Patrick prefers the stripes running horizontally, and I have to agree, somehow they make our rather small bedroom seem much larger. Having a small bedroom has made photographing the finished quilt much more difficult than it should be, so for now all I can show are pics of the folded quilt, and these, somewhat disappointing snaps of the quilt on our bed, which don't really do it justice. I fear I might have to head for the park (we don't have a garden) and find a bench or branch I can hang the quilt from. I am panic filled at the mere thought, the last time I did this, I was so completely self-conscious that I rushed the photographs so no longer have a proper record of my last quilt as I've since given it away. Patrick has suggested hanging the quilt on a wall, which a I think is a great idea. Unfortunately this means fixing a rail that is fit for purpose, in an area that is well lit, which will involve much decision making on our part. As it usually takes us ages to decide on anything (partly procrastination, partly a natural tendency towards slothness) this post would probably have to wait until next Christmas–and I'm much too impatient for that!
