I’m losing confidence in my ability to take a decent photo

Posted by on January 26, 2010 in blocks | 8 comments

There’s a new photo of the Block Lotto banner quilt, now that it’s bound and all the quilting markings washed away. But It’s still got problems with perspective. One of these days I’ll get it right.

Grace Hopper "Helping"I even had some “help” today … though, when Grace Hopper came over to the quilt spread on the floor as I was on the ladder trying to get a nice square shot, I expected her to lay on it . . . not push it out of the way, as she did, and stretch out on the bare concrete floor and offer herself up as model ๐Ÿ˜‰

She does add some scale, I suppose. The finished banner is 12-1/4 x 50 inches.

Detail including bindingSince I can’t seem to manage the long shot, how about a closeup showing the plaid binding and the quilting, post wash and nicely crinkled?

There’s an even closer at the quilting here on my blog, Sophie Junction.


  1. Lovely cat and lovely banner. I'm in awe at the speed the members of this blog finish things!

  2. Lois, the block lotto banner was weeks in the making … and it's only 12.5" tall ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Great Photo and exquisite crinkles, post wash!!

  4. I wish you could all see and TOUCH it in real life, up close and personal. It has the nicest hand and drape that I think I could ALMOST wear it as a scarf … which would probably be the geekiest thing ever ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Very nice!

    I'd like to join block lotto. Can't find your email address on the blog, so hopefully this will suffice. I have my blocks done for January – hopefully I'm not too late to join.
