Quilt Reveal: The Earth Laughs in Flowers



I finished sewing down the binding, label and hanging sleeve of the daisies quilt while watching a couple of  marathon of shows on PBS: Mercy Street, Victoria, and Secrets of The Six Wives of Henry VIII.  The pattern has daisies in the title, but my niece and my sister say it looks more like sunflowers.  It is a gift for my niece, who is  concerned about the environment and is resembles a modern hippie. I thought "The Earth Laughs in Flowers" would be a better title than daisy's chickenpox, which was the working title of the quilt.

We went to a quilt show at a park yesterday, and I brought the quilt with me, so it could get a proper outing and beautiful backdrop for pictures.

We took a lot of gorgeous pictures, and I thought a slideshow would be a better way to show 16 of my favorites. Enjoy!

What a beautiful quilt. Your Smilebook presentation showcases the quilt in a lovely setting. I especially enjoyed seeing the quilt on the lap of the statue!

The slideshow was great but the quilt was spectacular! I just loved the picture of the quilt over the lap of the book reading statue!

Beautiful quilt! I thought the slideshow worked well - you were really inventive in your photo staging, though I think you were brave to hang the quilt on the tree by the bridge!

Beautiful quilt and fabulously staged in the video. Hanging the quilt in such pretty, natural settings really shows off the flowers. Also, thanks for the nice comment on my blog post. Susan
