Ho boy... this post has been a long time coming since my first quilt - the Strip Quilt, as it were - was completed a month ago. I just couldn't figure out how to photograph the darn thing all fancy-like.
I thought about driving out to one of the farms nearby and draping it over wooden railing... but I had visions of a farmer, complete with jean overalls and a straw hat, running after me with a shotgun, yelling, "get off mah' ding-dang property, ya' red-headed step child!"
I thought about photographing it at the foot of our guest bed. Lame.
I thought about wrapping Parker up in it. Lame.
I thought about putting it on our red Adirondack chairs on the front porch. Eh... not too lame.
But I settled on gerry-rigging our dog leash to a tree in the backyard, using clothespins, and crossing my fingers that the quilt didn't land in a pile of P.U. Doggie Poo-Poo (which thankfully, it didn't). Still kinda lame, but at least you can see the whole thing done!
I actually enjoy the back more than the front, which is sad to say since the front took me about 10x longer to make than the back!
And lastly, here's a picture of the Parker-man enjoying it on the couch. Perfect!
I have visions of making another quilt this year. We'll see which fabrics in my stash make the cut!
