Giveaway: October/November 2012 Quilting Arts Magazine

posted in: Published | 22

Today the new Quilting Arts Magazine arrived in my mailbox. Inside is my article on how to photograph your own quilts in your own home with ordinary equipment.

I believe photography is an important part of quiltmaking. It is helpful during the quiltmaking process so you can audition various options, for instance. But I always tell people that a quilt isn’t done until it is labeled and photographed. I became convinced of this because I maintain the Lost Quilt Come Home website which displays lost and stolen quilts. For more than half of those quilts, the owner/maker does not have a photograph.

I have two copies of this magazine to give away! If you leave a comment below, I will draw a random number at 9 PM EST tomorrow, September 27.

    If I had that, I’d pass it on to my family photographer and maybe she would document my collection!

      Mary, I’m sure your family photographer already knows all these things! She took beautiful pictures of Amalya.
