    Update to Yikes, look what I did!

    I couldn't do it, I had to fix it! So I didn't even like the border, so here is what I did. I really like it and it will even be better when it is quilted. Amazing what you can do when you feel better, it really shows in the quilting.

    The white border is the one I put the rows on wrong, notice all the yellow rows all on one side.
    The blue border is the updated and corrected quilt top. Even though it will go to charity I wanted it right. I have yet to quilt it.

    I do like the border better and I think you did a wonderful job, I thoght your other "design" kind of looked like light and dark so I didn't realize what you found wrong the first time. You are very patient and I do like the second "design"

    I am the same way too, there are just some goof-ups I can't live with and must fix. I think your border swap was a good choice, the blue really sets off the colors better than the white. I think it is great that you put as much effort into a charity quilt as you do for a gift or keep quilt. Great job!

    When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000 step process."
