I persevered yesterday thanks to a marathon of Law and Order: Criminal Intent. I managed to get all my borders sewn on and it's nice and flat and square.
Of course I face the same problems.. where to get a photo. I would love a nice flat one. In fact, that's what I wished for the most while making this quilt, a nice flat photo of the whole quilt. Margot alternates the direction of her leaves in her quilt, but not on the diagram, and I would have liked to see how she did it.
I managed to get something I'm happy enough with. Just the right amount of to and fro with them, I wanted it to have the same kind of whimsy Margot's quilt had.
I love how it turned out, I like the pinks I chose, but I also wonder how all red would look. Would that be too much? Just too ripe and juicy? Well either way, love it. Sorry again the pictures aren't better. I climbed up on the ladder a couple of times and but it's pretty warm here and the a/c wasn't on yet and I just felt to hot and sweaty to go back and try for more.
I still have some strawberry ideas to play with. Are you making this quilt? I've been pretty lousy about checking blogs lately so let me know. I'm dying to see them! xo
