A wedding ring photo shoot - and...... Finished (or not) Friday

 I figured since I was going to play hooky I should take my quilt with me and see what I could see.... and!

the wind was  little blowy - but I think I got some okay photos of the Wedding Ring quilt!

Ta -da - and Unbound Double wedding Ring quilt


I really wanted the quilting to show up - but sometimes 
I think the sun can be too bright.
of which, I am not complaining - I would prefer too sunny than the smoke that we have been having.


A little close up


one of the things that I noticed is that a lot of the peach fabric was 100% cotton, then someone must have ran out, as there is some cotton Poly mix, especially in the borders. This fabric made the quilting a little tougher in spots - as it wasn't as stretchy and nice to work with .

and then - just to prove that I really was in the mountains.

Fantastic save. What an amazing story this quilt must have. Now your chapter has been started too.

Oh my goodness! (Or should I say Oh YOUR goodness) You stepped up to the challenge and turned that old top into a beauty. Awesome job!

One would never know there were lumps and bumps in that quilt. WTG for sticking with it!

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

when you think of the condition the top was in before you started to quilt it - it really is amazing what the quilting has done to it - it made it come alive!

Kat Scribner said...

That's such a beautiful quilt! I love your choice of a unique background fabric. It ties everything together perfectly.

Bravo for taming that tiger! And what a gorgeous spot, much better than the damp, cold campground we are currently in!

Congratulations on turning a found quilt top into a finish and something that can be used and loved. The quilting is spectacular!

Snowcatcher said...

My gosh, what beautiful work, and such a beautiful setting. Yes, it is indeed nice to have clean air again, and I hope it lasts for a while. Now praying for the folks in and near Estes Park, Loveland and Fort Collins, who are still dealing with it, as well as the firefighters and those in harm's way.
