Savannah is just so large that getting a good photo of it is proving difficult. The black does not help either. Here, you can see it on the bed. It has a nice drop on three of the sides, but in hind sight I wish that there was a spacer so that the top row of blocks was on top of the pillows instead of tucked halfway under them.
A close-up of the outside border beyond the lime diamonds is washed out, but you can really see the quilting. The long arm quilter used a gray thread for quilting and each block is quilted differently, as is the border. Love the tulips in the border.
A Quilter's Dream Select Poly black batt was used although it seems light weight compared to Warm and Natural or the Hobbs 80/20 that I normally like in my quilts. And now, looky here, Connecting Threads sells a Hobbs 80/20 BLACK batt; wish it had been available when this was quilted. *sigh*
So Savannah is on the bed and keeping us warm.
