    This should have been made only with the "Dancing Pinwheel" blocks and a couple of frames around the edge of the quilt. A beginners mistake, I suppose, I didn't cut the squares back to having all the right size before I put them together.... :oops: and then the trouble started, the blocks were totally out of whack. So this was my idea of changing it so it would at least look like something decent ;-)
    P.S. Hope this works with the picture and all, it's the first time I post something!!! :?

    Congrats on saving your quilt blocks and finishing it up! Most would have put the blocks up and quit...you did a great job and it is a beautiful quilt, full of excitement in color.
    Pat yourself on your back for finishing it up and for knowing how to post a picture on the board! I'm impressed!

    I don't see anything wrong and no one else will either, you will be the only on since you are the maker. I love the colors!

    Now, get it quilted and display it with pride. You learned lots doing this quilt. It has turned out so lovely. Just a little reminder, don't point out the problem areas. Good Job!:)
