    Default Thank goodness for these photos! I see my mistake..

    I took the photo to show a friend how my comfort quilt is going, and low and behold, I see in the photo what I didn't see on the wall. I sewed the top and bottom of the RW&B together with one upside down!!
    Thank goodness I can repair this mistake before sewing the right and center panels together, or worse, after doing the quilting!!

    I've added a closeup of the 2 Army Stars before I added them to the center panel just to see them.

    I am excited about this quilt because this is the first thing I've sewn since losing my sister back in August. I'm so happy to be back in the stitch of things. Hugs and smiles!

    Love the blocks! I think I see the "problem". The flag fabric with the white background shows twice in a row, on the second and third row. It took a while. In my eyes, it's a minor thing.

    Sorry for your loss of your sister. I'm glad you are getting back into the quilting room. Your eyes are better than mine, I couldn't see the mistake.
