|Photo shoot on the ski bridge|
If you are a regular reader of this blog, you have seen my Liberated quilt before. The colorful solids used to make the strips are mainly scraps from my oldest son's Artist Palette quilt with some corduroy, shot cottons and silk thrown in. The strips were finished over a year ago but put aside because I could not make a decision on the sashing/background fabric.
|Should have pressed the quilt before hand|
Wanting to show this quilt at our Gruber's retreat this summer, I finally decided on KONA Ash for the sashing strips and a bright KONA Eggplant for the backing. I quilted Liberated with my walking foot in a square spiral using Silver thread by Connecting Threads. The binding strips are also leftovers, this time from my oldest son's high school graduation quilt.
After the retreat, I took advantage of our vacation spot, and with the help of my daughter, had a photo shoot with the quilt in the mountains. I waited until the last day which ended up being very windy. The quilt now lives with me in Florida and hasn't seen the mountains since. Come to think of it, neither have I ;-)
Because my daughter lost interest in the photo shoot rather quickly, I had to drape the quilt over the ski bridge which meant I don't really have a picture showing the entire quilt. I think this is my favorite picture though. I had to be quick with the shutter before the wind blew the quilt away.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you will visit again soon!
Enjoy the rest of the festival.
