    Looks just great to me. Seems like you had it that way in your design. You did a great fix on you so called boo boo. I really like that You now have a new pattern.

    I once took a cooking class in New Orleans and the chef said, "If you start out making one thing and it doesn't turn out like you planned, CALL IT SOMETHING ELSE!" Your quilt is fabulous. You should sell the quilt pattern as you've developed it. Most creativity just HAPPENS! It's a beautiful quilt!

    It's beautiful and I love the way it turned out! You just put a whole new twist on it!
