    Love your colour choices Kathy. Here are mine. In reality, the leaves are much greener than the flowers, so I'm not sure why my camera wanted to make them all look so similar.

    Ooooo!!!

    OK, you brought it up. Do you have any idea why the cameras change the color so drastically some times and others, the color is spot on?

    I noticed that last night when I was photographing these last 8 blocks. The floor was a really different color on the last one I shot. All were shot in the same 5 minute period, but the floor was more orange than light brown. The block wasn't all that far off, though. You don't see the floor as I'm cropping it off.

    Not a clue, but it is so irritating. I have really tried not to take pics at night, because in my artificial light they REALLY change, but most of my blocks come out looking quite similar to life, and some are quite off. I always take them in the same place (on the seat of my sofa, the floor is too far away, LOL), so the only other difference might be variation of daylight from cloudy to sunny?

    Great looking blocks Ladies!

    I find the same thing when taking pics. I think a ton of it has to do with the available (or lack of) daylight coming in a window. I do find that I can change the settings on my camera - I tend to use the ones for "floral scenery" to get the most accurate colors. If you use the flash, it is just about guarenteed to be off color.

    Ha, I was using the floral setting Patti, cos I find the same thing - I used to have an SLR camera, and never learned how to change the settings on that, what with F stops etc. - they just confused me.

    This is a function of the white balance. On some cameras you can manualy addjust it. Look at the manual for your camera. I have setting on my camera for different types of lighting.

    This is a really pretty block, doing another at the moment. How many have you made now Patti. So far its 7 plus the one I am nearly finished for me. Canīt believe I have made so many. It wasnīt until today when I was showing the blocks to the ladies at the club. I have just been putting them in a box each time I finished one.

    Elle, I think I'm working on my 9th one. I have to add some more embroidery to one (oops- forgot a bit of it). I cut out the pieces for the next one today. These are fun to do..but it takes me several sittings to get them done. Either I'm a lot slower sewer than you and Lesley...OR...I don't sit as long :lol: :lol: :lol:!!

    Lisa, welcome to the group! This quilt will grow on you very quickly. Tell us, please, what are your plans? original size or enlarged version? Background color? Inquiring minds want to know.
