    Quilting shows would show them doing and fixing an unperfect piece?
    they always start out by saying "lets see how it came out" "Ahh its just perfect!" LOL
    I wanna see that block come out like it comes out for me then explain why it turned out that way and how to fix it!

    Yeah how come we never see that? Makes us feel like it's always perfect for them when u know it's not.

    I have seen this on Fons and Porter, they have shown less than perfect seams/blocks and explained why it happened. :D:D:D

    I watched Eleanor Burns just yesterday and she made me feel soooo deficient,, because everything she did was so calm and casual and effortless and was perfect in the end. I told my husband as I watched, she is a genius to get everything so
    perfect the first time. I forgot they edit and re-film.....duh

    I too have seen this. Un-perfect seams, stuff in the way, etc. I feel right at home watching that show. I had to learn to get past the fast talking chatter though.

    poor guy he must have been embarrassed. I think the Fons girls would be the perfect people to make a show like that. Imperfections and how to live with them. :)
