    Oh yeah...I liked this too much! Yoiu know what they say..."Pride cometh before a big fall"! Well my big fall came at the bottom of the quilt! I am not tearing it apart, or cutting two rows off! it will be my humility row and my daughter will not even notice it! I didn't until I uploaded the picture just now! It stays and I still love the quilt!

    It's a very pretty quilt. Most of us have blunders that we chalk up to learning experiences. Just move on!!

    Pretend you are Amish! They are supposed to make a mistake in their quilts.

    The beautiful color combiation draws the eye and that's all you see. No one will notice unless you tell them and if they do? Oh Well.

    I agree. I can see many different patterns emerging from this for future quilts. ;-)

    Where? Where? Oh, now I see it. Wasn't it SUPPOSED to be that way? Looks nice to me. That is your "special pattern" that is yours alone.

    It's called "artistic liberty". Remember that. It's lovely.
