I have read and I am sure you have too, that quilters of old, would purposely put a block in their quilt, turned the wrong way or pieced incorrectly. This supposedly was to keep the quilter 'humble". I now know that that is not correct, it because they did not have a digital camera or an iPad! lol I never noticed two mistakes until I took photos of my Smokey Mountain Stars quilt.
|Two mistakes on the top row.|
|Mistakes fixed and now I can say I have a finished top.|
I will work on piecing a backing over the weekend, I may use the blue plaid in the photo below as part of the backing. I had planned to use it for my border on SMS, but it just did not look right.
|I had always planned on using this blue plaid for the border on SMS, but it just did not look right.|
As I sewed the blocks and rows together for SMS I started sewing together my Lozenge blocks together into rows.
