Blue Buds

I took this photo well over a month ago, but simply forgot to post it.

This quilt was worked on during the period when my Mom was dealing with breast cancer and my mind was pre-occupied and not enough attention was paid to the placement of the appliqué pieces. The appliqué is a bit crooked in a few places and I’m OK with that. In the past, those areas would have been ripped out and re-sewn. Now, I find that it’s not the end-of-the-world if my quilts are a bit wonky as there are more important things to fret over.

This pattern was designed using EQ5. The appliqué block was altered to make it my own design and there is a lot of hand quilting in this quilt.

Have a great day!

It's beautiful. I agree that a bit of wonkiness gives a quilt some character. I'm sure the mistakes are small because I can't see them in the photo.

Your quilt is beautiful...especially since blue is my favorite color. I can see some of the lovely hand quilting when I enlarge the photo. It looks so nice in your dining room.

What a beautiful testimony to the fact that there are things that are more important than the perfect block. Although I don't see the imperfections!

Lovely!

This quilt is gorgeous.
When I enlarge the pic I don't see mistakes and if there are ......it's a characteristic.
