Champagne.............

Remember I made this quilt at Nundle.............the post is here with all the details...........Miss B did a fantastic job on the quilting and also I used her binding fairy as I was pressed for time to get the binding sewn on and stitched down in time for my brothers birthday..............thanks so much...........it was wonderful to pull it out of the package completely finished............
if I can get Fairy Girl out of the road I may get some pics............she is a hoot when she gets hold of the camera............never quite know what your going to get...........sometimes I can't even work out what i am looking at she takes such odd interesting things...........(oh and Julie we had a self portrait session yesterday and it was so funny...........sorry i won't be sharing any here...........lol)
(a)
my favourite place on the farm is down the (very rarely running) creek
(b)
the trees are amazing down there.............
(c)
one of these will become a card.............
(d)
which one is your favourite.............I have (a-f) underneath them...........
(e)
and I really liked this one rolled up...............
(f)
I can't decide which one is my favourite..........let me know what you think........
hope you had a great weekend..............I did.............
Take Care til next time...............

  5. I like D because it looks like a gust of wind caught it which adds movement to the to the photo.

    But having said that, there's not a bad one one in the lot!

  11. Oh I love them all, but for a card maybe B with the long grasses in front, or C where the quilt looks very at home among the gum trees. E is a bit too dappled sun but F looks lovely all rolled up!! Sorry, not much help am I? A very beautiful quilt xo

  12. I love 'c'. The photo seems to pick up the lovely colours in the quilt. Hugs, Jeanette

  13. I like d or e for the card . . . or f if you prefer. It's a great boy quilt up a tree.

  14. A is my favorite composition. The quilt against the tress is just lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I realy love the colours in this quiilt - and the pattern :o) It's wounderful!

    ReplyDelete
  26. D does it for me but it would be sooooo much lovelier with little miss Fairy in it also :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Im for the C pic too. Love the landscape.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I like B and F, but what about using the one with Fairy Girl in it that's lovely.

    What type of gum tree? or is it a willow. I couldn't reach the lower branches of any of our gums( eucalytus saligna )they are so tall and mostly straight.

    That's a great place to display and photograph a lovely quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like a,c,f...quilt looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Beautiful pics....I think C is my fav with the grass stalks blowing gently across the bottom of the photo.
    The quilt is just gorgeous....love those colours.

  31. I am very partial to the rolled up version f, though they all look good.I think c would be my second choice. Wish I had a binding fairy!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Chooky....wow...the quilt is just gorgeous...all photos are great...can't decide between a, b or c....

    ReplyDelete
  33. I like F and if you crop that very thin tree to the left forefront out of E I like that one. What a great place for a photo shoot.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I do love this quilt. Yep I like "f" also

    ReplyDelete
  35. Love the quilt, I'd have a hard time picking too but c does look a lot like the tree has its own cuddly blanki

    ReplyDelete
  36. Well my choice would be a and e. I have a non running gully until the rain and your photo's reminded me of it. Just love the photo's.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Every time I stop by to see you I find something pretty in your wonderful photos...gorgeous quilt! I am no help, I love all!

  38. Lovely quilt- what a lucky brother! B or E would be my choice for a card- I like the grass waving in the breeze.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I Just love this quilt - especially the border fabric. I have the same fabric to make a quilt but a different pattern and after seeing yours a can't wait to start it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. The quilt is gorgeous!

    d and f are may favourite pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I like "C" cause it looks like the tree throw the quilt over its shoulder..the rolled up one is clearer..but "C" has a little character.
    Thanks for visiting love your blog

  47. A lovely quilt for your brother. I like it a lot. I think I like picture a just because you can see more of the quilt but the last is pretty neat how you rolled it up.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love F too, but C is a really good closer shot of the pattern and colours. Any would be great though, they're all beautiful.

  57. I like "D" because it seems to show off the quilt the best. I like "E" because of the play of sunshine & shadow. . .between both the tree & on the quilt.

    It is a lovely quilt.

    ReplyDelete

  63. Great Shots Chookyblue... but gotta go for the rolled up version... Just Cause !

    ReplyDelete
  64. Fourth picture down is the one I like best and my second choice would be the last one as it gives a good close up of those gorgeous fabrics.
    What a fabulous quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hey Chooks I love the one with Fairy Girl admiring her mum's work and hoping she can be just like her mum one day. The rolled up one is my next choice and then B as it shows the knarly bark of the tree which is a great contrast with the colours of your gorgeous quilt.
