Sew Saturday ~ SSMQG Field Trip

This past summer our guild took a field trip to the lawn of the state capitol in Olympia, WA to enjoy the outdoors and learn how to take better pictures of our quilts.  I'm pretty sure this will become an annual tradition.  It was fun to meet in a new location, and the ground of the capitol turned out to be a beautiful place to capture our quilts in a unique light.

Cecile, our president, revealed our new guild banner to be displayed at meetings, the county fair, sew-ins, arts walk and more.

Some of us really got into the art of photography.  Using props like trees and hedges, benches and steps. Meagan even got on the ground to get a better angle of her quilt.

Grandma's quilt was almost done.  I had just finished the quilting and needed to attach the binding.  I was leaving the next day to fly down and see her because she had taken a turn for the worse.  My plan was to take the quilt with me and finish the binding on the flight and while I was down there.

I loved this park bench as a prop.  I'll definitely be going back here to take more pictures of my finished quilts.

This was one of my favorite pictures.  Kara on the steps of the capital building, sitting on her quilt with the setting sun shining on her.

This picture of grandma's quilt with the capitol in the background is pretty special too.  :)
