How do you photograph a quilt…
If I throw mine over a hanger, and photograph it in a sunny room, the colour is true, but you can't see the over all quilt. If I throw it on the bed, you can see more of the quilt, but the northerly light produces dull, greyish blue colour. I'm not even going to show the version where I hung the quilt up to the window–truly dire–a really weird silhouette/stained glass window effect!
I was hoping to have this post ready for yesterday, but was too engrossed in sewing, which I think is a fairly good excuse for not blogging. I'm hoping that by next Wednesday, I'll have filled in more of the gaps with extra bits of lace and ruffles. Who knows, I might even have attached the final two rows of squares and rectangles patchwork. Of course that will make the quilt top even bigger, and even more difficult to photograph!
