    Some of the color spotted so here is what I did!

    Made my SIL a beautiful pinwheel scrappy cuddle quilt! Well it is beautiful to me! The last step is to wash it, which I did and everything turned out beautiful except one spot bled though. About the size of a small apple. Just one. I used a color catcher and always have been happy with them. One spot, gee, so here is what I did. I took a heart applique and ironed it on the spot and stitched around it. Wrote on it 'made just for you'. While I was sewing on a quilt little strip Christmas quilt, I kepted thinking of that quilt and how it is not so perfect now. This poem came to me and I will place a nice old tag with the poem on it when I give it to her.
    That is why she gets a quilt, she will love and appreciate all the work and that went in it! That is just her!

    "She's not a perfect quilt,
    she has a flaw or two.
    But when you need some
    warmth and love,
    She will be there for you!

    Hope you don't mind if I 'borrow' your little poem for my quilts.

    That will be true for all my quilts. Our instructor told us we could never create anything 100% faultless and that the odd mistake or oops gives it character. She is definitely not a member of the Quilt Police.
