    Looks wonderful to me. If I did not have mistakes every once in a while, I would think I was doing something wrong.

    I love the reds and pinks together. Remember, you are suppose to have a God block in every quilt. That is a block that isn't perfect so that we remember that only God is perfect! And I always have at least one God block in each of my quilts.

    shhhhhhhhh, don't tell anyone, but no human is 'perfect'. Lighten up on yourself and enjoy the process. Life is way to short to bypass the journey in search of perfection. Your quilt is AMAZING, keep up the great work and enjoy the addiction!

    I think it looks just lovely. Great job and I bet you learned a few things. Don't be so hard on yourself, just enjoy the process and the finished product will look lovely. Thanks for posting.

    It's lovely! And remember, you need to have a couple "imperfections" to make it so people can tell it's homemade. If it was "perfect", it would look all mass-produced.

    Makes me yearn for strawberries and cream! It's lovely, and any mistakes aren't visible to me. Besides, I subscribe to the motto "Anything worth doing is worth doing badly." I had to think about that one when I first ran across it, and then realized its meaning and real value.

    I recently discovered a block left over from a quilt I made 4-5 years ago....I hadn't been quilting long and it was a difficult pattern....that said it was absolutely atrocious!!! Width of lines in didn't match from one end to the another....the block wasn't square....I was mortified when I saw it. I pieced the same block with left over fabric and the difference is like night and day!! I'm keeping that first block just the way it is as a reminder of how far I've come!!! Believe I said this before: There is only one being that is perfect!!!

    Bright and beautiful. Time brings perfection but enjoy the journey and new never think we have reached the goal. Lovely quilt. Give it a hug.

    We all make mistakes, but that is how we learn.

    Why oh why are we so hard on ourselves? My horse and I couldn't see anything but a super quilt when we went by. You did good girl. Waiting to see the next quilt. Thanks for showing us. BrendaK

    I have been quilting since 1989, and I can't see your mistakes. Go for it. Each quilt you make will get better, and you will learn more and become more confident.

    Perfect is boring!
    Mistakes are just opportunities to invent a new quilting technique!
