    A tale of two finishes

    Yesterday was a very productive day here!

    Cheryl finished piecing the Railroad quilt for my great-nephew. Here is the result.

    The colors turned out to mesh very well, and the border really sets it off. Everyone's advice and comments definitely helped it to be the best quilt it could be.

    I also was able to get a top finished. I have no name for this quilt other than "Practice" because the main goal was to figure out the Square on Point blocks and trying to make them match the four-patch. The fabric I used was some clearance Civil War fabric from the Choice brand that I have in my stash. I think it turned out OK, even if I did mess up the block on the upper right side (it doesn't follow down the row diagonally like I had designed it). I ignored the perfectionist voice in my head and said "to heck with it. For a practice quilt, it's just fine." It was nice to get something completed. Cheryl will use it to practice on her FMQ.

    Love the railroad quilt! It is a nice handsome quilt for a guy. I had to look a couple of times for your mistake on #2. Barely noticeable. But those are good quilts for practice on FMQing! Two good finishes!

      My goodness, you two are quick! Those are both great. The railroad one is just like your design. Love your choices. The fabrics go well together. Cheryl did a great job piecing it. Yours too...I had to look amd look to find that oops. Not noticeable unless you point it out. Nice job Rob!
      Rainy days are for quilting. Thank goodness I live in a rainforest! 😁

              The railroad quilt came out great. Cheryl and you are a great team.

              I had to look a long time to see your "alternate" choice in the practice piece. Came out well.

                They are both great. And, like the others, I had to really study to find the "mistake". It isn't noticeable at all.

                        Love the railroad quilt. Your Gnephew should be proud to have it.
                        As to the practice quilt, well our eyes and brain have the ability to correct a "mistake." That is why others don't see it as you do. Nice design, BTW.
                        No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.

                          I REALLY had to look hard to see where #2's mistake was, barely noticeable. Great job you two.
                          Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

                            Turned out great and wonderful! I had to look for the "mistake" once you mentioned it. It's not noticeable...it's a design decision. Great quilts!!
