My panel wall hanging is better after blocking but not perfectly straight. After thinking about why that happened, I decided that maybe there were too many interruptions when I was trimming it down at the beginning and I missed a step. IT WAS ONE OF THOSE DAYS!
I replaced my camera a few months ago but my photos were not much better, too much movement as I hit the button. I bought a tripod and I think my photos are better but it is hard to tell. My stitching matched the fabric and doesn't show up much in most places.
This second photo was taken with the flash off. The color is a little duller but a little more detail shows up.
I think I am never going to be much better at photography.
