Flower Riot Quilt for eBay
Anne made this quilt for sale on eBay. The quilt is a riot of flowers with
a dark purple border. That purple border is the bane of our lives.
Look at the photo. It looks black. We can't take a decent photo that
shows the colour properly. It's a deep rich purple colour in good
light. We haven't put it up on eBay yet because we can't get a good
enough photo to show that border colour. The quilt is completely
finished, even including the rod pocket at the back. Here you can see
us using a broom handle to demonstrate the finished product.
This is another attempt to take a photo in natural light to show the
purple colour. This is in our bedroom near the big window, and Anne
has managed to get a bit of the colour on the right. Note that huge
thing underneath the quilt. That's Redrum's tail.
Now this photo manages to catch much more of the purple. It also shows
the broom attached to the broom handle holding the quilt up, and shows
less of Redrum's tail.
This is a closeup of the quilt corner. The purple looks really black.
If Anne used lighter borders, they would photograph better, but the
then they probably wouldn't match the quilt as well.
