Cambridge Quilters

I've spent the day photographing quilts, made by the group of which Harriet is a member. The quilts themselves were made for display at the Breast Unit, Addenbrooke's Hospital. There are 8 quilts in total: 7 based on the colours of the rainbow; the 8th in pink, representing the colour of the Addenbrooke's breast cancer campaign.

The aim is to make postcards which can be sold in order to raise money, and for other publicity purposes. The main problems with photographing large quilts are colour matching and getting even lighting over such a large area. What follows is a selection of whole quilts and close-ups.
