But now I have the top completed! And here it is:
Yes, these are floor pictures, so the perspective doesn't work. Yes the fabric choices and block placement look a bit random. But the cornerstones match up very well and I am quite proud of them.
And, yes, I did say in a previous post that I didn't feel comfortable posting someone else's pictures, but you can't really see the photos well so.....
So I opted to turn the photos into 10 inch square blocks. (The photos were 4 X 6 inch photos when I printed them.) So this is a throw sized quilt top. I also opted out of borders because I didn't want to take much of the focus away from the photos.
Once I got the top happily finished, my sewing machine decided to act funky. I had changed the thread to sew the backing together, and it tangled repeatedly. Frustrating. But it also reinforced to me that at this point I should have someone else quilt this quilt. So it heads out tomorrow or the next day.
So, happy as I am with the corner matching, I am not at all thrilled with the sewing machine right now. It may have to head to the doctor's for a tune up soon. After all, I will still have to put on the binding. GRRRRRR! Machines! (No, I am not really a Luddite, honest.)
