My Other Passion

As you may tell from how the frequency of my posts and tutorials have declined, my other long-time passion has taken over a bit.  I got the opportunity to visit Alaska in June of this year and in the process of being excited about taking pictures of that beautiful state, my somewhat dormant passion for photography resurfaced (click on the photo to see it larger).

Reflections on Otter Lake-1

So I joined a local photography club to help pull me out of the house and give me inspiration.  I also decided I would start putting a portfolio together and offer photos for sale.  Right now my interests are very diverse, but I think I will soon land on subject matter and/or techniques that will become my personal style.  I will definitely be seeking out opportunities to add photos of quilts I discover whether at a quilt show, antique malls, flea markets, wherever, to my blog.  I also plan on doing a series of photographs on “hand-made” items to add to my portfolio.

The photos below are of some antique quilts I recently came across while wandering through an antique mall.Antique Quilt-1

3 Quilts-1

So if you have an interest in looking at what I have on my photography website, just click on the link I’ve added to the sidebar of this blog.  If you would like to purchase something on that site I have made a special 20% off discount coupon code on the price of a print for my followers to use.  Just join the e-mail list on my photography website and I’ll send you a coupon.  This is not applied to any frames, etc. if chosen.  Just the print itself.

When you click on one of the images on the site it will show you the different options for printing and the prices.  Thanks in advance, even if you just visit to take a look!  I’ll be adding a lot of new photos in the coming weeks.

Right now I’m in the process of writing a tutorial on how to make a quick, fun, scrappy four patch baby quilt (which of course can be used for any size quilt by adding more four patches).  Look for that to be posted within the next two weeks.
