    My thoughts exactly. Have to be so careful with bias work.

    when I read what you said about no contrast, and then scrolled down to photo #1,,,my thought was,,"you were right", but I loved the colors,,,,then I scrolled to photo #2 and WOW !!! all I could think was WOW....WOW....I love it..!!!! to me you didn 't need the contrast !!!! It's beautiful...

    First thing I notice is that it's the pieces cut on bias that seem to not line up. When you have bias pieces you have to be very careful not to stretch the piece. I think that may have been the issue here.

    But overall it's a wonderful quilt...and I think it all sort of blending is fine.

    Consider it a learning experience and go on with the new skills. I remember some of my early quilts!! Oh My!! But I kept going and learned as I went. It's a process every new quilter goes through.

    I like it too. maybe a little bit more contrast would have made the pinwheels "pop" but i like it as is. i was gonna say you can send it to me but somone beat me to the punch. I have had that pattern planned as my next but now I am a little intimidated about the whole bias thing. Which bali pop is that?

    I read your statement but I think it is really neat. I like the way the colors play with the patterns. I did not see missed points. I did not see any quilt police standing by.

    someone else posted a pic of a Trade Winds quilt recently.

    when i first started to quilt some one told me about the porch
    and a horse. you have some one stand on the porch and hold up your quilt. then you get on a horse and ride past the quilt. it you see all of mis points and things wrong with it. then get a faster horse and try it again. that is what i do. as it was made with love and that is all that counts. i love your quilt. i cant find anything wrong with it. blessings ogama

    It is very pretty - not sure what you were going for, but the result you have looks very good.

    has tried this pattern and can tell me if it worked for them.
    Trade Winds for Bali Pops. First time I used jelly rolls and of course I failed to pick a contrasty enough fabric for the triangle.
    quilt is beautiful. We don't see the flaws!
