Would you like to make quilts inspired by your own photos, but don’t know where to begin? Stein will show you how to find subjects that inspire you, what makes one photo better than another, and simple ways to improve your skills with a camera. Learn why your ability to tell a story is more important than the cost of your equipment, and why enthusiasm for your subject is your strongest ally.
