    Red White and Blue Stars

    I think I finally figured out how to start a new topic! This is a quilt I just finished. There is a glaring mistake, and it isn't the border fabric I wanted, but it is now a flimsy. Just need to find time to quilt it! Thanks for looking!

    Okay, what's the glaring mistake? the only thing I see is that some of the background blocks are going in different directions. But then who cares? It's a very nice quilt, I love stars.

    There was no way to get around them going different directions. The center square (with the four star blocks) is not in the center! I should have made another row of blocks across the top! Ugh!

    What I see is one gorgeous quilt top! I love that the focus block is not centered. Please post a photo after it's quilted.

    I thought you had done that deliberately. I guess I missed that glaring mistake! Nice top.

    See no glare here (smile). Beautiful stars and a lovely finished project. Nice work. Thank you for sharing.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    I think that it is a lovely looking quilt! I see what you call 'glaring' but I prefer the term 'owner's intended mistake' or 'owner's signature'. No one can say that it does not belong to you!!

    That's a very handsome quilt
    I don't see any mistake, let alone a glaring one.

    I think you did a good job and it's very pretty. We are such critics of our own work.
