    Many of you are posting your mistakes and so I post this one, possibly making some of you feel better. I bought this fabric over a two year period for special people in my life. In anticipation of major surgery next month, I was quilting like a madwoman this Spring. I was substitute teaching almost every day and had nine quilting projects going at once, along with everything else. Probably because I was going so fast, and was so tired, I didn't see these very obvious mistakes until this was almost totally quilted. At first I cried, almost threw-up and put it in the closet. The other day I got it out and am finishing it. I will keep it and display it in a prominent place to remind me how even quilting, like life, isn't perfect. But it sure keeps me humble and honest!

    OMG! The mistakes just jump out at you!

    Beautiful quilt!
    I don't think the mistake shows very much at all... I bet if not pointed out, many would never know it is there :D:D:D

    Quit being so hard on yourself!
    We are all imperfect quilters living in an imperfect world.
    Mistakes keep us humble! Your quilt is gorgeous!

    A little "randomness", in quilts as well as life, can be a good thing. It's a beautiful quilt!
