Good Morning, Quilters!

I’m off to St. Louis to kiss, kiss, kiss my new grandson, Louis!  

I’m a little nervous about being away from my sewing machine for so long–does anyone else feel that way ever?  I’ll have plenty to keep me entertained…but sometimes sewing is the perfect “wind down” at the end of the day–so is rocking a baby, of course!

THE INBOX QUILT SHOW

I thought this would be a great opportunity to show of YOUR quilts!

Do YOU have a quilt with a motif from The Inbox Jaunt you’d like to share?  Please send your photos to lckennedy@hotmail.com for our first ever Inbox Quilt Show!  

PHOTOGRAPHING YOUR QUILT

Use your camera or cellphone to take a photo.  Carefully consider the lighting on your quilting.  Photographing your quilt outdoors on a cloudy day is ideal.    Avoid shadows if possible.  Top down photos like the quilt photo above–often show the motifs well.  Another option is to photograph your quilt at a 45 degree angle to highlight the quilting line.    Just do your best and don’t fret!  We’d love to see your work!

THE TENNIS QUILT

The Tennis Quilt above was stitched by reader, Lynn Brazen.  She used the horizontal composition she learned stitching  the “Sailboat Sampler Quilt-a-Long”.   Learn more about compositional styles in my Craftsy video, Divide and Conquer –a great value at $19.99 HERE!

Lynn did a great job personalizing her quilt by designing a racket and ball for a friend who plays tennis.  LOVE, LOVE, love, love it Lynn!  Thanks for sharing!
