As promised, I took outdoor pics of the mini whole cloth quilt I talked about in this weeks Main Crush Monday post. It was overcast and an extremely windy day, but I managed to get two halfway decent pictures. I’m glad this little guy wasn’t any bigger – it would have been blown away. The neighbors would NOT want to see me chasing my quilt across the yard! 🙂

Mini Wholecloth Quilt TextureI used Yvonne’s (Quilting Jetgirl) tip on temporarily hanging quilts for photographing. (You can see a video she made by clicking here.) I find using painters tape is a perfect way to hang a quilt to take pictures however, don’t use Frog Tape. It just doesn’t work for this. Great for painting, not for quilts. Today I used the Frog Tape and about lost the quilt to the wind. The blue painter’s tape works much better and will hold up a large throw quilt.

And the next picture….

Mini Wholecloth QuiltI used Superior’s So Fine! 50w thread in #507 Galileo. It is a beautiful blue/green/silvery looking thread that I fell in love with. I can’t wait to find another project to use it for.

Have a great Tuesday!
