Did you see it?

Did you see the mistake in the log cabin quilt? Did you?
I didn't, until someone sent me an email and commented on the 'playful touch' on the quilt! And once I had seen it, I couldn't NOT see it anymore. Strange...
I know there are quilts that have deliberate mistakes, but I corrected this one - it wasn't deliberate after all.
And I sewed a red border on it:

Now I need to buy fabric for a black and white border, and then I'll sandwich and quilt it... Don't know yet how I will quilt it and would be very grateful if you have a suggestion!

Didn't see it until you said about it! This quilt is stunning!

Didn't see it until you said it. I like it very much.

I like it better this way, just like you :-).

I didn't see it until you pointed it out....I couldn't have left it either. As for the quilting, a really simple but effect way is using your walking foot with the pressure reduced to allow you to gently meander from corner to corner in each block across one diagonal and then repeating across the other diagonal.

Something meandering looks good with log cabins softening the angles. You can do all sorts of good things cos it is such a small quilt - now to fire that one up into something about 2m square...?
It is lovely!

I didn't see it either, but agree that it looks better now. Groetjes uit Parijs
