    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.

    Don't beat yourself up over it. Your quilt is lovely! No one else will know the difference.

    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!
