So this is very exciting and a little disappointing at the same time. Exciting because I got to be a part of this wonderful thing making a quilt for Joel Dewberry with his new line, Notting Hill, and disappointing because I have positively DISMAL pictures of it.
Ugh. Photography and I are not friends.
So why do I have such terrible pictures? Weather. I knew I would be finishing the quilt Monday night, and that I would be meeting Laurie Dewberry on Tuesday to deliver it to her. I called a friend and arranged for her to come help me take good pictures Tuesday morning. She's a much better photographer than I am, and I wanted to get some good straight-on shots rather than just lying on the grass like I normally do. And then it started raining last night. And it kept raining until about 10 minutes before I gave the quilt to Laurie. We had to take pictures in my horribly lit basement, and they just didn't turn out well. I'm grateful for the rain--Utah is the second driest state, and we've had a dry year, so we needed every drop, but I'm still sad I don't have better documentation of this quilt that is somewhat momentous for me. My friend took a few pics with her camera too, but she's had a very busy day and hasn't had a chance to send them to me yet. Hopefully they turned out better than the ones with my camera. Crossing my fingers.
If any of you are at Quilt Market this weekend, PLEASE take some better pictures for me. I'd really appreciate it.
This pattern is called Subway, and I'm told it will be available as a free download from Joel Dewberry's website some time soon.
Notting Hill is beautiful. I have loved working with it, and I'm glad to have some nice scraps left over too!
