Streaming Stars!

Testing my new camera has been delightful!  It takes some incredible photos.  I am learning about all the features and functions.  

I thought it would be cool to take some close ups of the "Curly Hair" Quilting on my Streaming Stars Quilt in the full sun. 
I am not sure if I have the settings correct, but it really made the quilting stand out.  I have also realized you can see so much more detail. Wow!
The camera even has a setting that takes better photos under the bright florescent lights in my quilting studio.
This is the back of the quilt.
 Look how big the stitches looks!

and a full view.
It measures 12" by 46".
My friend, Tisha designed the pattern.  The pattern is called Stars and Shadows. She taught it as a Mini Quilt Class at Quilts by Barb's Quilt Retreat 2 years ago.  I completed the quilt top at the retreat and I finally quilted it in November. I named mine - Streaming Stars.  
The sun wasn't shining on the wall hanging in next photos and it was hanging on the wall. It was a bright sunny day. What a difference in the way the quilting looks.
 You can barely see the quilting from this angle. 
I didn't crop out my kitchen in this photo, so you can see where I hung the wall hanging.
I entered the Streaming Stars Wall Hanging in the Weekly Themed Quilt Show at Quilting Gallery.

My Streaming Stars Wall Hanging is my big finish for the week!  
Yippee!


So back to the photos... with this new camera there will be a learning curve...Please bare with me, as I learn how to take new and improved photos! It takes me awhile to learn new things! 


Some have asked what kind of camera I got. My new camera is a Cannon Power Shot ELPH 300 HS.


Enjoy your weekend!

I was a bit too late to vote. :( I was a bit disappointed in this weeks winners. I thought others to be a bit more deserving. Oh well...all in fun!
