The nearest thing to a proper photo I will have for some time

Until I get this blocked is the closest I can get to a finished photo. I don't have ceilings high enough to hang it and my garage door is too low as well. I tumble dried it a little yesterday, I don't like to tumble too much as it takes some of the surface off the prints. I then laid it on top of another quilt to dry with a fan blowing on it. Very nearly dry when I needed the bed back to sleep on so it's now gently folded in the airing cupboard.

  1. It's really beautiful! I'm going to wait until you have it blocked to share it on my Field Trips list - unless you aren't going to post more photos - people need to see this quilt!
