Quilted and bound

     I am not sure why I have such a difficult time getting photos off the camera and into the blog. The process seems painstaking- hooking up the camera to the computer, choosing the photos, renaming them before they download, download to the right folders, using Picmonkey to crop/touch up, and then writing the blogpost. I have split the newest quilt photos into 2 posts. The Gold Star quilts have been my focus. Also, I have been eeking small quilts off the Nolting. Boy, do I do a wobbly job on it.
     First photo is a Laurel Burch panel that I have had ready to quilt for a couple of years. I have loved Laurel Burch for many years. The back is solid black and you can see the quilting there better. Done on my Nolting.
Photo taken outside in the sun, finally!
The black looks gray in the sun
The back photo taken indoors, still doesn't look black
 
     The Gold Star quilts are coming back from the longarm quilters, Chasen Dreams (on Facebook), two sisters, awesome quilters, who are donating their services, the batting, the labels and coordinating all these quilts for the Gold Star camp in July. Here are a couple I bound yesterday.
      The Disappearing Nine Patch using 5" squares will be a tutorial in May at Confessions of a fabric addict for the Hands2Help drive.

I agree, prepping pics for the blog is a tedious task. I remove the sim card from my camera and plug it into the port on my computer. I use Adobe Photo Shop Elements. I have never used Pic Monkey, so I cannot compare.

Your quilting is beautiful.

Actually cloudy days are better for photographing because the color will be truer. Sunlight reduces the intensity of all colors.
I think you are doing a great job on the longarm in the short time you have had it.
