    Are those siggie blocks done by hand or printed on fabric I really want to eventually get into some fabric printing. And I have been checking out dyeing and marbeling. But first I need to get my hinny to the machine and get started with the basics. :?

    How beautiful. I thought that's what you were speaking of in the post. We should do that one of these days! But there is so much going on at the moment, maybe in summer??

    Sharon, I think we should, too. It would be fun.
    And PJ, yes, sort of. We have freezing weather for 9 months and possible snow here for about 6-8 months, so I figured my pine trees with a few stars would be fitting. MY $10 camera is showing that it is worth every bit of $10, so you can't see it good. It say my name and place, of course, then "trees, snow, sunshine, and mountains". That about sums up where I live.

    I have a $200 camera and I can't get the pics to turn out for my handiwork the way I want. I need a camera with a self adjusting lense on it. This having to think and work at things like that take to much time, I want to quilt.

    Know what I mean??

    Norah,
    I tried to close up the pic with my photo program. There's to much contrast to get the thing to sharpen up. It's beautiful though, I did get to see the trees and stars. You talented lady!!

    I think a siggy quilt would be perfect at Christmas with everyone's name and having everyone contribute a block. Of course the men wouldn't, but their wives and mothers could do theirs. You could teach your grandchildren how to do one and let them design it. Oh so many possibilities. I know want to do one. You could them pass it down and keep it in the family.

    Thosa siggt blocks are done by hand or machine, it depends on you. No matter. But it takes only a few minutes if done by machine. As for the central area, ya can even write anything fun, or draw any picture, image what you want... either you can make any applique cute and tiny to place in the center. Use your creative mind and feel free how it to be the best on your own way.

    Have a great day,
    Nihal

    Norah...when I need a fairly good quality up close pic of a project (usually to email a wip pic to my sister or best friend) I use my full bed scanner. It normally does a really good job. If its a light color item and doesn't cover the whole area of the scanner bed I put a dark color (usually black) construction paper over the project before I close the scanner lid. Viola, instant up close photos. The "pics" can be cropped and altered through the scanner software program and used like any other jpg.

    I really love the siggy quilt!! I think it would be a really nice teacher's gift at Christmas time. Luckily, we have a VERY small school...so I could get the gal in the office to send home a secret packet with a square to each mom and have her help the kids do their thing on the blocks. Send them back to the office where they could be picked up and assembled. Hmmmm...thanks for the inspiration...this will beat last years mini blackboard ornament with all the kids' names written in "chalk" (a white paint pen) and trimmed in ribbon, and lace all to heck!!!
