    It's beautiful and you have just developed a new quilt pattern - remember, no mistakes, just happy accidents.

    Well I think it was a "Happy accident". I have had crazy moments too that have turned into creative moments. Love your quilt!

    You are a true problem solver. Of course we didn't see any problems. Quick thinking. The quilt looks great. BrendaK

    Mistakes are actually new opportunities for creativity! Great save! Love your color choices, BTW. Thanks for sharing.

    You must have gotten your mind back really quick. That is beautiful and I don't think a planned quilt would have come aout any better. You did a great job and I love it.

    Oh, I think it turned out much better than just "OK". A star is born! Nice job!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
