Continuing the recap from my time in Greenville, South Carolina… To unwind together on Saturday evening after a full day of teaching (me) and sewing (Cheryl), we watched Christopher (The Tattooed Quilter)’s recent webinar for the MQG: Perfecting the Perfect Flat Lay (note that the webinar link only works if you are an MQG member and logged into the MQG website). On Monday morning, we put what we learned to the test. Cheryl had some objects to photograph and I had this beautiful array of solids:
Earlier this year, the local Coats and Clark store to Cheryl had their final closeout sale and she purchased many bolts of fabric. She generously allowed me to cut off a few yards from the fabric that spoke to me… and is it really any surprise that I was drawn to the solids she had on hand (this is a mixture of FreeSpirit Solids and Kaffe Shot Cotton)?
One thing I learned about the flat lay shots: it’s easier when you are working with smaller objects!
