One of the reasons I wanted to live in a house with a backyard was so that when I finished a quilt I could hang it over the white picket fence and take pictures of it.

I said it was one of the reasons. Not the only reason. That would be sad.

I finished the quilt that I had made to match the walls in my bedroom.

Before I finished the quilt, I moved bedrooms. So, now it’s on the ‘daybed’ (two mattresses).  I still have to spray water onto the quilt to get the removable pen marks out.  Oops…

Excuse the pillows and cushions – I haven’t made covers that blend in so well yet. The cute bunny was made by my sister.
