the morgan quilt

(inspired by this quilt)
i thought i was going to put this away for a while, but i changed my mind and decided to just finish it!i found an 'error' in this quilt. a very minor error, that i don't really mind at all. can you see it? on the right side of the quilt, the mustardy yellow is butted right next to the aqua just above it. there should be some white in between. i can't believe i didn't notice until it was completely finished! i kind of like these kind of accidents. i like to think they give the quilt character and make it look handmade.

  1. So nice!! I love love love the wonkiness of the blocks! Really a lovely sweet quilt. And you know, I like mistakes like that too. Makes the quilt "realer" somehow.

  3. I think it looks great. I love those "mistakes", too. They give the quilts a sort of realness. Or maybe that is just my excuse!

    I've got a bunch of the Mendocino fabric on order (different colorway, though). I'm so excited to get it!

  6. It's beautiful! You're right, it's the little "mistakes" that make each quilt unique.

  7. I absolutely love the colors!

    My grandmother has always said (as her mother did) that every good quilt will have one 'mistake'.

    It seems that this quilt is very good.

  9. This quilt is gorgeous! I don't think I would have noticed any mistakes. It makes the project more charming that it's handmade, like a signature. I am growing to love these fabrics more and more.

  10. what a beautiful quilt. I just want to snuggle under it. I need to do more with white... I guess white just scares me. Maybe cause I think lime green is a neutral!

  17. It looks awesome. I love your colors and fabrics and the little square jutting out gives it just the right character. Just say that it is supposed to do that!
