    Default That OOPS Feeling!

    So I finished this quilt top last week and just now inserted a photo in an email to a friend.

    I was looking at the picture before hitting the Send button. For some reason I decided to compare my quilt against the pattern I followed (MSQC Night Sky from BLOCK) and realized mine is all wrong!!!

    Luckily this was not a gift for anyone; I'd finally found a pattern that seemed perfect for a layer cake I'd been hoarding. At least my major error is symmetrical - I cannot abide lack of symmetry - so I will live with it and call it a variation on the Night Sky pattern.

    I hope I'm not alone in making such a silly (and now glaringly obvious) mistake. Anyone else? Anyone? Bueller?

    Don't be too hard on yourself. I go with the saying :"My Quilt My rules" Such a nice design you came up with. Very pretty

    No worries. If you repeat an error it is a "design decision" So there you go.

    I think it looks just fine and no one else would notice unless maybe someone who made Jenny's. Great color choices. Quilters change parts of original patterns all the time.

    I see it (only because you said to look), but I also like it very much.

    I think variations in a quilt help to make them truly your own! Great job!
