    took a wrong turn and it gave me a new quilt pattern

    I had a photo and some basic cutting directions and thought, I can do that ... and promptly started with what I thought was the proper steps... mmmm... something wasn't going together quite as it was pictured. Realized that on the photo, I thought 1 square was one color and it was actually something totally different... guess you can predict what happened next. Yep, all of it was ... well ... shall we say creatively different?

    I ended up with a top that I call Butterflies and star. I like how it ended up even if it wasn't anywhere close to what I thought I was doing.

    A lovely result. Perhaps you could show us what you were "going" to make.

    It is Great!...and totally yours. I would not be surprised if others would want to make one like it. I love the carpenter's star but I like this one just as much.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I love your happy quilt. It is when we alter the pattern just a little that we come up with a beautiful new design as you did. Great job.

    Just goes to show by turning a pattern a different way how the pattern can best suit others. Somebody was guiding you saying let's try this instead. Looks beautiful.

    great new design
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
