    We all make mistakes!

    We all make mistakes ................. and this is one of mine. Its a Christmasy fabric range (probably a DD) otherwise there is no way I would have chosen it in a month of Sundays. The colours are dull red, dark green, boring cream and ice blue and one print, of tiny birds on a branch, look more like squashed flies on the windscreen (or spiders?). Can't wait to finish this lap quilt and donate it!

    I planned to do a double layer-cake but got the measurements a bit wrong so the design is not so pronounced. I've sewn the rows of blocks together - just the strips to do and the top's finished. Can't wait to see the back of it!

      Not exactly a labour of love then! ? pmsl.

      I quite like those colours though..I'm a muted colour kind of girl anyway and I think it'll look great when it's finished.

        That's pretty and I agree with being a muted color gal too. I am sure whoever receives it will love it.

            I think it turned out great. The colors are a bit muted but they work together.

                I like it, I'm a muted person also. I just made that same mistake but only for a few pieces then realized my mistake, I'm now using the "mistake" pieces for the border.
                Since you're always on my mind can you straighten out the mess up there?

                  Looks really good and I myself like the colors. Well done.

                    A quilter's mistake is really an opportunity in disguise....unique patterns make beautiful quilts!

                      Muted isn't necessarily bad, I think it will turn out nice. And whoever gets it will surely love it.

                        You're right - it definitely looks better now its sewn together and the friend that will be getting it is delighted.

                        Its not just the colours - there's one print that drives me mad. Its meant to be cute little birds on a branch but they are so small (compared to the other prints) they look like insects splatted on the car windscreen!
