I went to visit my dad in Nevada a couple days ago. There was some old snow on the ground and since I admire many of the "quilts in the snow" shots that bloggers post and there was a quilt I made in 2011 for my dad's birthday that I hadn't photographed, I figured it was a good opportunity to try it out!
|I had just read a photography tutorial by Ann at Play Crafts and she said that indirect light is helpful in getting desired results. Keep in mind that this is my first try and I need a lot more practice.|
|My first quilt that I free motioned quilted on a small machine. I heavily quilted around the animals to made them pop up.|
|If the wrinkles weren't there, I think it would look good in the direct light in this case. The harshness of the shadows highlights the quilting. I hope this is not ghastly in the more trained quilter's eye.|
|There is an owl sitting there so he got in the picture too!|
|Since Dad is a cowboy, I made a cowboy boot block.|
