    who has to do a major job of tidying a room before taking a picture of a quilt to post on this board?

    My bedroom has so much clutter (mostly quilting related but admittedly some other stuff) that you would be really distracted from seeing the only thing I want you to look at.

    No big deal just throw it on the floor and be creative with the angle of the picture you take!

    I think we all can relate! We have so much needed things for quilting, crafts and things for life in general! I can't work in an area that there is too much out in the open. I spend too much time looking for the things I need. I installed Ikea shelves in the closet and shelves in the room with glass doors where all my material is housed. But I have a problem of dropping everything I have in my hands (since there is an open space)and thinking I'll get to it later. I spend more time clearing off the table tops to work on and waisting to much precious time. It doesn't matter what your room looks like so long as it works for you! We understand and looking at the beautiful quilt is all we want! Don't let it bother you-just show us all the beautiful quilts! :D :D :D

    I normally take photos of my quilts on my sofa in the den and that's the cleanest room in the house.

    I don't care what's in the background. I'm just thrilled to see the quilt pics posted.

    Open the photo first in a photo manager and crop it. Spend that time making another one.

    That's what Photoshop is for! LOL. By the way it's also great for getting rid of double chins and improving bad hair days. Haha!

    I always consider the background, but I'm happy to "crop" the picture if necessary.

    I take my pics outside because I can't get far enough from them for a decent pic inside. Just too small an area.

    Just take a close up, or bring it outside and hang it over a rail. And most of us have something we'd prefer doesn't make it into the picture, so relax! You are not alone.
