Two Tip Tuesday – photos and bindings

After finishing the “Sea Glass” version of R-W-B Boise, I wanted some good photos of the quilt.  The quilt was a present for my step daughter and it was staying in south Florida.  I wanted a beach picture!  So, one morning I headed to the beach.  It was a very windy day and very difficult to get a photo.  I did what I could to get some shots.  I’ll put a few below!

I love the colors of the sea!  It is an unending inspiration for color choices.

One tip for today, is a don’t when it comes to taking photos of quilts…

#1- don’t take photos on a windy day!  It is difficult to keep the quilt in place.

Tomorrow night I will be giving a lecture and trunk show to one of the local guilds I belong to.  My lecture is ” Binding Aren’t Boring, They’re BRILLIANT!”  Some of my samples are ready to go, along with a favorite reference book, Happy Endings by Mimi Dietrich.

Bindings Are BRILLIANT

I look forward to sharing tips and insight to better bindings.  I will also be doing a workshop on my “Four” Dinner…or any other meal! Placemats.  With their back to front bindings, the placemats are a great way to learn a new binding application!  The back to front method can be used to make napkins!  I’ve made a couple samples, shown below.
