Showcasing Your Work
Quilting is an art. And the choices in making a quilt can be tough.
Choosing the right fabrics.
Deciding what pattern to use.
Cutting and piecing with precision.
Carefully and thoroughly basting your quilt.
Choosing and executing a fabulous quilting design.
Adding the label and binding is like an artist signing their work.
But the last step in this art form? It’s all about presentation.
And just like all of the other steps, presentation takes practice to get it right.
Photographing your quilt will take a lot of hard work. Learning what works and what doesn’t.
Here are some examples of my hard learned experiences.
Tip One: Indoor lighting bad. Outdoor lighting good.
Tip Two: Staging your photo shoot.
Tip Three: Looking for a great backdrop. Without the frame and helper.
Tip Four: Experiment with layout and Use of props.
Tip Five: Take lots and lots of pictures in lots and lots of different settings.
Experience and practice.
Just like all the other steps in quilting, the showcasing of your work is a tough job.
But so worth the extra effort!
