Cindy's Landmark Quilt from Night Owl Quilting

Cindy made this neutral and modern version of the Landmark Quilt by The Blanket Statement.  Cindy selected the Arrowful pantograph and I love the little bit of movement it adds.  We opted for a cream colored thread that blended into the background to not distract from the pattern.  The quilting always shows up so wonderfully on the cozy fireside backing.

I tried a new photo location in town that I hadn't really checked out before.  We also used a new tool....

This is Nolan, the quilt husband/quilt holder who never complains, even when conditions are less than optimal ...

Quilt Photography from The Quilt Yarn

I have had to spent some time re-visiting my new Camera manual. I have a smallish Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ90. While you can just point and shoot, I have become increasingly confused about all the features that this camera has to offer. In addition, I have little knowledge about photography and what is involved. Reading about it is like learning a new language which is made complicated (being a migrant) as I do not have the English words for some of what they are talking about. I very rarely use the dictionary and rely on picking up the meaning of words ...

8 tips for better quilt photography and it includes my secret weapon that will make every photo pop!

Camera Equipment

You don’t need a fancy camera to take good pictures. I have a DSLR camera (Canon Rebel T5i) that was my main camera for taking pictures for my blog. Lately, however, I’ve been using my iPhone to take most of my pictures. Why? Simply because it’s ...

A Finish from The Quilt Yarn

Finished my little quilt with a jazzy striped binding.

Father Christmas brought me a new camera, so I am trialing taking photos at the moment. I so struggle with this, as I was used to my old camera. For the last 6 months I have been taking pictures with either my Iphone or the Ipad as my trusted Nikon gave up its ghost...I know that lots of people do this, but I struggled with that big time, so decided to go for a new camera. Was looking for something fairly basic but with the popularity of the Iphones as ...

A Quilt for Mike from Kim Hanson Quilts

Good day everyone. Thanks ever so much for joining us. I appreciate all the new subscribers that have come on board recently.

Five years ago, my thirty-something son asked me to make him a quilt. I was a little taken aback. . . he had never seemed very interested in my quilting. I put Mike off for awhile; but he asked me again.

So I began to go through my fabric stash in an attempt to figure out what fabrics I could use for his project. Mainly, kid-themed fabrics dominate my stash, along with florals and bright feminine-styled fabrics. Finding something that ...

Riley Park – My Very Favourite Place from Kim Hanson Quilts

There’s no place in Calgary like Riley Park. It’s where I used to play as a kid. It’s where I grew from a child, to a teenager. Although the park is a little different now than it used to be, it’s still filled with memories at every turn.

Spring and summer bring the park to life; green grass, a playground full of noisy children and 50+ year old trees show us the best part of nature.

My granddaughter and I went to the park last week. We ended up playing a camera game she came up ...

My hope is by the time I’ve written this letter to you and BLOCK arrives at your home, that life will have returned to normal. My hope is the sun will be shining outside your window… you’ll be free to gather with friends and family… you’ll feel comfortable greeting neighbors and walking the dog again, and a trip to the beach might be just around the corner. It’s hard to imagine after weeks of being separated from loved ones and anxiously watching the television, but I have great hope that we’ll make it through…many ...
