    I don't think I've done enough to see a trend in my work. Though I am a Virgo and this thread has taught me one thing. When giving your qork to someone BITE THY TOUNGE! :D I do point out my errors when I'm working on it, or say "well it's not perfect", ect.

    I tend to sneak a lot of purple into my quilts as well. and I love florals but sometimes when you are making it for someone else, they don't like flowers or (gasp) purple. I also have a tendency to point out my flaws.

    Oh, mine are definitely all the same! They all have fabric of some kind, usually cotton, but sometimes silk or wool or linen or burlap or velvet, or any combination thereof...and each fabric is always some solid or pattern, printed or woven, in a single or multiple shade or tint, value or saturation of a hue...and it is all held together with thread, usually of cotton, but sometimes metallic or wool or silk or rayon. Yup, I definitely see a trend there! :D

    You are so funny. I do the same thing. I point out my mistakes. I was thinking of posting a topic. IS THERE A PERFECT QUILT? I don't think I've ever made one and I really really try to. But as the years pass I kinda forget what my bo bo was in that quilt. I almost made it a while back and then when I was snipping a thread I cut a slash in the fabric. a small one but still I almost lost it, It was completely done, quilted, binded and then oops. Keeps us humble doesn't it?

    Aim for excellence, not perfection. It's a far more realistic goal. (Sometimes the goal is just to finish what I started. :roll: )

    I did a little weave thing like I was darning something. Since it was a gift from the heart I was going to put a little red heart over it but I couldn't find it. I didn't spend lots of time looking and it was time to get it in the mail so I just sent it. I'm going to ask my sister to find it and I'll put the heart over it the next time I visit. I could hardly take the thing apart at that time but I do want to put the little heart embroidered thing over it cause I'm sure it'll ravel in time. There aren't many of us that actually remember darning but I did some when I was a little girl, came in handy that day.

    I find that I use bold colors ... no whites or pastels in my quilts! And I love orange and black.
    I've been quilting only a year and a half, and one of my two neighbor quilting friends has always told me DO NOT point out mistakes in your quilts (as she was trained). So I abide by her advice, but it sometimes requires some painful biting of my tongue.
