We went on some back road on the edge of town and found this cute little white building. We took a few there....
right next were these awesome grain bins. I'm not sure why I didn't have a quilt photo taken in front of these.
Then we went down the road a bit and found a red barn. LOVE the horses in the background of this shot. :)
While we were about to get set up for the previous photo, a guy pulled up in his truck and asked if we were having car trouble. We explained that we were taking photos and we loved the red barn. He told us that his neighbor had a good red barn just up the road. (Don't you just love that???) He told us to go over and check it out.
Oh, my goodness! It was just absolutely perfect! Their whole yard was super cute. This tree had a little branch that was just waiting to hold a quilt. I may have to go and visit them again. :)
I also took my apple cake quilt out and got some fabulous photos of that as well, but I need to get some detail shots before I post that one. They turned out so fun, I can hardly wait to share them with you!
Sounds and looks like a great photo shoot Amanda Jean! Great quilt that is new to me.
What a fun afternoon - with some great shots! I have to get more adventurous with my photography and use something as a background besides my design wall - boring!
What a fun way to get some quilt pictures!!!
What fun !! And the quilts are beautiful
Lovely! I'm not usually a pastel kinda gal, but I LOVE this quilt! Happy Holidays!
Oh, what a lovely quilt, Amandajean! I love the pastels and the randomness of the piecing. So pretty! Can't wait for the pattern to come out!!
What a fun day! I LOVE that quilt! I need to start doing trips with my quilts! thanks for always inspiring me!
Sounds like a fun day...great pics of your beautiful quilt! Wish I had an awesome red barn ;)
How lucky to have a partner in crime to do a photo shoot! I love your grain bins and am laughing at the helpful passerby. He gave a great tip and permission to travel that way as well. :-)
This post made me laugh.
You can take me red barn hunting the next time you need a hand.
haa, I knew that I have seen that quilt before, that it wasn' t new. how could I remember.
it looks beautiful even in winter
thanks so much for your blog, and your almost daily posts! they always bring a smile to my face, especially today, on an extremly bad day!!! keep it up!!!
I always thougt pastel colours were not for me but I' loving this!!
Your photography field trip sounds like you had a lot of fun and got some great pics there too :)
Just love the second to last picture taken on the tree branch...looks straight out of a magazine!
Sounds like you guys had a great time. It is a gorgeous quilt!
Thank you for sharing all things quilty with us this year, I am truly inspired by your craftifness. Wishing you and your family a kind and gentle Christmas xo
What a great idea to have a quilt photo shoot they look great
What a wonderful pattern! I clicked the link to the mystery quilt and fell in love with the High Tide one even more! I admire your pattern writing skills. I am still sketching my quilts out on grid/lined paper. Will this one be in your new book????
the wuilt is beautiful and yes it makes semce to photo a bright cheery quilt in Dec when it is starting to get dreary and we need a little pick me up! (oh it would look AMAZING in the snow!!)
I have the perfect spot to take my next shot of a quilt too......but, like you, I will need a helper. Good thinking just driving around looking for great landscapes. I'm afraid I will be tromping through snow though by the time I get my next one done! LOL UGH!
What a fun 'photo shoot' Love the quilt!
Love the quilt pictures so nice. The backrounds are perfect. I will be in line to buy that pattern!
Love it - I can't wait for the pattern! Great choices for background too
That sounds like a fun photo shoot! At least there is green grass there.. Here it is all brown..no snow, no green..just brown! I love the metal milk jug in the background of the picture of the quilt on the tree~
Great location! You'll have to get to know them better. :-)
Love the shots! Especially the horse one but the tree has to be my favourite! Round here I'd just be standing in front of someone's boring looking house!!
Very pretty! You live in nice surroundings!
You always give me ideas. So inspiring!! Beautiful work. Thanks!!
Fun stuff! Love these new photos and hearing about the photo shoot adventures. Excited about the prospect of you sharing more patterns from your designs.
NICE pictures. :)
Lovely shots of your quilt! Looks like you live in a great place.
Thanks for your generous spirit in sharing so much. I hope you have a lovely Christmas Day and a safe and happy New Year.

I recognize that quilt from Sew Hip magazine as the Mystery quilt they had in some early issues.
I made one! I have the top pieced and now need to finish it up the rest of the way.
Quilt photos are great and you can never go wrong with a red barn.
I absolutely LOVE this quilt. So bright, colorful and cheery. My favorite type of quilt. I would love the details on it so I can make one myself one day.
Merry Christmas to you!
That quilt is pretty much the most perfect mix of colors I have ever seen.I love it so!
i wasn't quilting (or blog reading) in 2009. i'm so happy to get a peek at this lovely quilt now. the colors are just splendid!
Love the photos! I'm relieved you took the Apple Cake quilt out on the photo shoot...it's simply too pretty NOT to be photographed near a pretty barn!
It is always fun to read about your hunts for backgrounds. You make me appreciate my home more.
I am guessing you live in a suburb/city?
I am curious where those wire corn cribs are. My husband wants one beside his shop/barn for storing wood in. I keep looking for one to buy and move for him.
