I have been trying to figure out how to sell quilts on Etsy. We have sold a few rag quilts, but no pieced quilts yet. I decided to make two baby quilts, one pieced and one rag out of the same fabric. I chose the owls and jacks from Ten Little Things. Both quilts are relatively simple and have the same green flannel for the back.
Owls seem to be a popular item for babies right now. Here are pictures of the rag quilt that is finished. The pieced quilt top is finished and basted and waiting to be quilted. I was going to show a comparison shot, but I guess I didn't take a picture and I am too lazy to go take one. I guess another post about that one. This one will be added to our Etsy store in the next few days.
How do you take your pictures for your blog or online store? Do you have a photo booth, a special stand for hanging quilts, have someone hold them up or what? Do you use special lights? I would appreciate suggestions, especially ones that won't cost a fortune. We have a pretty good camera, a tripod somewhere, editing software, but haven't had much luck with inside pictures other than closeups or folded quilts.
There is over a foot of snow on the ground at our house and the high tomorrow is 14 degrees Fahrenheit. Outside pictures are out until it warms to at least freezing. I already work out in the cold, so I don't necessary want to go out in it anymore than I have to.
