Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2013: Quilt Photographer Category
I am pretty proud of this picture I took of the boy version of the Super Kids quilt I made this summer. A few years ago I worked as an outpatient therapist and drove through Lowell, MA quite often, passing these awesome comic book murals at Command D's. When I had the opportunity to make a few quilts for Ann Kelle designs, I knew this would be one of the most fun places to snap some pictures of my creations. Superman is pointing to my quilt guys!
I attached a sleeve to the top of the quilt and we bought a cheap closet rod at Home Depot and strung it through the sleeve. Luckily my husband is fairly tall and he was able to hold it up for the picture. One of the store's workers came by when we were taking photos and he was really excited about what we were doing (the store had been closed when we got there.) I was glad he wasn't angry - it's always best to ask permission when taking pictures on another's property of course.
I am entering this into the Quilt Photographer Category at Amy's Creative Side for the Fall Blogger's Quilt Festival. Go and check out the other fun quilts and photos for that category here.
Bytheway, both of my Super Kids quilts were featured this weekend at Quilt Market. If you spot a picture of them on anyone's Quilt Market blog posts, please let me know.
