Photo Shoot at Stoney's

Yesterday was such a beautiful day here in Virginia Beach. I had a few errands to run and thought I would first go to Stoney's outdoor produce market. It is always so gorgeous there in the fall. I had two quilts with me and hoped to do a little photo shoot to try and capture pictures for pattern covers. The lighting was perfect in the shade and they always have great props around. I really hope they don't mind me doing this. I always ask someone for permission and they are agreeable, but then others look at me like--what does she think she is doing? I hate to intrude on the property of others, but seriously, I get the best photos there! And I always buy stuff before I leave. I bought half a dozen pots of pansies for the front yard. They are lovely.





 This is so frustrating! Blogger doesn't want my photo to be right side up. But try and look at the cute accessories around this place.


While at Stoney's I met a fellow quilter. I didn't know her before, but she saw me with my quilt and stopped to talk. Her name is Tiffany McPherson. She used to own a quilt shop, The Velvet Thread, in Elizabeth City. I bet some of you know her. She was there with her husband and grandchildren. Grandmas just don't look like grandmas anymore! Sorry, this photo flipped also. Aargh!  Anyway, it's always nice to find a friend lurking in the pumpkins!



 Their pumpkins and squash are amazing, and all different kinds. I thought these paint spattered looking ones were cool.
Cute little gift shop within. A few old and weathered items for sale as well. My quilt, Old Soul, was arranged in several locations. It looks good with the fall items. Remember Old Soul from the spring edition of Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine? They have another project of mine coming up that I hope you will like! Maybe it is in the new issue that I am hoping to receive soon.

I have ordered covers for patterns for these quilts and they will be available soon!

What a fun place to go play :) Your quilts look so beautiful amongst the Mums and pumpkins. :) (You are so right, Grandmas just don't look like Grandmas any more)

An autumn produce market seems a great place for your photo shoot of your sweet quilts!

These photos are perfect for pattern sales and I think also notecards!

Marcie we love when you come to hang your art and enjoy our setting for your photo shoot of your beautiful quilts. Fall would not be complete at Stoney's if we didn't see you draping and laying your beauty amongst the heirloom pumpkins. Thankyou for your kind comments about Stoney's Produce on your blog. We do love the season of grateful abundance, and are happy to give you a backdrop anytime. Autumn Blessings to you Marcie.
