    There are lots of people like this in the world today. The busy people just have to learn to listen, (or not) and dismiss their words the minute they get on down the road. The people who have the time and inclination to silly talk will do it--the rest of us are too busy to waste our time or emotions on it.

    But it is sad how so many experts really are no expert at all--just strongly opinionated.

    Don't people like this ruin places for others. We have one in a group I sometimes go who knows everything about everything and gets things wrong but cannot be put down. Some go other,aces and leave the group because of one.

My grandmother did everything by hand also, they were so beautiful on her beds. We now use them as decorative room additions and tuck them away as treasures.

Plus, if you build in something that is wrong for the design, it's not a mistake, it's a design decision.
    That is really odd... i used to live near and work with several Amish in PA....i was not a quilter then, and when i asked about seeing a backward or upside-down square in their quilt, was told that they did always put an "error" in the quilt, because only God is perfect. Maybe it's a regional thing?
