Winter Blues...final photos

Lest you think I'm no longer doing any quilting (yes, I know, it has been a while...sigh...) here are some photos I promised you a while back... just before I had the issues with my camera- the photos weren't saving to the memory card, if you remember.... My trusty camera tech retrieved them for me. Yay!!
Here are a few shots of the blue string quilt ("Winter Blues") I did for the Veterans Unit, one of the projects our Guild took on this year. I had been trying to come up with a good spot to take some outdoor photos, when I suddenly remembered this lovely old snake fence that my neighbour just up the street has on her front lawn. (I called her to "ask permission" but she wasn't home... so I just helped myself! Thanks Mary!!) This was such a fun quilt to make (and SO easy), I can certainly see me doing another one someday (to keep for myself - yes I need another blue quilt...ha!).


Peace,
Linda

Beautiful blues!! It really turned out lovely.

Pretty! I hope the weather is less blue than it was.

Winter Blues turned out gorgeous..

Particularly spot-on setting for the photo too...The criss-cross pattern of the fence perfectly compliments and repeats the pattern of your quilt.
I'm sure your neighbour would be flattered that her fence was used for the background.

Really lovely! Found myself wishing for a larger photo so I could see the details. Someone was blessed to receive it.

It is gorgeous, Linda! Lucky person who gets to sleep under it!! A great idea to display it on the cedar fence. Looks like sunshine will be in the forecast for the next several days. Our summer weather is being quite kind to us this year, except for Arthur and yesterday's rain. :)

Linda, David Dickson loved it when I took it to the Veterans' Unit! It went right on his bed. Thanks again for supporting the Veterans' quilt project! Jeanne Kaye
