Sun prints

After the market, groceries and lunch, I headed into the sewing studio.

The first thing I did was to take updated photos of myself. Don't you hate doing that? It was time though. My header looked great to me but to be honest, it needed updating. It was a younger version of myself.

What do you think of the wider format? I'm not sure about it yet- still could change it to a single line of squares.

I then turned to the sun prints on the design wall and put the two top sections together. Oh my, I am so indecisive lately that I'm in a continual state of confusion! I have repieced the whole thing-- not sure if I like it better now or before.

These are the two top sections, not stitched together vertically yet.

I will carry on though. There is always an unsure stage and it's better to finish, however it goes.

I've been playing with the tiny strips that I cut off when doing the strip piecing. My idea is to use them for a background. I'm not sure if I want to do it horizontally--

 

Or vertically.

And can I make it work with all those colors? Decisions, decisions!

I think it is personal preference whether you want a larger header or not. Some blogs I go to have such a huge photo that it takes a lot of scrolling to get down to the post. When I open your blog, yours is all contained in the area of my monitor so I just do one little scroll and I'm at your post. My preference on my blog is a narrower header. I think you just have to go with your gut feeling on it.

I love the new header. The photos all work together beautifully. Now....horizontal or vertical??? Horizontal, of course, you can turn the quilt after it's made to either direction.....lol.
