Taking Pictures

I wanted to take some good photographs of a few quilts that I want to enter in some quilt shows. That entails getting out my super big piece of black fabric to cover the design wall so that a white quilt will show up better. This quilt is 68″ X 88″, and so I have to hang it sideways on my design wall. I was sweating by the time I got the black fabric in the right place and this quilt placed just so on the wall. After all that work, I left the quilt on the wall for a couple of days just so I could admire it as I walked by 🙂

I also learned how to change the pixels in a photograph. Its just amazing what your computer can tell you how to do when you word your question correctly.

Here’s a smaller quilt–so much easier! to photograph. I really like this quilt a lot. It has wording, embroidery, and beading all over it.

And this third little quilt, that I photographed after I took the black fabric off the design wall.

I also took the opportunity to take a nice picture of my Hallelujah! quilt while I had the black background up.

And that’s it for my photography sessions for a while.
