As I mentioned in my earlier post, I am disturbed by the dismal photographic results of my quilt, my Rain Forest Canopy. It turned out so well. It was pretty. I was pleased at the results, that is until I saw the photos. How could an attractive quilt look so unattractive in photos of it? I’m frustrated because it
is a cool quilt, interesting, great colors pretty, such dazzling glittery threads. but you sure can’t tell from the photos. I have taken a few more photos and done a few tweaks. It hasI thought this one was a cool looking quilt, [ No false modesty here, ha,] but if i don’t like the quilts I am making, why would I expect anyone else to? If I can’t offer work that I’m proud of, why bother at all?
If I sound like I’m patting myself on the back a wee bit too much, sorry, I can think of no other way to convey the difference between the actual quilt and the picture of the quilt. I made a list
I’ll describe what I think are it’s best points, that photos don’t show very well.
Here’s my list:
#1-The color, love those blues and orange reds together, a classic great combo.
#2-The design. The design is obviously an abstract,. I realize that abstracts aren’t everyone’s cup of
tea, but I love them. I think it turned out to be a cool abstract.
#3- I love the threads I used, for my abstract quilting, The way they made my quilting pop. they are some of the best I’ve found, what a difference good thread makes.These show with a rich, saturated appearance.
There is a lot more I would like to say here about thread, but my posts are already to long. So I’ll save that
for another post in a few days, come back then, if you’e like some thread insight from a fiber
artist, I’ve used many different threads, kinds and brands, I’ve have found my favorites and will share that, as well as why I personally feel that way.
So check back in a few days.
