Have you ever thought of using your garage door as a design wall when you want to take photos? The other day I went out and scrubbed the garage door and made sure I got all the icky dead bugs and things off of it before I hung my quilts on it.
I was actually taking photos of all of my quilts that are ready to send off to Island Batik for Fall Quilt Market. It will be a long time before I see them again so I had to make sure I took plenty of photos.
Here is a little sneak peek of them!
Okay, back to photographing and using garage doors. My garage door is metal…..if yours is wood….this won’t work. You will need some heavy duty magnets that are strong enough to hold even a quilt. I bought several different sizes years ago that had hooks on them and removed the hook. The larger magnet works the best.
All of the quilts that I make for Island Batik have a sleeve on the back and I slip 3 magnets inside that so nothing shows on the front. The magnets are very, very strong. Since I can’t show one of my new Island Batik quilts I pulled out my Summer Flowers quilt which is 44 x 60 so you could see how the magnets really hold it well. Be careful removing the magnets from your quilt……I dropped one and when it hit the concrete it cracked.
Below is a baby quilt that I just finished piecing which is made from batiks and also regular quilting fabrics. I enjoy combining them.
