(And you know what else is challenging? The light in wintertime. I love the colder months, but taking pictures in the gloom is not awesome at all. I've had to bring in portrait lighting and move my photo-taking to a room upstairs that faces a different direction. Oh the things you do for a slightly more acceptable photo! Still challenging -- and I might've gotten smacked on the head a couple times by the stupid lights -- but it's quite a lot better than shooting downstairs in my grey studio.)
And I have to say, with this quilt, I began my love affair with Kona Iron. I still love Kona Ash but OH EM GEE IRON IS THE PERFECT GREY. I have yards and yards to prove my love. Good going, Robert Kaufman!
