I finally got down on the kitchen floor yesterday and basted Fussy Fairytales. It was quite the process. I used every single safety pin I own, including a new package of 75. I don't think I've ever pin basted a quilt this big. But it's done, and now on to quilting. A photography tip. I'm a point & shoot girl, but reading this post from 'Secondhand Dinosaur' about exposure compensation made me realize just how little I know about even my very basic camera.
First photo I took - regular indoor mode, unedited, no flash:
Second photo, exact same setting, no flash, but with some exposure compensation added:
Such a difference!! I realize that I may have over-done it a bit, this second photo seems over-exposed to me, but I wonder how much grief I could have saved myself over dark photos with this simple camera change. Especially on these dark & dreary winter days.
Just a reminder, today is the last day to enter on my Giveaway Day post, as well as the hundred of other giveaways being offered on the Sew Mama Sew blog. This evening I will be drawing a winner!
