One of these zigs is not like the others….

I started following Kate Conklin Designs’ blog after I stumbled across this amazingly beautiful quilt she posted a couple of months ago. When her most recent post popped up in my reader today, it couldn’t have been more timely. It’s a link to a giveaway (yay), and — the relevant part here — a question about a mistake you’ve made while quilting.

So, I’m going to post the quilt top that I finished this weekend. It is definitely not my biggest sewing mistake. And it’ll be an easy fix since I caught it before doing any basting or quilting. Take a look and maybe you’ll notice more quickly than I did that there’s something a little bit off…

My last row zags where it supposed to zig! I didn’t even notice until after I’d taken a photo, loaded it onto my computer, cropped it, and uploaded it to flickr.

Another benefit of blogging: Catching mistakes early via photographic evidence!

This quilt top was actually a breeze to put together thanks to the great tutorial on purl bee. Good thing, too, since I’m hoping to do two of them, each with different colored zigs, for my twins-on-the-way.

I have been doing some other baby sewing, too, but I’ll have to wait until the nursery is set-up to show off things like crib bedding. And I keep thinking that it’ll be so much more fun to take pictures of the pairs of pants and bloomers and other wearables after they’re on some little models than it would be to photograph them now!
