Daylight photos.......

My daughter took photos of a few of my quilts with the natural daylight from the east window. Most of the photos on my blog are taken in the basement with daylight fluorescent bulbs.  The ''real" daylight is so much better for true color and value changes.  This is the Trip Around the World I finished in January.  You can check back here as to how it looks with daylight bulbs.
Here is another one which shows the richness of the colors of the plaids and stripes.  I finished it in March.

My daughter made the mosaic tile framed mirror on the wall behind me.
The redbuds are in full bloom now.









The cranesbill has its first flower. I have 3 different varieties of it and this is the earliest bloomer.






I dug up some hostas to share.  There are 6 plants in that box.

I took a few more garden photos that I will show tomorrow.

Thanks for sharing the photos of quilts and your yard. I enjoy working in the yard, too.

Glad you showed the quilts in true color, they are very rich in color, just beautiful.

Wow! I'm glad you shared those photos. The colors are so much more vibrant and beautiful. The light really makes a world of difference.

I always love seeing what's blooming in your garden, too. Enjoy today's weather. It sounds like we will have rain and more rain coming in.

Good morning Wanda....It was good to get a visit from you, if only an online one, and Mother Nature always supplies us with the ability to show our creations in all their natural and glorious color. Enjoy this glorious day we've been promised.

Beautiful quilts- and beautiful spring!

I love that plaid quilt - the colors are just great!

The Joyful Quilter said...

Wow!! What a different REAL daylight makes!! Those quilts really shine.

Gene Black said...

I wish I were close by. Something (chipmunks I think) ate all of my hostas.

Mary said...

The natural light does make a difference!

Melinda Hirsch said...

Wow--fabulous colors on those quilts. Love how they look in daylight.

Linda Swanekamp said...

The colors are so rich and inviting in the daylight. Both of them are gorgeous. Do you have purple walls? Hope to get to some gardening this week.

I knew the plaids were beautiful - but today's photo really shows that to the world. Gorgeous! (our hostas need to be divided again - our older son wants some for his front yard)

Marle said...

I love the one with circles!

Alice Turcotte said...

Big difference with the natural lighting. Gorgeous quilts.

The colors are a bit richer and deeper with the natural light. Those are both beautiful quilts!

Elaine/Muddling Through said...

I thought those quilts were beautiful before, but now - wow! Quite a difference!

Our redbud has finished blooming a while back and is now fully leafed out. Today - slow rain. I love it.

Wanda's Wonderful World of Color ~ Those photos really show, like Night and Day difference with lighting. And your Redbud tree seemed to explode since last Fridays photo's of your back garden. Spring at your house is awesome.

What a difference the natural light makes to showing off the lovely colours in your quilts! I checked my plants last week - I can't see my Hostas regrowing - maybe the snails have got them already :(

Needled Mom said...

Those are just beautiful in both lights!

Cathi said...

Wow! The colours in those quilts are beautiful and rich! There is nothing like natural light for photographs. I love the second one - all that fabulous curved piecing is such a nice counterpoint to the lines in the fabrics.

margaret said...

such colourful and beautiful quilts. Wonder do you nit have problems with slugs with the hostas here they just love them!

Your Trip Around The World looks so bright in daylight, not always possible to get the best natural light source. Both beautiful quilts, my favourite is the TATW.

Kristin said...

Wow - these quilts do look much more vibrant and the colors more saturated in the natural light!

Oooo, yes, that natural daylight is much better, not to mention much healthier for you. I prefer sewing in it, but dear hubby doesn't like my machine on the dining room table, so my sewing room upstairs is very cramped (it's really a small bedroom with my 2 machines, a small pressing blanket and small cutting board.) My big cutting board is in the basement and although I can use lots of daylight bulbs down there, it's never quite as satisfying as real natural daylight for me. I do really like the contrasts in your Trip Around the World.
