    was this Christmas d9p. The owners keep telling my that I did a fantastic job for my first time. I am a perfectionist, so I see all the booboos!

    It's great, love it. I think we are our own worst critics. I never like anything I make cause I see booboos too. Someone once told me to ignore the mistakes, the non quilter I am gifting has no idea they are there. It's helped some, but I still strive for perfection.

    In two weeks, go back and see if you can find the boo boo's. Then in three months go back and you will see how far you have come and how much you have improved. We all learn a little at a time. Those imperfections don't make us bad people or keep us from going to Heaven, they just show we are human. Isn't it amazing that no one else sees them, only us. Strive to do your best and then give yourself a break.

    so beautiful! There are no boo-boos when a quilt looks as wonderful as yours.

    I think it looks great! No one takes a quilt and looks at it from 6 inches away, and usually that's where you start seeing "things". Just take a step back and appreciate the overall beauty of the quilting!! My meander always ends up with a few loops, but once it's all said and done and I take a step back, you can't even tell it wasn't meant to be that way. :)

    Cheers!

    It is beautiful. I can't see any boo boos. I am like you - I do it, and then when I look at it the boo boos are very evident to me. However, unless you tell people, 9 times out of 10 they will never see them. We are usually the most critical with our own stuff.

    Absolutely gorgeous! Imperfections make the quilt more special as they cannot be repeated in another quilt. You have done a great job!

    Thanks, KandiKane! It is currently folded on a chair in the corner of my bedroom. I am such a fanatic that I have more quilts than storage space!

    Great quilt. My first experience with LA I thought I'd never do it again. Second time was much better.
