Block #47 Homemaker
This block was quite a challenge because for starters, I followed the pictures in the book and did not actually follow the instructions. Once I realized that the block wasn’t going to go together as planned, I ripped it out and tried by following the written instructions. The second try went much smoother but you can see I have two little puckers in the fabric, not to mention when it gets sewn into the quilt I’m going to lose some of those points.
On a side note, today I took on another side project and created a DIY light box in the hope that I will be able to take some better photos for the blog. I think the photo of the block above is an improvement but I still have some tweaking to do. Anyone have any suggestions or tips on how I can get it brighter? I’ve been toying with the exposure control but haven’t quite found the right balance yet.
