Block 46 Nearly Insane

This Block did not work. I tried Jan to put the button in the centre as a feature but it was not going to work and I then made an error and had a row a holes. Those gorgeous fabrics of yours will get used but I will have to wait til the right Nearly Insane week.

Has anyone any secrets to photographing straight. This block is square, It is me who is the problem. The centre is a gorgeous flower. The gorgeous dotty fabric was a purchase during our recent holiday to Tasmania. An Early Elly S Baltimore Beauties range. Just Love it.
Will post a few photos of our holiday soon. Have a great Day  Cheers Lynne

The block has come out so beautifully Lynne, what a shame the first star didn't work out, but it all came together in the end. The dotty fabric is just darling, I've never seen it before. And I really like the yellow too!

I used that same black dotty fabric in a black and white quilt I made ~7 years ago. I love the red and orange together. When I photograph my blocks, I put them on the floor with a sheet of white paper under them. I try to use as much natural light as possible. Make sure your camera is level with the floor. Make sure all of these are parallel with each other: the edge of the white paper, the block top and bottom, and the view finder edge....all of that before you click. Hope this helps.
