Campout Quilt

It's been a while since I've posted anything. I actually forgot that I created this blog!  I decided I wanted a new blog, signed in and wha-la!  Already done!  
In reviewing my two year old posts, I realize I promised more quilt pictures!  I have another blog that I posted the full quilt photoshoot experience on.  ( 
After viewing so many quilt blogs, I had realized my photographs needed a good background setting.  Just spreading them on the bed was not showcasing them. 
With this goal in mind, my husband and I ventured out in search of a place that held possibility.  I remembered a farm that has been deserted; I had been there with my grandmother as a child, and we had driven by it recently.  The place just glows with the love of the people who had once occupied it.   
With a basket of temporarily repossessed quilts and my husband's iPad, we headed to that farm.  My husband played photographer (as I stood behind him looking at the iPad screen) and helped me hang the quilts. It was a great day! And we took more pictures than I am posting here, but didn't want to overwhelm.  
I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoy seeing everyone else's creations!  Feel free to leave a comment.  I'd love to hear from you!
