SHIRO in Japanese means white or Castle.

In this case both meanings are appropriate as the quilt I have just made is White and the person I have made it for loves everything white…

Her name is Sarah & she’s my sons girlfriend. Her bedroom (which is her “Castle”) has everything white in it … so I think she will like what I have made her.

She loves the FMQ that I do & loves Rag quilts as well. Being white its been a process of being very careful so that it doesn’t get dirty. Well thank goodness I’ve not spoiled it !!


And so another gift done & the next one follows…..

  1. Very, very pretty. It looks very soft, cosy and comfortable. I must talk to you about the best way to light a quilt like this so all your hard work is shown to advantage (ie, natural daylight, from the side, to show off the quilt texture).

      1. That’s right. Some colours are very hard to photograph, and some combinations don’t work well in artificial light. Quilting is very hard to show well if you need to use a flash, for any reason. If you possibly can, always in daylight, indirect (so not the sun shining straight on it) and coming from the side a bit, which will help the quilting cast shadows so that you can see the detail. If you can’t get daylight, you need a lamp with a daylight bulb which is a whiter light, not so yellow as normal indoor lighting. I’ve learned such a lot over the years by making lots of mistakes. Time to pass on the learning!
