As promised I'm returning to The Colours of Burano quilt that won the hand quilting award at the Loch Lomond Quilt Show in May. I spend the morning photographing all my recently finished quilts as today is about as good as it gets for photography purposes. It was bright, sometimes cloudy, sometimes sun, dry and with little wind (no wind is unheard of here in Scotland!).
Since we have the summer house I've nominated the back wall of that as my outdoor photography studio and it works well as it is relatively sheltered from wind by the summer house itself.
While I was taking the pictures my handy helper assisted in hanging up the quilts and he also took the opportunity to take my picture with his Hudl (hence the low quality of the images!). Here I am photographing Klimtesque, a quilt that has featured on this blog before.
I used a tripod and my Canon for the pictures although on the rough terrain I'm not that sure that the tripod really helped. The chickens were also watching me in action as you can see.
Don't forget that the 52 Journals will be on exhibition soon, starting the 23rd August till the 4th October 2014, at the Museum Room, Tweeddale Museum and Gallery, Chambers Institute, High Street, Peebles EH45 8AG. If you want to organize a group visit and hear me talk about the pieces just let me know and I can arrange it with the museum, subject to availability. Hope to see many of you there!
