For me, one of the fun things about finishing a quilt is the photo session that follows!
And so it was for my newly completed Farm Girl Vintage!
Of course I decided it fitting that a Farm Girl quilt needed photographing on the farm. So started my tramp around the sheds and buildings looking for the right setting....
(Warning! Self Indulgent post! Photo Heavy!)
Surely hay bales will give a suitably rustic photo?
|Not enough room to lay it out.|
|Pin it to the rafters..... but if I step back far enough to get it all in, I fall nearly|
2 metres to the ground.
The back of the calf shed —
|Sort of rustic but boring.|
The chook yard fence?
|Oops it fits if it's sideways...|
|Right way up, it was too long.|
But nice backdrop!
|A quick closeup....showing the border fabric.|
Simple quilting, with cross hatching in the border.
|A few swirls in some blocks, mostly outline stitching or SID|
|With a chicken?|
|With a dog?|
|With a different dog?|
How about in a different shed?
|Sort of rustic but not enough room.|
Outside the shed?
|Believe it or not, this was my favourie rustic shot..... but I was downhill...!|
It's a wrap.
Time to roll up the quilt and feed the chickens.
|And time to get on with my day :-)|

Made for The Country Yard as a sewalong sample.
I really enjoyed making this quilt...there are lots of possibilities and ideas for using the different blocks in different ways. A book I know I will keep on using!
Busy day today, must be off :-)
