Yes, that is the newest quilt’s name. Tomorrow Morning. And it’s done.
A few days ago, Amanda was helping me with the photographing of this new quilt, when I decided to run back up to the house, to get a nail, to hang the quilt onto the fence with. Brilliant idea. It is a wall hanging and had a pocket with a rod in it, we just needed a nail to hang the rod over.
Remember we have a deep back yard. Really deep. This picture was taken from our back deck. The fence, I photograph quilts on, is as far back as you can see. Past the red trees, just in front of the solid tree line. Anyway, it took me a minute to run all the way back up to the house for a nail. (You would have thought my husband would have a nail in his woodworking studio, there, but no. He only uses screws and glue, no nails allowed….)
Anyway… daughter was patiently waiting for me, with the camera around her neck, when she heard a crashing noise. She turned around to see a doe and her fawn jump the fence then stop to pose for her. Not sure where the other fawn was, but momma has another one.
Scared the bejeezus out of her!
And off they went. I totally missed it!
Back to this week’s finish.
Ta Da!! I’m so excited!

I have been playing with this idea since February. I talked about it, a week or so ago, and now it’s done! And I love it. Totally freehand and without a finish in mind, I just kept plugging away. I can’t believe it came out entirely flat *and I was able to square it without removing too much work!
I also love that I went with machine quilting, as opposed to hand. I was able to get so much texture with the stitching. Stitching as close as 1/16th of an inch and as far apart as 1/2″. Some hand quilters might have been able to do it, but I’m not so sure my hands would have held out for all the layers. Or maybe it was a patience thing….
