The Shout Color Catchers did their job! They caught so many different colors that the end result was a sort of brown. But it was so dark and overcast I had to wait until this morning (and the big snow storm) to take a picture.
Primogeniture helped me hang a rope in the fall on the hooks that are permanently hung under our back porch. These hooks were originally installed to hang red, white and blue bunting for patriotic holidays. I never imagined I'd be getting more use out of them as quilt displays.
Once the quilt was in place, I had to tromp through the 12+ inches of snow from the last few days to get to the right position to take a picture. The snow almost came over the top of my rain boots. I guess I was too lazy to go to the basement and dig out my uber-snow boots!
Look how bright the white portions of the quilt are. No bleeding of colors here. Not one drop of red anywhere except where the red is supposed to be.
I used a black and white checkerboard for the binding.
And voila - my finished Dr. Seuss - Cat in the Hat quilt is complete.
My friend Shanti says she puts a box of the Shout Color Catchers in the gift bag whenever she gives a bright colorful quilt away. What a brilliant idea.
