    This took me 2 years to finish I am embarassed to say. I don't really know why ~ it just did. If you notice the top right of the picture...look at how I lost the block. The ONLY thing I could figure out is that my 1/4" seam was off. If you think it doesn't make a difference...think again! This was for my daughter Emily and if it wasn't for the fact that she loved it so much and wanted it no matter what ~ I think I would have chucked it in the bin.

    Great job! I love the colors. Didn't notice the short blocks on right until I reread to see what you said again about the short blocks.

    It is beautiful despite the short blocks! I'm glad you saved it, too.

    Isn't it funny how the maker of these beautiful quilts notices things that no one else does...LOL ;) I would have NEVER noticed that block. Great job!!

    I like it. You did a good job.

    I'm sorry it took so long to complete. I have that pattern and ruler/template. I thought it went together rather fast.

    Glad that Emily likes it.

    I like it. With all the "modern" quilts out there now this fits right in. Emily will love it.

    Thanks for sharing this. Many of us would probably be too shy to share, what with all the perfect examples that get posted here on the board. But mistakes are by far the best way to learn. My goal is to make a new and different mistake next time, but sometimes it doesn't go that way.

    And your quilt is quite charming, I think.

    Looks great to me! Actually, it looks like the right side is "twisting" off the quilt - like it was meant to be! Wasn't that what you had planned all along???
