I finally completely washed Hexi, my Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt. And, surprise–she’s white, not off-white! Huh. I tried to get a good before-and-after comparison but it’s not that striking. I’ll show what I have anyway.
And of course, Hexi got a photo shoot to show off her clean, good-smelling look.
I have a thing for black and whites. And since this is an antique I thought it would go. But now I realize I should have shot in SEPIA tone. Oh well!
Okay, I couldn't resist. Pretend you're looking at a photo from the 1930's, friends.
Aunt Helen, a long time ago you said I should make cards with photos of my quilts on them. I haven't forgotten that. And I keep trying to take quilt photos worthy of a card. Thank you for the encouragement.
The Lego mansion and the uncovered pillows don't really add to the photo, but I wanted to show you Hexi in her new home, on our guest bed. It makes me happy every time I see her.
