    It may be a mistake, but it is beautiful...maybe the fabric didn't want to be a OBW...lol

    Great example of turning lemons into lemonade. It's a beautiful quilt.

    Very pretty. Let's call it a new design, not a mistake...

    Indeed, I wish my mistakes looked like this. Mine usually land in the rubbish. The only thing I'd have done differently, is having all the pinwheels look in the same direction. But I guess this way it is more vivacious.
