The finish : "Margaret's Garden"

First let me clarify - I haven't fired my 10 yr old photographer, I just had to find another way to photograph my quilts when he's not around. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it :)
Anyway, I had an extra cafe curtain rod in the back of a closet and got this idea of putting the mounting brackets on the roof of the porch, so I could hang the quilts there, and photograph them myself. It works! I'll only have the rod up there when I'm photographing a quilt, but there may be potential for Christmas decorations.....
The final reveal of "Margaret's Garden." I like how it turned out. I've washed it to soften it up and it did a great job of hiding the starts and stops of stitching the crosshatch design. Especially on the back. I've called the recipient and should deliver it by the weekend.
The next project is quilting a quilt for a friend who has it all basted and ready to go.
Then it may be time to start tackling the denim quilt. My SIL has "weighed in" on that topic and asked for one in King size!!! That may take a while, so I think I'll make the smaller ones for my nephews first.
