    An interesting mistake. What would you call it?

    Last night I was tired and using EQ7 to design a Storm at Sea quilt for my son. I liked the end result pretty well, saved it, and went to bed. This morning when I was composing an email to him to confirm the design I realized it was not at all what I was attempting to do but was interesting. I had to go back and redo it to get it right. What would you call the mistake? Ann in TN

    I like the wrong one, it gives it even more movement
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    I like your mistake better too. I would call it Wavy Waves or Turbulent Ocean. Really cool looking!

    I have seen this variant before, called something like double storm. The term for this sort of event is serendipity. It is very good that you are open to seeing the possibilities when you make such a wonderful "mistake".

    The second is very traditional and the first is really unusual and tricks the eye. It has the illusion of a double exposure. There is a greater amount of motion in the first.

    Not a mistake but a variation! I like how it appears to be moving, like the waves on the water!

    Very interesting, and beautiful. I hope you make it in fabric. Here's a near-duplicate that someone made - scroll way down to see it -
