    I think most of us are our own worst critics. I will make something and then as I'm showing it to someone I am saying yeah but look here where I messed up!! LOL I have been told all quilts need a humility block in them to remind us that only one is perfect and that is God. Mine all have LOTS of humility in them!!
    My first quilt I did was a sampler quilt that I handpieced. I took it to show my bro and his wife and when I got it all layed out there was a block that I immediately saw that was wrong. Like was said earlier, it might as well have been flashing neon!! It's still there and it's still wrong because I will not take it out and redo it from the middle of the quilt!! LOL

    When Native Americans do their beadwork, they intentionally put in a bead that is obviously wrong, because only God is perfect and they want to make it clear that they are not trying to be perfect, because man cannot be like God in that way. I like that. :-)

    I do too and I have read this same thing on Amish and Jewish quilting. I like the concept of doing that. I don't have to intentionally do it though!! LOL

    Me neither! LOL My quilts cooperate beautifully, they incorporate their own mistakes so that I never have to worry about deliberately putting a mistake in. :D Isn't life wonderful!

    I do a lot of individualizing then! I don't see the mistakes, though until I am almost done quilting and definitly am not going to start over--I guess I am a lazy quilter or not very careful. Most of the time its simple things that I should hve noticed. The recipients are not quilters and don't notice my screw ups but I see them. To me it like they are flashing neon signs. My sister says that I am too picky and need to learn that it isn't about perfection but the joy of giving and rceiving.
    Hey Vicki! You just need to become a 30 miles per hour quilter! Hang your quilt up outside & drive by at 30mph - if you can't see the mistakes, everything is just FINE!!! lol :P
