    I see so many posts here where people post pictures of beautiful quilts and then say 'it's not perfect'. I feel people are too hard on themselves, if it was perfect it would not look handmade. If you want a perfect quilt, buy one at Walmart that is made in China. If your quilt is as beautiful as is looks in the picture, then it is perfect in my book. Give yourself the credit you deserve.

    I always want to ask the maker "what is not perfect". There may be a lesson to learn or something just in the eyes of the maker

    I get what he means by "perfect wal-mart quilt" as in perfect...because it's done in production.

    There is no such thing as perfect. The most beautiful things have some flaw. We just have to do our best and take pride in what we do.

    That is exactly what I meant. All done on a production line.

    Of course the quilts are not perfect...what is? Unless made by God there are faults.

    Even though Walmart quilts are done on a production line they're still made by women sitting at sewing machines. They're about as imperfect as you can get.
