    Went to the quilt shop to get backing for a quilt I'm making my Mom. The lady behind me said, is that printed like that or is it pieced. I said, "Oh, it's pieced" and turned it over to show her. Then she said, "Oh, it's so flat I thought it was printed". Hmmm, I thought that the tops were supposed to be pressed and that flat was good? I think she meant it to be nice.

    I'll try to post it when I'm done. I have a hard time getting the pictures to post on here, but I'll at least try.

    The lady meant well, it was more of a compliment.

    My grandmother would have called that a "left handed compliment", one that could have been taked as nice or not.

    I'd take it as a compliment. If you piece something that someone mistakes for a panel, good work!!
