    Red face "Black Tie" Finally Ready for the Quilter

    I made this for my son's wedding. It seemed appropiate.
    It is now ready for the quilter. Please don't look too closely (you'll see alot of mistakes). This is my fourth quilt so I am still learning (I need to take some classes). They say the quilting will help hide the mistakes. I sure hope she's good. lol

    What mistakes. I am looking at it as a whole and loving what I see. You are right to a point on the quilting hiding any errors. If your longarmer freemotions and sees an unmatched area, she can stitch through that intersection, pushing it down and in effect hiding it. But no one will be looking for anything anyway. They will be so mesmerized by the overall beauty. Anyone looking purposely for unmatched areas is a bittywitch and should get a life.

    I really like this pattern, and the red/white/black combo is great! Nice job

    We are our own worse critics! You see the errors because you made them. To the rest of us, it is beautiful! Love the color pallet and pattern. Great job. Hard to believe it's only your fourth. Please remember to show us it again once it's quilted. Thanks for sharing.
    The bad news is - time flies.
    The good news is - you're the pilot!
