Backdrop for photographing a quilt

Here is an art quilt that I recently completed for a black and white exhibit being put on by Quilts on the Wall. I have it hanging here, ready to be photographed. I have an area in my studio room where I can hang a black or a white fabric as a backdrop for a quilt. I then put a rod through the quilt sleeve and hang it in front of the drape. I used the black drape here because I knew the exhibit would be hung against black and wanted to see how it would look. I ended up painting my wooded rod black so it blended with the fabric before photographing this quilt.
