Progress Report

OK, maybe it's not like the real official report, but I thought I could share some pictures of progress on my mom's quilt that I am working on.

I think I shared these fabrics with you a while ago,  and talked about what I am going to design... A special quilt for my mother's 60th birthday as a surprise (oh, don't worry, my mom doesn't read my blog because it is written in English).

It took me a while to decide on what I am going to do, so I finally started it.  Because I have been working on "other things" that I am not going to share yet, the progress has been very slow...

Here is a sneak peek...

No...the color is a little off, it is more like the one below,

Can you guess what I am going to do with these?  So far I think it's gonna look nice when it's all put together, but I really hope she will like it.

By the way... it is SOOO hard to take pictures of red fabric.  It took me several tries to get the shade of reds like this.  Do you guys have any tips how to take great pictures with red?  If you do I would love to hear it... Pretty please (grin)


  1. I'm not good really with photography. I do think your quilt is going to be amazing,the colour is so nice. I love the way you have used different tones of the same colour. x

  2. Wow, I can't wait to see the finished product! It's going to be so sweet :)

  3. That is going to be so cool! Plenty of light and a good camera are about the best tips I've got - LOL!

  4. for taking pics of the colors- natural daylight (plenty of it) will help the most, the same way your own eye sees them best under natural light.

    Now that you have the camerabag 2 program, try playing with that- on the left of the screen you have choices of styles, adjust, borders, etc. Under adjust, go down to color and play there. Selective saturation might be good- put the dot on the color you want to adjust, then move the sliders.

    Have fun!

  5. congrats! keep up the good work/this is a great presentation.....
