Children Portrait Backgrounds Using Quilts or Digital Backdrops

Do you love colorful and fun backgrounds for children?

Then you’re going to love this post where I show you a simple and creative way to create unique portraits using quilts or digital backgrounds. Whichever you prefer.


After we recently created this Digital Creation for our club, (which we named “Whimsical Patchwork City”) I thought I would share how you can create a similar one using quilts.

That’s right…Quilts!

There are so many beautiful hand made quilts out there and no one is using them for photography backgrounds…YET! You can find a huge selection on Etsy or Zulili if you just do a quick search.

They range in price depending on how large and how detailed they are. I’ve seen unique designs range between $125 to $250 for good quality.

Photography Background Ideas

As usually I’m going to break down what you would need to create a similar image like we just created for our club.

Whimsical Patchwork City


You will need 3 components to create a similar children’s portrait like this example.

  • 1. Handmade Quilt at least 48 inches wide and 48 inches tall (Bigger The Better)
  • 2. Wood Flooring (Home Depot or Lowes)
  • 3. Old Antique Wagon (Garage Sales-Antique Stores)

That’s all you really need to recreate this portrait. You can buy a variety of quilts and keep creating unique sets to use for your clients over and over again.

I hope you can see that the possibilities are endless.

Think Different and Be Different :-)
