Granny is a bit tricky...

to photograph.

King-size granny square quilt at home on my bed.

Who knew that the hardest part would be trying to photograph her in all her glory? ;o)
Kinda of mean to just give you a teaser, but I'm still trying to work out the best way to capture this king size quilt in a good picture.  Thinking an outdoor shot would be nice, but wondering how well a mostly white quilt will stand out when it's still pretty white outside (not to mention the best way to bribe some much needed quilt helpers to hold her - they do not enjoy holding smaller quilts, so holding granny for a photo op will really raise their opposition... ;o).  I promise to figure something out to show her off a bit better.

 Anyways, you now have some proof I finished her.
  Happy beyond words, that I can finally cross her off my first quarter 2014 Finish Along list. Yay!

  5. She does look pretty - do you have a clothesline you could hang her from? I had to LOL about your assistants not wanting to hold the smaller quilts - mine don't either :D

  6. I hope you gave yourself a pat on the back and, of course, a special treat for finishing the quilt. It looks amazing.

  8. Oh what a beautiful quilt! I'm looking forward to another picture when you round up you're helpers. I understand about quilt helpers. I once had a queen size PP quilt and had to remove lot of paper. So I bribed a helper with pizza. LOL! A girls gotta' do what a girls gotta' do. :)

  10. I could have sworn I commented on this yesterday... well, anyway, it looks fantastic in that in use shot. I can't imagine getting it high enough to photograph well anyway -- your helpers will have to stand on something to hold it up.

    You could come photograph it on my front lawn - it's all white, so maybe you'll lose it and then I can snatch it up when/if this snow ever melts....

  12. She is quite delicious! Try standing on a chair at the foot of the bed and do a bird's view, from above.
    LOVELY!
