True Fox

I took the Fox outside this morning, and tried to get a good picture, but the sun was already too bright. It bleached out the dark blue, so I will have to try again later, when the sun doesn't shine directly on the fence. (Now that I've got nails in the fence to hold the rod, it will be much easier to do this again!) (actually this looks fine on my laptop).
The colors in this photo of the Fox are very true to real life on my desktop pc, (on the laptop it's a bit orange), and you can see Chris's lovely quilting. I was at Quilted Threads yesterday showing it off. They loved it.

Here's another attempt, taken in the early afternoon. The colors are spot on. The dark background looks good, and the colors glow. You can click the photo to enlarge. (Again, the quilt is 48" wide by 57" tall)

Of course, if you are ever in New Hampshire, USA, get in touch, and you might get a chance to see it in real life!

True Fox is truly impressive, beautiful, amazing! The colors, the lettering, the spacing of the different elements, the personalities of the fox and the dog, the blend of whimsy and weight... it's perfectly wonderful.

I love how the binding frames it, could not have had a better finish! It is nice to hear the locals thoughts.
