See Jim's abandoned row boat above his head The boat The whole finished for the final time quilt with added boat Probably the neatest back I have made to date.
No puckers!!!! Wow.
I must have done something right! ;-)
Imagine a photo of me top sewn by hand to the very right bottom of the story-letter
in bottom right corner.Okay, DH and I had to discuss one last feature on the quilt. He wanted a picture of Jim's boat on it center front. It's a picture that shows his boat abandoned in a field by his old house. I first found the only picture I had of a boat from there and used it on the top of the letter to Abby. But when DH saw that photo he said, "That's not the boat." Jim's boat was a smaller row boat in front of that larger boat. I didn't know! So I had to re-crop that photo and try to figure out where to put it on the quilt. He wanted it dead center (instead of the colorful parrot in the tree). I wanted the colorful spot in the center to give the quilt more pizazz! So we compromised. It is now above the photo of Jim surrounded by his beloved fish. A fitting spot we both agreed. DH also insisted I put a photo of myself on the back. I did. I am not photographing that. You've seen me before! But it is there for posterity sake.
