    "Pointless"

    This was my first large quilt. I went into this project with absolutely minimal knowledge or understanding of correct cutting, piecing, bias handling and basting....happily sailed into this project blisfully ignorant and full of bravado! As you can see many of the batik triangles are missing their points and my rows are, to be frank....wonky at best! Hence the name of this quilt is "Pointless" and whilst I wince at the magnitude and number of inaccuracies I managed to sew into this poor quilt, I do love its bright colours, how it looks on my couch and how it feels on my lap of an evening!

    I believe for some people at least, the quality of the quilt is not the construction, but how much joy and comfort it can bring to someone! Unless you are bent on winning some award, there is no better achievement than making a well loved quilt! Congrats, it's beautiful!

    If you had not mentioned that there were mistakes, I would never have noticed. Still haven't actually. It's so busy and bright and colorful that your errors fade away. I think it's super!!

    I think it looks great and you picked a very difficult pattern to have to match. They look matched to me.
