Finally, a photo shoot!
First I had a very hard time finding a fence that was wide enough and tall enough to hang this quilt.
It is 93 x 93 inches in size.
Our local park has sections that are too narrow and the posts are on the inside. I gave up on that idea.
My second favorite spot is just too low. So... I put my quilt and my step ladder into my back bike basket and set off for the river where there are some parks and ball fields.
I found this sunny spot, but when I hung the quilt up, the ginkgo tree cast a shadow along the top edge. Also the wind kept blowing the quilt out like a tent fly. Kids on bikes were riding underneath. Not so good.
I decided to go farther down the river and see if there might be another fence that would work.
Here is that picture. I think the sun shows off the color better and there is a little competition with a plant on the right but, for the most part, I am satisfied. I am almost tempted to drive out to my old neighborhood where there were many high chain-link fences around several ball fields and I had a choice of sun or shade.
I am pretty sure I will try this pattern again, making larger blocks and not using sashing. I stopped by the rice store to show the finished quilt to the owner who had so kindly let me use her floor for basting. She was as happy to see the finished quilt as I was to have it finished.
No excuse now not to begin the baby quilt and get ready for the Tohoku trip. (Of course I can always begin another star if I need some procrastination).......
