Distance Viewing….

Sometimes you are just too close to your work and need to step back and see it from a distance. The problem comes when your room is small and you can’t get far enough away!!

To fix this, you can use a “reducing glass”……

….which is basically a magnifying glass in reverse. Instead of making things appear closer, they look further away!!

However, instead of purchasing a glass made especially for quilting, how about visiting your local hardware store and buying a door peephole for much less money…..

It will work the same, is smaller to store and CHEAPER….can it get any better?

Now, let me end off with a funny story. Many years ago I used a peephole to design this quilt…..

…and honestly, it looked better thru the glass than it did in person. I threatened to hang the peephole to a string and tell people to look at it THRU the glass!!

That would have worked!!!

    1. It is easy for me to forget to back up and look at it from a distance. When we expanded my studio two years ago, my design wall ended up a little away from my cutting table and, although I have to walk more, I really like it that way!!!
