No, this wasn't a big outside project, although there are plenty of those on our summer's list that we would be happy to have done already. This particular project was a quilted one that I worked on (off and on) for about a year.
As I was tidying up our bedroom yesterday morning, it occurred to me that I'd never posted a picture of the king-sized quilt I made for our bed.
I had a chance later in the morning to corral my tall husband and tall daughter for a couple of minutes and asked them to hold the quilt up outside on the deck so you could get the full view of it.
This is another shot of it on the bed.
And this last picture I snapped last night in dim lighting shows the beautiful job of quilting on it. I had it done on a long-arm quilting machine at our local quilt shop by a talented gal.
The quilt is what is known as a "scrap" quilt. All of the fabric used was from bits and pieces in my stash. The backing fabric was purchased (one huge piece) and I was lucky enough to get that on sale for 35% off the original price.
I'm very happy with the way it turned out. And very happy to have it done.
