Lost in Transportation

Um, oops.

Those borders are completely ass backward, and I'm not going to fix them. Even if I did buy a new (expensive!) seam ripper. It's staying in its little plastic case. This top is done.

The built up corners are hardly noticeable, might have been even less so if, ahem, I'd been flying those geese in the right direction. Such is life. When your design wall is the kitchen floor, things sometimes get lost in translation transportation. I like it anyway. I had an email from a friend asking why I didn't use the center spacer plan, but flip it so the dark was against the light and the light against the dark. I had actually considered that, but thought I really wanted the spacers to disappear, not to be a focus. Besides, when his email arrived, it was too late. I'd already jumped in with both, um, hands. (<- backwards, get it?)

There are too many seams in this beasty for me to consider hand quilting it. I'm contemplating a superimposed snowflake, but I'm not sure. I think I will let this age a bit before I jump into finishing it. Today, I get into sashing the baby quilt. Seriously.

I'm clueless. I can't tell what's "wrong" with it. I'll bet nobody else can, either.

Nothing "wrong" I just had the geese pointing the other way on the "design floor" but they got headed the other direction when they made it to the sewing machine. But like I said, I like it just fine, so it's not changing.

I think it looks good. I am one who never ever fixes a mistake, unless it affects the whole quilt. I usually make it a game, find the mistake, lol.

Call it good. Only you notice your mistakes. I think its beautiful.

Frankly, it looks fine as it is :) But it's an excellent example of why I stay away from that kind of quilt as I know I'd put everything on backwards. And then I'd either have to rip it off and put it on again (possibly backwards the second time) or it would annoy me too much. :)

It's beautiful - looks like a lot of work to put all the pieces in the right place. I don't see anything wrong with it either.

I lose a lot of pieces in translation like that too.
