Better on the Bed

As expected I finished my quilt top, Ladies in Waiting. I'd like  a good flat shot of it on the wall, but it is a bit too big to fit there and I didn't feel like climbing to put it up either. Maybe when the light in the room is better I can do that. That is usually in winter when the sun is shining on the snow and the room is brighter. The flash on my camera is not as effective when I get clear across the room to take the photo.

Meanwhile I continue to work on projects scattered about the room. I guess I don't need to go into the closet looking for work afterall.   As I look about my room I see finished blocks waiting for some setting fabric. Borders waiting for me to purchase more black thread. Borders to go on another quilt top that Sue had removed before she decided to give it to the Comfort Quilt group. And at least 3 quilts waiting for binding. No doubt there is more if I look. But my focus right now is really my next book. I am hoping to finish up the text and illustrations by New Years. The quilting is almost done. In between I have to do some piecing. It's my therapy. And then I squeeze in some blogging; especially on Mondays.

The top is beautiful. Well done.

Very pretty quilt, and it looks like a perfect fit. I like the way you used solids to enhance the print.

I like bed shots--when quilts are on a wall I can't always visualize the drape, and how the quilt fits the bed is a big part of the final look. I especially like the look of your border and that the quilt hangs to the floor.

I like the way you picked up all the colors in the focus fabric in the star blocks. The staggered stars in the border add a nice dimension to the design. Sometimes the quilt-on-the-bed can look very different from the (same) quilt-on-the-wall.

Wow. It's fabulous. Will you use it on your bed? Just how many quilts do you use on your bed in a year?
