The binding is on and loose threads are tied off and nipped away. I’ve decided I like the quilting on this after all. The meandering fits the snowflake theme I think. It’s a gentle snowfall with flakes drifting down vs. a raging storm which I think straight line quilting would’ve represented. Taking a picture of a full quilt is hard to do. The ones we took with the quilt held up (in natural light at about 4pm) don’t do the quilt justice because the piecing I did on the backing showed through, making a distracting stripe shadow down the middle of the quilt. I didn’t see the stripe until I downloaded these pictures tonight, too late to retake in the sunlight.
The ones taken with the quilt on the lawn give the snowflake/kaleidoscopes a ‘spaceship flying away from the camera’ look. Also not what I am looking for.
I’m going to try taking shots tomorrow in different daylight and see if I can do better. This quilt is not done teaching me lessons from experience.
