|Set up for photographing larger quilts. Hang the quilt horizontally and rotate the picture so the quilt is vertical.|

By the way, Quilt University is closing come this December. It's founder, Carol Taylor, passed away this past winter and her husband made a valiant effort to continue in her shoes, but found it to be too much.
This past month, I repeated the class I took last fall, Inspired to Design. I was surprised at how much easier it was for me the second time around. Experience does count for something! Elizabeth Barton teaches this course. She now has a book out on that topic, which is excellent. You can order it from her -( check her blog). Her blog, which is interesting to read. Lots of thought provoking observations.
I got my piece all sewn up. It is resting on the design wall as I teach myself a some basic machine quilting tricks. ( I've never done that!)

School is over for me and I'll be on my way to Maine, soon. I'll post once more, before I leave.
