    Mistakes???????? It was just your interpretation. I think it looks beautiful! Perfect is for God.

    Each quilt is it's own variation on intrepretation.

    Good job! You are DEFINITELY too hard on yourself. Remember the rule: if you lay the quilt on the sidewalk, then ride your bicycle by it on the street, and you can see errors, then you have something to worry about. If you can't see the errors, they aren't there.

    Exactly! Like Bob Ross used to say "They're not mistakes -- they're happy accidents"! And besides, I don't anything wrong with this little beauty at all... except that it's not headed my way... LOL! Seriously, it's fabulous! Great job! Keep'em comin'!!!

    Your quilt is so pretty, and I love the way you used those colors. What is a perfect quilt?

    I think you did a great job. Your quilt is very pretty. You are too hard on yourself.

    You should be very proud. You took many little pieces of fabric and put them all together to make a lovely quilt. Enjoy the accomplishment, and think about all you have learned while doing it. Your next quilt will be better than the first, and your next better after that. Stitches made with love out weigh perfection any day.

    Looks good to me, besides if there are mistakes, we only learn from mistakes. Most of the time only the one quilting the quilt knows where the mistakes are, others don't usually notice them unless the viewer is going over ever stitch and block with a fine "tooth comb" or unless they are being judged in a show. Don't worry about them, just have fun, and you will know what you need to correct on your next quilt. Besides it's your quilt and you can always say that is just how you had it planned. Keep on with you good work dear quilter.

    Looks great to me. I always say that quilts come to life with some mistakes or flaws. Life isn't perfect and neither should a quilt. Awesome job for your first quilt!!!

    That lovely. I really like your scrappy look and you sound just like me when I started. I still haven't made the "perfect" quilt but no longer have any worries about this. I love thinking, creating, working with colour and fabric. Keep up the great work.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    Lovely! I didn't see any flaws - just admired the whole quilt. The way I look at it, only God is perfect, and I'm a 'work in progress', including my quilting. Honestly, when you give someone something that you made yourself, they are always in awe and very thankful -- that, and the good feelings you get from creating your pieces and giving those to others are the only important things, aren't they?

    Sweetie, that is waaaay better than my first quilt. You should be proud of it. Nice colors, great fabrics, and overall a very pretty quilt. Just for the record, most of us are terribly critical of our own work. It is part of being human. Accept all that you learned from it, and make another one. You will be surprised at the result. We really do get better with each one. Welcome to quiltaholics.
    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.
