You know I'm getting close to the pattern finish line when it's time to take pictures for the pattern cover. Mr. Joe and I headed out with quilt and camera in hand and drove around the Livermore wine country searching for an old barn. It looks like it's going to be a good harvest this year.....a Harvest of Hope.
Sometimes, serendipity happens, and a horse drawn carriage comes into the scene just when you are snapping a picture......and poses for the camera.......right by the red geraniums AND the quilt!
Mr. Joe assures me this piece of farm equipment is a seed spreader.......I was afraid it was a manure spreader!
I would love to set this table with a bountiful harvest dinner in the vineyard.
The vines are heavy with grapes......wine grapes.
A harvest collage.
I felt like I played "quilting hooky" yesterday with minimal time spent at the keyboard or sewing machine. It was such a gorgeous day to be out and about, enjoying the beauty of our own community. I can work on the pattern tomorrow.....or the next day.....and the day after that.
I love the pictures.....hubby and I got a few good chuckles about the manure spreader and outhouse.....love the harvest collage picture....ReplyDelete
Fantastic photo shoot. Harvest of Hope is a beautiful quilt.ReplyDelete
Love the Clydesdale...they're such a wonderful horse. Guess you should have been here...I could've provided you with the old weathered barn...a very vintage outhouse and manure spreaders of both the wheeled and four legged kind! Seriously...my dear...they're really all here! The Clampetts do exist!ReplyDelete
Stunning...both the setting and the quilt!ReplyDelete
What a fun day in the wine country ! I really love your Harvest Collage picture. Are you thinking of using that picture for the cover of your pattern ?ReplyDelete
I love the quilt on the barn. Such a great contrast.ReplyDelete
Every picture came out beautiful!ReplyDelete
Love the collage at the end of the piece, looks like you had a lovely day for photos.ReplyDelete
Yes, he was right - that was a seed spreader (we have one). They are all great photos but love the collage.ReplyDelete
What great photos. Which one is going on the cover?ReplyDelete
The best guilt!!!ReplyDelete
Those are great photo's. Sounds like the perfect day.ReplyDelete
Wow - what a day to be a quilt photographer! You two did a wonderful job! I hope you sipped a little wine along the way and let Zinnie drive home ;>)ReplyDelete
Wow Lynn! You create such beautiful quilts, just lovely! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I have added you to my favourites and will come drool over your pictures every chance I get. :)ReplyDelete
