Who holds your quilts?

I love looking at everyone's beautiful quilts. However, I must admit I am equally amused by the quilt holders! You know, the husband, son, neighbor that holds the quilt high and at the same time tries to hide behind it :lol:
Sometimes all you see are bare feet & hands! If it's a woman those bare feet are on tippy toes.
So who holds your quilt? I have my hubby & adult son hold mine.

A big thanks to all you anonymous hands & feet we see everyday! Be sure to make them a quilt!

I just lay mine on the floor or fold it artistically on the sofa and then do the photo shoot.

Now Eddie has it going on with a pretty banister to put his quilts on to photograph them.

Mine go on the floor too :wink: There usually isn't anyone around when I want to get a picture taken. Maybe this summer I will put some of the neighbor kids to work :D:D:D

Pat usually holds mine and he generally gets his cute mug into the shot.

If I am at home, it is hubby or Sis. If I am at my Tuesday quilting group at church, it could be any one of about 7 ladies. It sure is good to have friends who will stand with their arms in the air so that you can get just the right shot of your masterpiece.

Most of the time it is my hubby holding the quilt. Sometimes it is one or two of my children, or my son's ex-girlfriend. I am always the one taking the picture and not holding the quilt.
