Fast Forward to August 2014 and I finally finished it, but just never got the opportunity to photograph it. I took some fantastic photos (well, I thought they were fantastic) when we went out to burn a few sausages over a fire, at a friends place in the woods. Then I got home and tried to transfer them to my i-pad with a new dongly thing I bought, and shazam! I deleted them all from the camera card, including all 700+ photos from our holiday!!! Fortunately Gordon had copied the holidays ones onto his laptop, but the quilt ones had gone for good! Here's one of Bridget's photos of me artistically arranging a quilt for a shot
and here's one of Bridget's quilt in exactly the same position as mine was on an old railway coach type thing. Imagine!
|Bugger off Lucy!|
I don't think I got the back quite right, but I didn't have enough of the Tula Pink fabric, so I made some double size diamonds
|I love the way the sun shines through this one|
|Me again, mum!|
I wanted to quilt it in a way that would emphasize the diamonds, and the idea of a waterfall, and it had to be straight line, as I have no FMQ foot at the moment. (Don't worry about the pen marks - it's a frixxion pen and it will wash out - I hope)
It's still not been washed (in fact I might do it today!) but I'm going to be careful because I don't actually want this one to crinkle to much)
Oh and why is it Diamond Falls, not Love Beads? Well I felt, and I don't think I'm alone on this one, that Love Beads had a slighty seedy feel about it! So it had to be changed! And as it reminded me of a waterfall, so it was Diamond Falls.
