What's wrong with this?

The good news is I found my camera! Wait a minute, why is this underlined? I can't get the underline off! It's been like this a lot lately, but when I go out and come in to edit the underline is gone. Help!

Ok so now it's not underlined all of a sudden. Why? Also, while we are on the subject of not knowing what the problem is with blogger, why can't I move pics around anymore? Also, I have another pic to post of this quilt but it keeps deleting it without warning and when I try to repost it it tells me something about a path not available. AHHHHHH!!!!

Well, onto quilting. I've been making a baby (or rather smaller size quilt for a baby) gift. I'm not really liking it. I love the pattern. I was a little unsure of the fabric. It's not colors I would usually put together, but I thought it was cute. Plus, the mother of this not-here-yet baby is kind of a modern girl so I thought maybe I'd go for it.
I bought it as a kit. I shouldn't have used such a large print for the large flower. The small yellow flower on the bottom shows up better in real life than it does in the dark pic taken in my basement. So does the blue flower. I'm just not sure I'm liking it. There is still another small flower and some vines to add, but I'm not sure what to do to make them pop. I want to use an brighter blue with a bold pink flower or a lighter pink fabric, but it seems like something is missing. What is it?

I always stress about making quilts for others. I don't want someone to feel obligated to use it because of all the time I'm putting into it. I'm thinking this is my last baby quilt gift. I just worry about it too much!

Glad you found the camera. Whew. Hate when that happens. The blogger thing is annoying. I hate when programs are upgraded and they end up being worse. To get around the underline thing I write somewhere else in the post and then cut and paste it. I don't know what is up with that but I learn cheats around things. Sometimes you can cut and paste pictures like that too when you can't drag them. Good luck with it.

Those computers. I think they all have minds of their own. Sometimes I call mine "Hal" after the computer in 2001 A Space Odyssy.
The baby quilt is cute, and I'm sure the new mom will love it.

I am glad you are blogging again and found your camera. I love coming around! I think if you use a bright blue thread to appliqué these flowers that would do a lot of good! I do love the colors and would be thrilled if someone gave me a quilt like this, honest!
