Taking pictures is a good thing

There's something about a picture that helps you see things you just can't seem to see in person. In looking at the picture I see I've messed up a couple blocks in the bottom right of the quilt. Good thing nothing is sewn together yet! The center pinwheel in the bottom right star is supposed to look just like the center pinwheel in the top left star.

Pictures are worth more than a thousand words - they are also worth the time it takes to do a whole bunch of frogging!

Isn't amazing how a photo will expose what we miss in person? Your snowy morning pics are pretty! How I love snow...we are preparing for a big ice storm tonight and tomorrow...

Oh yes, I see what you mean! A little distance gives a different perspective. this quilt is looking great. Your snow pictures are amazing.

A photo is good for checking tones too. Especially if you take it in black and white. Much faster than ripping out for sure. I love the quilt and sooooo many tiny triangles. I am impressed!

Question...do you have to un-sewn or can you just reverse the block. Looks like tyou could take the 3rd block up and move it down one and move the 2nd block up into the upper space...Thne twirl the other one???

Looks fantastic and you are doing such a good job Patti! It's a very extensive quilt.

The quilt is going to be so gorgeous. I agree it's so much better to change before it involves ripping out. :o)

Now that you point it out -- but I sure never noticed on my own *s*

I agree about the picture taking. Patterns that I dont notice with my naked eye just jump out in a photograph. I love Sophies Stars! Did you mention the pattern that you are using?

You're right - I take pictures of my WIP often now that I have a digital camera. Helps me see if things look right colorwise. So glad that you found it before you started sewing it!
