Tips for Taking Great Photos Of Your Quilt


You can take great photos of your quilts with your digital camera.

  • Taking photos outside (especially on a hazy day) is best. But you can experiment with your flash or set up near a window.
  • Take a shot “straight on” to get the whole quilt. It’s hard to see a quilt on a bed.
  • Take one or more close-ups too.

The technical stuff is incredibly easy.

  • Look at the “Quality” settings on your camera. 
  • Choose: Email or Website or UGA or 640 x 480. Those are all the same (the lowest resolution).

But if you have large files, they can easily be made email-friendly. With a few clicks on Photoshop, you’re done.

Depends on the propose of the photos, you might need to resize them for upload or online submission.

After the proper documentation of the quilt is done, you can display the quilt, store it, sell it, upload the photos to websites/quilter communities or submit to a craft show for more exposure.
