And I am so proud.
Mom bound it in 8 hours and 15 minutes. I’m pleased with how the quilting looks now that I’ve stepped back from it. The quilting is essentially invisible since I only quilted in the black areas, with black thread. There are a number of spots where you see the thread travelling across the corner of a colored triangle, but from five feet away they’re unnoticeable. I tried taking pictures of the quilting, but it’s just too difficult to see.
In other news, I bought a new camera yesterday! I’ve been struggling with my old one, and I had nearly $100 in Staples rewards, plus a 20% off coupon, so I picked up this camera for just $48 and change.
It’s nothing fancy, but it’s a big step up from the old camera. One feature I know I’ll be using a lot is the black & white setting. Now I don’t even have to take a picture of the fabrics to see values – I can just set it to black & white and look at the view screen. Much faster!
Now I have to make a case for it. I took it to work today in a sock.
