Oh, oh, I didn't catch a pin and it was still inside. I kept working with it until I got it out. It left a little hole in the top. I used liquid stitch on it, which covered most of it up (should have appliqued something over it but I didn't think of it). Then, when I put the binding on and completed sewing all the way around, I discovered I had started on the back side, so I ripped it all out and did it over on the right side. There must have been something else that happened but I can't think of it now.
very cute nobody will ever know but us and you. but don't you feel so proud of yourself!

Most "first" quilts don't look as wonderful as this! Don't be so hard on yourself. It's really, really nice! And after a few washings...it's amazing how "quilty" it starts feeling. This little boy will grow up loving it!
