    Welcome from E. Tennessee. I believe the old time quilters used to put a deliberate "mistake" into each of their quilts because they felt that to make the "perfect" quilt was mocking God, as "only God can make something perfect".. just a little quilt lore for you.

    those aren't "mistakes" they're personality, and they are what makes that quilt 100% yours and 100% perfect.

    I heard that the Amish do that too. I don't have to worry about putting deliberate mistakes in my quilts, there is always something I feel I could have done better! All part of quilting, I guess.

    Welcome from Pine Grove, California---those little mistakes we make just give the finished product "character"---don't worry about them!

    You're going to like it here. Prepare to be inspired, learn a lot, get help when you need it and best of all laugh!
