Spring Blogger's Quilt Festival -

“Windmill Quilt”
January 2013
60″ x 60″
Machine pieced
Home machine quilted (FMQ) by myself
Quilt Photographers category

It’s the first time I participate in the festival. As a first quilt, I decided to add my Windmill quilt to the Quilt Photographers category. I did this quilt for the Madrona Road Challenge organized by The Modern Quilt Guild. If you want to know a little more about this quilt, read these posts: here and here.

Below is a picture of it after piecing the top. It is one of my favorite pictures I took in the past year. And it is the reason I decided to submit this quilt in the Quilters Photography category. It was taken from the back. I just love the sunlight that we see coming through. It really shows how the quilt was pieced.

Finally, here is a little close-up showing the quilting lines.

For me, taking a photography is part of the creative process in making a quilt or other sewing projects. It is the part I get to share it with you! And I really enjoy taking the time to make a setup for featuring it. I have a good reflex camera, but besides that I don’t have a lot of equipment. Until now, I took most of my photos at my place. In the future, I definitely want to go out more to find some locations that would offer great setup for taking quilts photography.

    I love that quilt! And I love how many people who participated in that challenge were inspired by that herringbone print…

    Lovely photography!

      Thank you so much. For this, I used the fat-eights from the Madrona Road collection provided by Michael Miller for the challenge organized by the MQG. For the negative space, I used some Kona in Medium Gray. I had fun designing this quilt.
