Pink and Purple Strippy Square Photo Shot.

I realized earlier this year that I hadn't sewn a label on this quilt, nor had I taken any photos of it finished. I rectified both of those issues today. After the label was sewn on, it was time for the photo shot. Miss C is a friend of Milly's, in the same year at school, they were both the new girls in class on that first day of pre primary two years ago. Her family is lovely, we socialize with them a lot, it's great.

Standing outside, trying to get it to hang straight, just one more photo, it doesn't matter if you arms are killing you, hold it still! Nearly done...

I lay it on the grass for the last shot and Miss C came running over and said, "You can't put it on the grass! It will get dirty then we'll have to wash it!" I look at her Mum and ask "Haven't you washed it yet?" She got it for Christmas!! We have had this conversation before, she think it is too precious to throw in the washing machine, pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I'm chuffed that they think it is too precious to wash but the greatest thing I love is the fact that a quilt is washed as then its loved and used. After quilting the blue square baby quilt yesterday and blogging this now, I realize that I do a lot of quilts with white sashing around squares of colour..... Good thing or bad thing?

If you enjoy making them and enjoy how they look finished then it's definitely a good thing!

Do you wash them before you gift them?

Great photos.

So beautiful! I love white sashing around print blocks - it looks so fresh! I need to print out washing and drying instructions to give away with my quilts so that people realize it's ok to wash and dry them - and use them!!
