    I'm thinking of trying to get a quilt in a judged show, just for the experience. Before you are accepted, you must submit a picture of the full quilt, and a close-up. What's the best way to do this? Laid out on the floor, hanging, color of the background, laid over a couch, etc. I've tried to get a good shot a couple of times by hanging the quilt against my white closet door, but it doesn't seem to hang "flat"; or maybe it's just not flat ;)
    Sorry for the flurry of posts lately; I feel like I'm getting so many questions answered! How is it I haven't found this forum before now? Thanks!

    Here is a start... good info here. I've tried all of the methods you mentioned, I hang mine from a big archway between my LR & DR and use a tripod or something to set the camera on to keep it still and I don't use a flash. Just lighting behind me. I'm pretty amature but it works for me. Good luck.

    The most important thing is to have the quilt hung properly so it is straight and flat. I bought a quilt stand it is has been a time saver and used much more then I ever thought I'd use it.
