|kennedy modeling my newest quilt|
Can you modernize Halloween or possibly the
celebration of Thanksgiving? Both Holidays are certainly the beginning
of the fall holiday season in the United States,
but neither holiday would be considered modern.
I love the season,
I love the colors
and I love the weather
during this time of year
I was inspired to sew.
I didn't know what project but I had a color palette in mind.
So I was looking back through my notebook of project sheets.
I have always
some candy corn and peanuts,
threw them in a bowl for a sewing snack and started
The working title for this quilt was Modern Fall. It was my excuse
to get to sew with
orange, grey, magenta and greens and a
natural grey pindot background
without having to worry
about the fabrics matching my house.
Whoa, wait a minute, did I give you the impression that
anything in my house matches?
It doesn't, eclectic to say the least.
My kids are kind of tired of helping me hold up quilts for pictures,
so I solicited some help from my niece, Kennedy.
She is interested in photography, so I held the quilts
and she took the pictures. We have pictures from all different angles.
There is something about clicking that shutter button multiple times so it
sounds like a professional photographer.
I think that only applies to fashion photography not quilts.
click, click, click
I think it was a test to see how long I could hold my
arms straight up over my head holding the quilt.
Enough with the quilt pictures.
My arms were tired.
It was time to change places,
I was behind the camera and she was in front.
My other niece Avery came home and helped "model" some
of the other quilts to
be shown in future posts.
Thank goodness they still like to help Aunt Izzy.
