Audition

Sturbridge Strawberries ~  56" X 68"
I decided, on a whim, to remove this quilt top from the "waiting to be quilted" queue and audition it (stick it up with masking tape) on an otherwise bare wall in the family room; I never had really given too much thought as to where this quilt would end up. I finished the piecing on it back in 1997; hey, it's already a classic! Well, the audition went well... so well, in fact, that Mr. Goodneedle suggested putting a sleeve on it and hanging it right away; he didn't realize it wasn't quilted yet! I guess I already know which quilt is next for a date with Sundance!
Life is Good!

Beautiful quilt and perfect for that room/setting. BTW ... did Mr. G do the crown work in that room ... lovely!

May I make a suggestion? Move it to the right a bit so it is centered on the sofa and not competing so much with the piano. Of course, then you have to move the lamp a bit, but the spotlights in the ceiling will also be in the perfect spot. Just my 2 cents. It is a beautiful spot for this lovely.

I'd say it was definitely made fr that wall! Ill bet it feels good to be finishing up such an oldie, but goodie!

Mr. G. nailed it - that quilt is PERFECT for that space!

If you hadn't said otherwise, I would have believed you had made that quilt specifically with that spot in mind. Perfect!
