@ post#6: That is a really nice inviting photo and a very cool quilt. Not every pic has to be straight hung. The way you draped the quilt is really nice. No sight of a bathroom anywhere!

As you continue to expand your collection you will develope your very own style. Each quilt will become part of its very own vignette.

EDIT: @ post#9. Cute!

I've hung mine off the second floor balcony. And put them on the bed. And spread out on the floor, and stood on something high to photograph them. Also I've taken pictures in quilt shows.

I like to display my quilts on a chair by our backyard pond. Unfortunately, I can't use this setting in the winter.


I love the other pictures. Great idea for a topic.

I do all my photos of all my quilts from my own clothes line. Like the look as well as my own house and yard in the background. Makes it really a part of me and my home.

I use one of those portable hanging lights that mechanics use if there is not enough light on the day I want to snap pics'.

That is such a gorgeous quilt! The colours are so autumnal (fall - I'm in the UK). I've not yet photographed anything I've made (!) but I studied photography at college and an important thing is to be prepared to experiment with lighting, especially as different digital cameras can make colours look slightly different. Close-ups can look good too, I think.
