After reading the blog post of OPQuilt.com HERE, I knew I had to get this as my Christmas present. I must thank Elizabeth for all the legwork to find a great stand for photographing quilts! I don't really have a place or a set-up to get a good straight-on photo of my quilts. I am super excited to start using this.
I set this up very easily today. It is light-weight and easy to carry in its case which holds all the pieces in their place.
I did purchase 6 more clips, so I have 8 (for those large bed quilt photos that have always been so hard to get).
The rods are aluminum, so my idea of using my small magnetic level didn't work out; but I decided to put it in the case anyway.
I found some references to taking good quilt photographs that I will read in the next few days. One thing I have heard for a few years is that taking photos straight-on is the best way to show our quilts, especially for competition photos.
Have a great start to your New Year sewing!
