My dad got the next finished quilt from the tops I inherited from my mother. It is a new fixture on his couch, and someone is always snuggling in it.
This was the most recent project she was working on and it was not in a completed state. I had to put some blocks and rows together and add the blue border. In that process, I didn't actually see the pattern the small squares made. I realized I had put one of the small block portions together incorrectly, long after the border was sewn. I decided to keep it that way. It is very hard to find and it makes me smile to remember how precise my mom's work was.
Some will disagree, but I believe that some mistakes help define "home-made" gifts and make them even more precious.
