Sewn!.............

I put the photo of this African colorwash on Instagram and someone asked what size squares I used (2.5").  After I answered her someone else then commented they thought it was a big bed quilt.  I decided the photo with a yardstick for perspective was necessary on Instagram and also here on my blog.  Then when someone wanders onto my blog in the future they can see immediately that it isn't a queen size quilt.  I am contemplating adding a border to this one and I will probably work on it on Friday.

That is too funny! If this was a queen sized quilt every one of those prints would have had to be huge! The picture with the yardstick is a great solution.

It is difficult to see the size of a piece through a picture unless there is something to compare it with. I like to think that is my advantage, that my work looks bigger and more impressive because they can't see how small it is!

The idea of scale is kind of funny. I always say if it is a good composition, it will look great tiny or giant size. This quilt proves it. I like the idea of a border.

Good idea to use the yardstick - computer images can be SO deceiving relative to size.

Have you ever considered making a queen size colorwash with 6" squares?

The yardstick is a good idea. I often think quilts I see online might be bigger than they actually are. I wish all online fabric shops would do the same too.

I like your thoughts on a border, looking forward to seeing it. It's a grand Colorwash to brighten up any room.

I do like this Colorwash and would never have thought of using the African fabrics, but they work brilliantly!
