    Here is 3 more pictures, of my newest quilt, and my grandaughter, again.

    Here is a picture of my quilt..I have to take it apart, in half now..Two of the triangles, that when I sewed the quilt together, form full 1/2 triangles. I will post a picture of my mistake..

    A close up of my quilt block's, and you's may be able to see, the full red triangles, that are incorrect..The quilt it self are to be of 4 different triangles, as to when the quilt was sewed together..

    If you hadn't pointed it out, I'd never have found the "mistake". It's a BEAUTIFUL quilt! And your granddaughter is adorable!

    Great job, Don! Believe me, YOU are the only one who will every see your invisible mistake! However, if it will bug you every time you see the quilt, rip 'er out and fix it! Personally, my tolerance for my many mistakes is growing each day!

    I really like your quilt and decided I must be blind I cannot see your mistake
    sometimes I think when we know it is there it can bother us but most of the time no one else will see it your grandaughter is a real cutie

    I've done that before with quilts--work very hard at NOT getting the same fabrics next to each other, only to sew it up and see the blasted things together! Aaargh!

    But I always leave it--and my quilts are first grade compared to yours.

    I kind of like that "error" there. :wink:

    And what a beautiful granddaughter you have!

    She's going to be an amazing quilter, just like grandpa. :D

    well Don your quilt may have a slight imperfection (only to you) but that baby is perfect! if you must change the quilt, hopefully you can just seperate that one block, rotate it and put in back in the same hole!

    Don: I love all your quilts. You use so many fabrics, do you use fat quarters or just have a huge stash?? Is this quilt paper pieced??

    You granddaughter is beautiful!!

    Oh isn't she a little cherub!!. Your quilt reminded me of medieval knights crosses. Don't ask me why, I just don't know, but they did.
