My latest quilt was finished a few days ago, and yesterday was destined for the big photo shoot. Unfortunately it started raining when we started walking, but since the photo location was very close to home we made a go for it after all.
My quilt holder (aka husband) was sporty enough to accompany me in the ordeal. I brought a plastic cover to protect the quilt and camera in between photos.
This is a charity quilt I made for the children's ward at my local hospital. The fabrics are suited for a relatively small child, so the size of the quilt is approximately 42" x 52" after washing and drying.
We had fun on our walk in the rain looking for good photo locations. The fall colors make a perfect backdrop.
This is a gorgeous tree.
Some semi-man made locations, too. Here you can see the water droplets on the camera lens, it was raining quite a lot.
We also walked by an electric power supply plant.
Since this quilt is going to a sick child, I used a raspberry fabric from Ikea as the backing. The detailed fabrics in the simple patchwork front together with the cheery back ought to be able to keep the mind off the illness for a while.
Here is a detailed picture of one of the panel blocks. I quilted it with a simple crosshatch across the blocks.
This completes my 13th charity quilt for the hospital.
