The best place for quilt photos in Savannah, GA

by Nicole

Life has been keeping me busy. But I did take some time last week to head to QuiltCon. I bought my City Park Quilt with me to finish the binding during the 5 and a half hour car ride from North Carolina.

After stitching the binding, I decided there was no better place to take photos of the finished quilt than in one of Savannah’s beautiful parks. Since it was my first time to Savannah, I had no idea which park to pick. I was going to pick a random park, but luckily I was with friends who knew the best spot for quilt photos: Forsyth Park.

Here is a photo outside of the Fragrant Garden.

I draped the quilt over the railing to get close up shots.


The paisley quilting motif gave the quilt a lovely texture.

And since the park had so many benches, I used one as a prop for the quilt. One of my friends, Melissa from blustitch, agreed to be a model for the photo.


Doesn’t she look fantastic with the quilt?!?


These photos will always remind me of QuiltCon, Savannah and good times with friends.

Your fabric choices are stunning. I rarely use solids but I may have to give them another try. Can you share what fabrics you used or where to look for them? The depth of color is so appealing. Thanks.

Thanks, Camille! Solids can be fun! There are about 20 different fabrics in the quilt – all Kona cottons – that I received in a kit. Many fabric stores carry Kona cottons. This color scheme is an analogous set of blues, greens, and purples – any of the Konas in blues, greens, and purples will work. Have fun!
