I have been working on my Highway 10 Designs City Slicker quilt for a while now using my left over 2 1/2” batik strips from jelly rolls I didn’t use in projects. The light background is also batik scraps and it was a great way to use up ends of yardage in my stash of fabrics I really liked. I quilted it with Allium pantograph and used Quilters Dream Blend batting.
I went for a drive up to Clearwater Lake to take pictures yesterday, it is about 40km drive on an icy gravel road so not something I can do all the time! But it was nice to get some lake pictures with my quilt. I also discovered an ice road across the lake so I think I’ll have to check that out this winter as it was plowed very wide and in great shape. As you can see by that blue sky it is still very cold here, –37’c this morning!
I finally got a chance to play with my Christmas present this week!
It is a photography backdrop stand and a set of lights! I still have a lot to learn about using the lights but I have been having fun playing! I think I need to have both lights on one side to show off the quilting texture and I do have the umbrellas to defuse the light a bit but I’ll figure it out this winter.
I get a great straight on shot and the tungsten filter on the light give the photo true colour but..
..nothing beats outdoor lighting!
