|Thoroughly Modern Lily|
I hope that during the past couple weeks, many of you have had a chance to explore the tutorial for the Four-Lily block that forms the basis of this quilt. The block tutorial will remain available here as an adjunct to the quilt pattern. You can find the four-part tutorial anytime under the Tutorials tab at the top of the page.
Whether you've made just one block or the whole quilt, I welcome your comments, questions, and photos.
Lastly, just for fun, here are a few outtakes from the quilt photo shoot last month. Daughter M. and her boyfriend, Nick, were my assistants and chief quilt holder-uppers. They had no idea when they visited on Mother's Day that I would put them to work, but I really appreciated their help.
It was a breezy day, so they held onto the edges of the quilt through the fence with their fingertips. Right before I snapped the picture, I'd yell, "Hide your fingers!" As ridiculous as that sounds, I'm sure there was giggling and eye-rolling behind the fence.
Of course, the wind did its thing anyway. I've got about a dozen more photos just like these.
Thanks to all for your encouragement and support during this process. I am looking forward to getting my hands busy on some new things, finishing up some old, and hopefully blogging a bit more regularly again as well.
