SUNDAY MORNING.......

........at the Church. We have a beautiful old Church building here in town. While I was piecing "Sunday Morning", it occurred to me that this might be a good location to photograph it. It wasn't raining, but the WIND!






After wrestling with it for a few minutes, I decided to stand on a corner of it. This presented a new problem---I created a sail!  I nearly had lift-off a couple of times, but I was not letting go of that quilt!




It was a little quieter in the doorway, so Hubby snapped a pic there.


It blew off right after I snapped this one.


Isn't the quilting gorgeous? Linda quilted it with giant daisies all over.


I absolutely LOVE this quilt.  Katja has more books coming in soon.


You may want to add this book to your library. It's a wonderful resource for using up those scraps.
Happy stitching.

Wonderful quilt and wonderful photos. I can just imagine all the photo-taking scene as my husband and I go through the same gyrations every time I need to photograph my quilts, haha.

What a lovely quilt, Carla! So sweet! Great location choice for the pictures. :)

Kathy said...

This is a great book Carla - I've been eyeing it in our local bookshop :) I laughed at your photos, it can be so hard to take a good picture some days! The quilt is lovely and the curves of the quilting are a nice balance to the straight lines of the blocks.

Deborah said...

Lovely quilt, and well done for preserving and getting it photographed!

It's lovely! She did a beautiful job on the quilting, too.

Laughed a little at the photo shoot - man, if it's not raining, blowing or snowing, it's just no fun taking quilt pics! Ha. :-)

I love this finished quilt! The perky daisies are a nice contrast to the straight lines in the piecing. Good eye for scouting out an innovative photo shoot site!

Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous! It makes me want to work faster on mine. I've been doing dark and/or bright for so long, it's been fun to work on a light quilt. Thanks for sharing the photos. Beautiful!
