    Here is a picture of my first big sized quilt. I have learned many lessons from this and am keeping this the way it is as a reminder of what I can do and what I should remember to do. I know there may be a few people on here disappointed that i didn't rip the rows out that are not in the correct order for the diamond shape but this will be a useful reminder to not get to full of myself as I am quilting and I think it is kinda artsy anyways.

    I agree completely that you should keep it the way it is! It is YOUR creation, and who is to say you did not design it this way? Very nice! :wink: :)

    Some quilters used to put a "humility" block to keep themselves humble. Maybe yours is a humility row. :) My grandson would probably think it was a robot...everything looks like a robot to him! I think you did a very nice job with your piecing. You really are showing great progress!

    I see that you used the quilted fabric on the back. Did you tie it. If not you might want to because the first time you wash it it will bunch up on you.

    One hundred years or more from now they are going to be showing this quilt on tv or whatever medium they have then and discuss the design. If they do not know that that row was a mistake and you've labeled it, they will attribute that row to the fact that you are a man, not many men quilted at this time, and it was a quite possibly this man's way of bucking tradition!
