You Did WHAT With Your Quilt?

I understand and respect the many reasons for 
flat, full size photographs of finished quilts.  

However, I see my quilts as multi-dimensional creations 
and flat, full size photographs are just that.  

Flat and formal.

Because nearly all of my quilts are meant to be used and enjoyed 
(vs. art quilts or quilts for show/display)
choosing fabrics for the backs that relate to the fronts 
(scrappy or otherwise) is very important to me.

I also choose my binding fabrics to 
visually connect the front and back of each quilt.  

By photographing my finished quilts outdoors 
using benches, rock walls, clotheslines, a wide variety of fences, 
iron railings, tree branches, fishing piers, and the like, 
I am able to capture each quilt’s personality, 
its quilted textures, 
and pleasing glimpses of its fabrics.

I realize this type of casual quilt photo 
is not for everyone, 
but seeing my quilts outdoors 
interacting with their surroundings 
truly makes me happy.
