Tale of Two Cities

I took one class at Quiltcon, a photography class taught by Kitty Wilkin and Michelle Bartholemew. It was a fabulous class--well organized, informative, packed with so much information--I learned so much. If you ever have a chance to take a class taught by them, sign up as soon as you can!!

I had brought along my Tale of Two Cities quilt, as Kitty was doing a lecture about making quilts to mark life moments, and this quilt was being included in her lecture (you can read about that at the end of this post). After class, we took it outside for a little photo session.

I had noticed this beautiful light fixture, with some of the paint that dripped down the side of the building. It was nearly the identical color to one of the fabrics in the quilt.



These two pictures were by far my favorites. I hope Kitty will send me the pictures she took. I would love to know what her experienced eyes focused on.
Quilt photography has become one of my favorite parts of quilting, and I hope 2018 sees me gaining more knowledge and experience in documenting the things I make.

  1. You always find such great places to photograph your quilts. The colors are perfect to highlight the pretty quilt.
