    Re: We all make mistakes!

    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!

    Muted isn't necessarily bad, I think it will turn out nice. And whoever gets it will surely love it.
    And it will be DONE so one less UFO to haunt you. :-)

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

    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.

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

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

    Hugs,

    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.

    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!
