One of my college sons accompanied me for the photo shoot in the snow, and there is a lot of snow! My fingers got real cold operating the camera, it was freezing!
The playground was a perfect setting for the photo session, and the color of the house in the background is a perfect match with the quilt.
My son was the perfect quilt holder, and with a few breaks in-between to rest wide-stretched arms and to heat fingers, the photo session was a success. .
All my maple leaves look like they have fallen down on a snow covered ground, literally! I am happy I used pure white background fabric for the quilt.
As you can see, we have LOTS of snow! Fortunately the snow was really dry, and it was easy to brush it off afterwards.
I did an all over woodgrain quilting with my walking foot, and used approximately 10 bobbins in the quilting process. I like the density of the quilting, and after a wash-and-dry cycle the quilt is nice and soft. As you can see in the picture above, I added a little interesting detail; a negative mini leaf.
Here is more of the quilting . I am very pleased with the quilting texture and the amount of negative space in the quilt.
I used only fabrics from my stash for the maple leaves; how is it possible to acquire so many fall-colored fabrics in such a relatively short time?
The backing for the quilt is a text fabric from IKEA, and the binding is a striped fabric I bought at Hancock's a while ago. It may be difficult to see, but the binding has got quite a lot of golden color in it. It goes very well together with the quilt, and it gives a perfect golden frame to one of my best-looking quilts so far.
