Black Rules Finish

Not really, I still have to sew the hanging sleeve, but for all intents and purposes, this quilt is done.

Somebody is gonna have to tell me how to photograph a black quilt and make the colors glow like they do in real life. The quilt is AWESOME, and this photo doesn't show any of that.

The quilt is 47-1/2" wide by 54" tall (about 120 cm x 137 cm)

Magnificent work. You written superb and best quotation on it. The colour selection is perfect as well as the font is wonderful. I also do the same work with birthday quotation.

Love love love it. I am not the person with advice on getting the colors more vibrant. I have struggled with that myself, just figure that I probably need: better camera
better camerawoman
better lighting

Love this photo with the greenery and fence contrasts! Check out "Shoot That Quilt" at for lots of solid suggestion for photographing quilts (all colors).

I find the colors glow the most when I have the quilt in full sun - close ups rather than full on shots.

p.s. I still don't have a "good" photo of Plaid Happens for this exact reason (brights/plaids on multi blacks).
