Just a quick post to share some quilt photos I took while visiting the parental units (borrowing a phrase from my baby sister here) last week.
|Got Pink? in a tree|
Since school is about to start, I took my youngest (the only one still living at home full time) to visit her Mississippi grandparents. We had a good time doing what we always enjoy doing - eating and talking. This time we threw in a few quilt shops and quilt photo expeditions.
Michelle asked me to take some pictures of quilts she had made
because I am constantly giving her a hard time about not taking pictures and posting her amazing quilts on her blog, and my mom suggested taking pictures by the incredible Gateway Oak alongside the highway in my hometown.
|My birthday wall quilt|
I'll let my sister share the pictures on her blog of the quilts she made (as soon as I email the photos to her!), but in the meantime, here are a few reruns. I took the birthday quilt my sister made me home to show my family. It was difficult photographing this one in the huge oak.
|Let's try again|
It was impossible to get a photo of the entire quilt and without a person in the background which was my goal. I love how the tree bark is reflected in the tiny center strips of the quilt.
I can't wait for Michelle to show you the pictures of her quilt I took displayed on the Gateway Oak. The oak tree is a perfect backdrop for that particular batik quilt with its greens, tans and browns.
|More Got Pink?|
I don't feel I ever really took any good pictures of the Got Pink? quilt I made for my mom several years ago so I took that one along on our photo shoot.
|And another one|
The more I see this quilt, the more I like it! I still don't have a decent enough picture of the quilt, but I sure love this one! It's super soft and cuddly. I may have taken a nap or two with it while visiting my Mom.
In addition to the photo shoot here, I took quite a few pictures of other quilts in my Dad's backyard. I will email those to my sister right now, so she should have them up on her blog
right away soon.
Do you take your quilts out on a photo expedition?
Where is the most unique spot you've encountered for photographing quilts?
