My faux paux

Over on Randi’s blog she showed a boo boo on her Starry Log Cabin and I thought I would share mine. This is the first quilt I ever made. It is called Oak Leaves and even the quilter didn’t catch it. It was probably on my bed 3 to 4 months before I noticed it.

See if you can find it.

    LOL! I love hearing that others also just see what they are expecting to see—makes me feel so better that I’m in such good company.

    My quilt has had that boo boo for 13 years and it just wouldn’t look right without it.

    I LOVE it! It’s a great quilt and the little ‘boo-boo” really adds that touch of whimsy to it. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks Christine. It’s a good thing I never claimed to perfect because I’m not!

    Freda, I love the look of this quilt totally, Turned sideways block and all. I did a snails trail as a wedding gift once and it had the center of one block turned the wrong way. It took the recipient 6 years to finally find it. I mentioned it to her shortly after they were married. I posted a booboo a couple of weeks ago on a churndash top I have finshed and it will be quilted as is! I like what Christine said about adding whimsy!

    It is whimsy for sure Diane. I don’t blame you, I would quilt it as is too.

    And who says everything has to go in the same direction? 😉 Very nice quilt for your first one.
