Custom Quilt Art : :

Quilt Art!

Today I'm so very excited to share with you a new offering from one of my favorite companies, Artifact Uprising, a company that truly cares about how much our type of work matters! Their mission is to breathe creativity, passion and community back into our stories and their products are as beautiful as their mission. At Artifact Uprising you'll find photobooks, postcards, calendars, prints, and beginning today, they've added beautiful custom framing to the list!

Whether you're photographing quilts to sell, or to share on your blog, Instagram, or Facebook, I always recommended taking the extra time to take a great photograph. Consider just the number of hours you've spent selecting the fabrics, deciding on a pattern, assembling each piece and then finishing it, don’t you agree that all your hard work and your gorgeous quilt deserves to be seen in the best way possible? For me, that means venturing outdoors to my favorite spots in Potter County. The untouched beauty of this part of Pennsylvania makes the mot spectacular backdrop! For others, that might mean finding the room with the best natural lighting right at home. Either way, it's about honoring your work with a thoughtful photograph.

When Artifact Uprising reached out offering to print and frame one of my quilt photos, I couldn't pass it up! It arrived just the other day ready to hang, and I love it so much! Like their other products, the quality is stunning and immediately has become such an amazing treasure!

Whether you decide to treat yourself or just keep these personalized wall art options in mind for gift-giving, I just had to share this beautiful idea. I have a feeling this first framed photo of ours is the beginning of a new collection!

  1. Great way to keep a record of quilts made, thanks. What type of camera do you recommend?

    1. I have Canon EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR, an older model but it does the trick! I'd love to upgrade since the newer Rebels are so much better, but it's never in the budget. Hopefully soon!

  2. I never thought of framing the pictures I take of my quilts to use as wall art. Wonderful idea.
    Thank you for the inspiration.

  3. Your photo does look spectacular framed! I enjoyed reading your thoughts on photographing. I have never thought about the pictures I take of my finished quilt as anything more than a way to keep track of what I have done. You are right in that we should consider all of the time we spend with each step of the quilt process, the photo should have just as an important of a role. Thank you for sharing and I hope that you have a wonderful creative day!

  4. What are your tips for laying our quilts out in nature? I'm always concerned with getting them dirty or having them catch on a nail or something like that.

  5. Your work is beautiful and refreshing. I totally agree that a stunning photo is the correct way to honor all that hard work. I have a high end Nikon and a little point and shoot with a Leica lens, the little one is the best! I need to work on my skills and improve my photo's, you inspire me.

  7. I love this quilt, in fact I think it is my favorite quilt of yours. It is such a stunner. I don't suppose you would consider writing up a pattern. I for one would definitely purchase it.
