A Lovely Year of Finishes is really helping me with my suuper late bee blocks — this month, I’m going to finish up poor Phuong‘s camera-related block. She was so good about getting everyone’s blocks done, and I haven’t made hers yet! If I finish it this month, it won’t quite be a year late. >_< The theme was photography, so I wanted to do something like a camera obscura, but they kind of just look like boxes, which isn’t very fun. Instead, I’m planning to make the diagram of how cameras work (I think), and I’m going to see if I can English paper piece the weird box pieces together. Then I think I’ll applique it down onto a background fabric, embroider or machine stitch diagram lines, and applique the candles on. This is my plan! camera worky thingy diagram
