    This was my 3rd attempt at quilting :roll: I used a windmill templete and didn't realize I shouldn't have had the fabric folded when cutting so I ended up with some piont going in backwards. All in all I think it turned out great and my MIL loved it

    Very pretty. I like the colors.

    I used a windmill templete and didn't realize I shouldn't have had the fabric folded when cutting so I ended up with some piont going in backwards.
    Call it a design choice. :) I find I learn something with just about every quilt I make.

    that is very pretty! I wasn/t able to see anything wrong, so I guess the backward points just made it prettier.
