I think I am falling in love again -- with my old Kodak camera. I pulled it out a couple of days ago and stuck some new batteries in it. It still works like a champ. It's the first digital camera I had and its been around since 2003 I believe. It's smaller then the Nikon DSLR that I have and, thus, much easier to carry along wherever I go.
I'm working on a signature quilt block and you'd think one measly block would be a snap. Wrong!! I used EQ7 to print out the cutting directions for the block, but no sewing instruction. How hard could it be, right? I've made a few quilts in my time, I can do this.
Oh, me, how wrong I was! It's not obvious in this picture, but that mitered corner looks awful!!! Yes, I have taken it apart, recut the blue fabric and redone it. To no avail. And we won't even talk about that point not matching up. I can live with that one, but that rumply corner will not work. The bad thing is that I was given only a 10 inch square of the white muslin which MUST be used for the signature portion of the block. Now that I've whacked it up, I have to find either find another pattern that I can use the remaining white fabric in, or yell for help in fixing that corner.
It hurt my heart to cut a two inch square out of those nine fabrics to make the center, but it looks so pretty!!
And since I've cut my pretties, I want to use them!!
Y'all take care.
