All right, the disaster of this weekend with the framing of the American Flag Quilt (described here) has been undone. Whew! I tidied up the mess they made with the threads by presumably whipping it with a stick (?! I honestly have no idea what else they could have been doing that would have caused that much damage!), took it back to the store, and the salesman popped it into the frame and secured the back within five minutes. I really appreciated his concern and the care he took making sure I was happy with it. They've framed a couple of pieces for me before (you can see them here), and they did a great job with them, and I've gotta say after this customer service experience I will definitely come back.
So, the big reveal:
Taking a picture was a delicate balance: enough light that the colors showed realistically, but not so much that there was a glare. And this isn't hung up, it's just propped up on the bed's headboard until I can find it a home. I went for a very simple, plain wooden frame, aiming for a vintage Americana look. There's so much detail in this piece that I didn't think a busy frame would be necessary. What do you guys think?
