    How funny is this... I made this quilt back in the 80's. Probably my 5th or 6th quilt. I hand quilted it, finished the binding, hung it over my couch about three years later and then I spoted my "mistake" as some people might call it. I can't help it, I love it as it is. I can remember how upset I was with myself at the time. But now I can laugh about it.

    Beautiful quilts. If anyone happens to notice, just tell them that you are a perfect quilter so you had make one block a little different because only God is perfect. :)

    It's just a vanity block, no harm done.

    Beautiful quilts!!! My good friend Karen, who taught me how to quilt, always said "there are no mistakes, it only makes it unique!". I still hear that everytime I make a blunder. LOL :-)

    Love the applique one. Would never have thought to do each leaf in a different fabric - but the look is great!

    I JUST LOVE THIS BOARD!!!!!!!!!!
