I have a bit of disappointing news for today...the photos of the 2 Benjamin Franklin quilts are not ready...the quilts are, but the photos aren't. My original intent was to take the quilts to Philadelphia, Ben Franklin's hometown, to be photographed...a plan I intend to keep...Erik and I had time to go together in the past two weeks, but when we started making plans, the weather in Philly and NW Ohio would not co-operate; cold-wet-rain-cloudy...the Non-Traditional Quilt is big and needs to be taken outside to be fully seen and photographed! We tried to take some decent photos, but I am not happy with what I took....and you would not be either. The photos don't do justice to these beautiful quilts.
That said, I urged Erik not to use the photos we took under the clouds since they do not do justice to the quilts. He is disappointed, too...I know how long this project has taken and how happy he was, and you will be, with the sense of accomplishment when you finish.
It's Saturday, 21 May, and it is still raining here...no rain on Monday...but I won't be here...and rain the rest of the week?! Fingers crossed, maybe that will change...
I am not sure of the exact date the photos will post...I will be away from my camera this week, but I can tell you as soon as my schedule allows and the weather co-operates Erik will have his photos to post! He will keep you up-to-date and all of this...even if the quilts don't get to Philadelphia right away, you will at least get good photographs from me in the meantime...so please hang in there...and accept my apologies for the delay...I think once you see the quilts, you will be pleased I made this decision.
My best to all of you
PS: Erik wanted me to remind all of you that there is one post left after today for the quilt instructions! There will be another post after that with information about the Ben Franklin Mystery Quilt (block list etc.)
