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.

QuiltswithConvicts 03-28-2011 04:10 AM

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.

I love this one the color is awesome.

Butterflyspain 03-28-2011 04:22 AM

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.

here is my block #21. Well some thing is wrong I can't add pic will try later

Butterflyspain 04-05-2011 09:55 AM

Thats beautiful too lovely material on the flowers

lisamortell 04-05-2011 10:32 AM

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.

Oh by the way i got my Affairs of the Heart Pattern and the back ground material. Now i have to figure out the other materials.

Butterflyspain 04-05-2011 11:57 AM

Welcome to the Group if you havenīt already been welcomed, look forward to seeing your blocks

sandpat 04-05-2011 11:59 AM

lynnie...thats sooo pretty! Great job! I'm in the process of picking fabs for this block now.

Butterflyspain 04-05-2011 12:09 PM

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.

Lacelady 04-05-2011 01:32 PM

Nice block Lynnie I love this one.

sandpat 04-05-2011 04:09 PM

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:!!

with all you have to take care of i think that you just don't sit as long.

QuiltswithConvicts 04-05-2011 06:56 PM

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.

Butterflyspain 04-06-2011 12:20 AM

Oh Patti, I definately sit too long at this one. I finished my 7th block last night but got no thread to sew it, so this one has to stay put till I get the thread. I am not so sure about my colours on this one. But its done and staying that way.

I am going to have to watch that I still fit into my swimsuit with all this sitting, I am off to Turkey in May.

sandpat 04-06-2011 05:38 AM

It may be more of an "ants in my pants" kind of thing...I just can't sit still for very long at a whack. Drives DH nuts...we'll be outside sitting on the porch enjoying ourselves, the next thing ya' know..I'm off pulling weeds in the flower beds or yard..:roll:

Elle...yes, you better watch it..you know we want to see the beach pics..with you in your bikini! (Just thought...are those the nudie beaches???? :shock: )

ruck9085 04-06-2011 06:33 AM

Patti, why not? She could have fallen in love with your cute kitty and his fish.

sandpat 04-07-2011 05:05 AM

Nice one Patti - I love it - odd how your background is still looking like brown even though I know you say its green.

sandpat 04-12-2011 04:42 AM

I know, its kinda like how your blue is showing up turquiose in all your pics....I did take that one in daylight..my camera is old...maybe I need to us the app on my ipod.

I think it just goes to show that we are better quilters than photographers, and I'd rather be a quilter.

sandpat 04-12-2011 04:16 PM

Well, darn it...why can't we be both??? LOl!

Lol, I'd love to be really good at everything I do, but realistically I'm not - oh well, back to the quilting.

QuiltswithConvicts 04-13-2011 04:09 PM

I'd like to be a great cook, but sadly, I still eat everything I make & so does DH, hence the weight problems. The boys grew up healthy & strong, but I'm a meat & potatoes cook, nothing fancy. Tried sweet potato fries from the freezer tonight - yuk! Too mushy inside. I know they are probably more healthy, but - yuk! Dufus liked them well enough, though! I wish I could consistently make a good meatloaf. Sometimes, it's better hot & sometimes better cold in a sandwich. Why can't I make it good both ways at the same time??? :?

Guess I'll stick with quilting as I do that fairly well - except for this FMQ with the Razzle Dazzle. I think I'm going to finish up all the remaining blocks before doing any of the embroidery. Then doo all of them at the same time - should get better by the time I'm finished.

sandpat 04-13-2011 04:43 PM

I agree Kathy, the Razzle Dazzle is really hard to work with by hand too...but oh gosh...so worth it when its on! I'm just hoping that it will wash ok...I'm really scared to try it and I know I should before I go any further with it!
