Here is it April 29 and I just realized that I never did a post on one of my most epic quilts ever, Kaleidoskop, photographed with an equally epic car, a gorgeous 1937 Ford.
This quilt was the last one to be photographed for the calendar and I knew that the vehicle choice and backdrop needed to be stellar. For years, I have passed this house on the way to see my good friend, Dotty. What I didn't know for a long time was that the owners were also collectors of classic vehicles. Dotty approached them with my calendar idea and they said I was welcome to not only use one of their cars but also photograph in front of their beautiful home with the circular driveway.
Our first choice was this beautiful 1938 Babe Ruth Nash.
However, the brakes were not working on the day we chose to photograph. The owners offered to roll it out into the driveway but that made me really nervous. So instead we decided on the Ford. Actually, I think the gorgeous deep red was a better backdrop for the quilt and the home.
