Diane/Random Thoughts...do or "di" posted Got Scrap?, showing off The Kitchen Sink Quilt, an awesome mix of scraps and orphan blocks, all bound up in binding scraps. And guys! Then Diane took her scrappy wonder to a SCRAP YARD for its photoshoot. Ok, why didn't we all think of that?!
I swear it was the same day that Jill/Pie Lady Quilts shared The Long Road, itself pieced in a creative, somewhat inorganic fashion. It only seemed appropriate for Jill to search out an industrial setting for her photoshoot, and in doing so, has the most delightful story to tell - one of a construction worker with a heart for quilts and a surprising connection to a quilting icon.

Both of these quilts, with their unique photoshoots and stories, left me with a happy heart and a smile, and I hope you click through to hear from the makers themselves. Personally, they led me to scroll through a bunch of my own quilt photoshoots. And though there's plenty I like, I think there's only one that fits in the 'double meaning' category. And that would be my City Sampler that I took to a city vista so I could get the downtown skyline in the photo. Still one of my favorite photos, and one of my most liked on Ig. Crazy.
I've created a Photoshoots Pinterest board for some of my very favorites - both mine and from others. I'd love to see your favorites - and if you have a double entendre, well all the better!
