Let me introduce you to... my humble quilt.
This pattern, comprised of 2" paper-pieced house blocks, was from Miniature Quilts a few years ago. It's perfect! Except for the puckered borders, the outside-the-lines machine quilting, the mismatched points, the whacked binding, the skewed fence, the cut-off branches...
Where is it? Bottom of the cedar chest? Nope. Hanging in my office at work. Anytime I get a little cocky, I look up at it, shake my head, and get back to work.
Have you ever made a mistake (or a plethora of them) and left it in?
Still working on my TIS stitchy.
