    This is my first attempt at quilting many years ago. I made this quilt from a pattern piece mom had bought a kit. We both like mine better. Hers was kind of plain with no prints. I have made several quilts over the years but just for special occasions. Just started quilting again.

    There is a deliberate flaw in my quilt. My mom told me when I was 16 that no quilt should be perfect. Aside from the errors sewing, can you find it. LOL.

    Must give credit to my mom (ann_1939) who did the quilting. She did an excellent job and I still have the quilt 35 years later.

    I can't believe this was your first quilt!
    BTW I was told sort of the same thing. "Only God can make perfect things". I think it might be an Amish saying.

    You did an awesome job on your first quilt all those years ago. I did see the diamond too but it looks like it's suppose to be there.

    What a beautiful quilt! I agree with cjomomma, it looks like the white diamond should be there.

    Really beautiful. You did a good job. I don't look for character squares or pieces, I see love and beauty when I view quilts :D

    Nice job for first quilt. I never have to build in flaws. They just come by themselves. I guess we can't make a perfect quilt even if we tried, because we are not perfect.

    Beautiful quilt! I love the reason for adding the flaw in, I may start that myself. Thanks for sharing.

    I am often blown away with 'first quilts' that are shared on this forum! What a wonderful quilt! And to still have it. I gave my first quilt to a friend and she still has it hanging 25 years later!

    Beautiful! Didn't see the 'flaw' until you pointed it out.

    You and your Mom were so right. The prints really make this quilt! Your first quilt? What could you possibly do to top it?

    "Granky" showed me...otherwise, what flaw???

    Very ambitious for a first quilt...I'm still at the "sacrificial quilt" stage. Beautiful quilt.
