Not Straight

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 hung it anyway and it is where it will always be seen up close where the eye is drawn to the center and not the edges. That makes the fact that it is not square less apparent.  I does what I wanted t to do, add color to a blank, colorless area.

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.

I agree, up close it won’t be noticeable for straightness. And as long as you can live with it and enjoy it when you look at it, that is all that is important. It is a really pretty Fall panel that I think you finished beautifully.
