    A lady that I know once told me, after I was going nutso after seeing more mistakes than I thought I had, that quilting is very forgiving on a quilt. She was right. I couldn't find the mistakes. I always use the Medium Meander pattern. Looks rich, is not expensive and for using the quilt it holds it all together just beautifully. But I loved the way she said "forgiving"!

    It is going to be beautiful and I am sure your son and daughter in law will just love it! Congrats to you and to your son!

    It's beautiful and your son will love it. Mistakes... let me tell you about mistakes. One of the first classes I took, a gal told us about the "3 foot" rule. If you can't see mistakes from 3 feet away, they don't exist. I love it, and use that as a guide line all the time! We are our own worst critics!! Just revel in the joy of completing something fabulous!

    WOW! Stunning! I like how it all comes together and it looks like you've been doing this all along, you should be impressed with yourself for doing such a fine job. I know people that have been quilting a long time and still do not get points quite the way they want them. So be proud of your work, I bet your Son and his new Bride will be proud to own it (probably show everyone who visits)

They will be so mesmerized by the overall beauty. Anyone looking purposely for unmatched areas is a bittywitch and should get a life.
    I hadn't heard the term "bittywitch" before, but it gave me a hearty laugh! thanks for the reminder not to be one!!

    Well, we are our worst critics. For your fourth quilt, you are well on your way to becoming a pro. I did not find any mistakes as the beauty out weighed any mistakes. Great job!
