don't get the quilt muddy!

Yesterday afternoon I was taking pictures of the first quilt I still can't show you. It seems like a quilt made with a fabric line called "A Walk in the Woods" should have pictures taken in the woods, doesn't it? We wound up using the trees in the back yard, but the big Douglas Fir has probably been here since this area was woods, so it counts!

The whole time we were outside, we were trying to keep the edges of the quilt out of the dirt. And we did manage it. (I wish I could say the same for the train of my wedding dress twenty years ago. I'm still afraid to take it out of the special magic wedding dress box to see how bad the damage is/was.)

Does everyone who takes pictures of quilts outside worry about getting them dirty?

All of those posts that everyone keeps writing about no-reply bloggers must be working -- this time the first winner I chose for my St. Patrick's Day giveaway had contact information!

The winner is Jill, who wrote:

I need to make a baby quilt and this would be perfect! Thanks for the chance.

Congratulations, Jill! And thanks to everyone who took time to enter.

Hiya Michele! I have grass or snow under my clothesline, but there was one February thaw that proved very muddy, so I postponed the photoshoot a day or two until it dried out a bit.

If I take photos outside, I usually do it on my front porch (with nice "rustic" boards!!) rather than on grass. If I'm doing whole quilts, it's on the clothes line, so dirt not really an issue (it has grass under it). Besides which, all my quilts are machine washable!!
