It is a quilt for a special person in my life. Her colors, her nautical theme, a good size for a cool balcony reading wrap around, picnic, or kinder pad, (should she ever have grand children). It will grace her beach condo with aplomb. I loved the fabrics, such a nice hand. The pattern was fun. The quilting, well I may have gotten carried away and applied a little too much, I like loft, but this is still acceptable for what I wanted. It washed well, nothing came loose. It has cuttlebility. (Put that in your Funk 'n Wagner)
Then I hung it for a photo. It looks great up close, but it isn't photogenic. The neighbors won't be impressed from their flats as she hangs it out to air on her balcony. I looked at the 10 shots . . . and now you know the rest of the story.
