REAL HUMILITY

I am embarrassed to say that I never noticed the block that got turned until a few of you mentioned it in the comments. At first I thought you were noticing that one block is missing the blue center. But someone said "yellow block" and I thought, "WHAT"? Ahem. Yes, let's say that makes it uniquely mine. Ha! Well, that's better than calling it a reject! Thanks everyone for your very kind words. :-P

I had someone point out a turned block on one of my quilts I'd posted - I knew it was turned wrong before quilting it but it was in the center of the quilt and I wasn't taking it out! The idea of a humility block works for me and I don't even have to make a mistake on purpose - I usually manage one without even trying.

Well, now I had to go searching to find the blocks. I still think the quilt looks just dandy. A hide and seek game for the baby later on *s*

Marci I really like that baby quilt and I hadn't even noticed it. It's easy to miss, I like the way the yellow looks with it and I think I will make one myself. After I'm done with every quilt I don't even want to look for mistakes for fear of finding a big one I can't fix but then nothing is perfect so I just blow it off if I do find some.

Marcie, we were not being critical---who hasn't done something just like that!

Ond of my friends who was the most meticulous of piecers did something similiar and one of that last pictures we have of her is pointing out the turned log cabin block---and it was already quilted!! I know she would have took it out and turned it around had she seen it because it was on the edge of the quilt next to her border.

I think it is pretty arrogant to say you deliberately had to make a mistake---shoot, it happens without us even trying.

Oh goodness... I didn't even notice that one of the 9-patches doesn't have a blue center. Things that make you go hmmm! :) Anyhow, that red patch blends in very well, along with the yellow blocks... so all is good in the end! :)

gee, I'm glad other people do the same thing as me! Sometimes you are so busy focusing on other things, you overlook the obvious. Besides, the camera makes things stand out in a heartbeat. Although I didn't see it--only when I read the comments did I have to go back and look for it!

Shows how observant I am - I didn't even notice it. I knew what it was supposed to look like, so that's what my eyes saw. just call it your little burst of creative rebellion!

Sometimes I will make a glaringly obvious mistake on a block - and I never take it out! I just put it all down to - that is what happens when you are sewing with a toddler underfoot - and I am going to use that excuse for as long as I can, LOL!

Cheers!

obviously the turned block is unimportant then! Enjoy that you've made a unique quilt.

Bonnie said...

Well now, I am one of those who studied the quilt thinking that I might like to try that pattern and NEVER noticed the error. And now that the "incorrect" block has been pointed out, I can't believe I missed it. Yes, it is now uniquely yours and your special design element.

Same here. I thought what a great little quilt thinking I would make one, and didn't notice either block - intentional or not!
