Quilt Block Craft Fail

I’m participating in a quilt block swap on Craftster, and we’re doing these fairly simple blocks, inspired by states in the USA. This one here is Arizona, and I LOVE it (not a fail)!

I had already sewn  more than 30 of these blocks when I did this:

Oops, something’s wrong with this picture! I almost forgot to take a picture of it before I ripped it apart and redid it… but for your pleasure, I managed to snap a blurry photo.

  1. I’ll always remember visiting the John Adams house when I was a young kid, the guide talking about the exquisite hand-laid tile floor and pointing out a single imperfection in the tens of thousands of tile pieces.

    “Why didn’t they fix it?!” I asked.

    “They laid it that way on purpose,” he explained, “to symbolize their belief that man cannot be perfect — only god is perfect.”

    Quilt square fail? Okay, probably. But you could just look on it as an homage to one of our founding fathers!

    Oops, that’s just the sort of thing I’d do and then you’re left looking at it thinking…that doesn’t look *quite* right… Still, I’m sure it was really nice when you put it back correctly :)

  3. @That Kind of Girl I love the story about John Adams’ house!! Amazing!

    @ That Kind of Girl: I was about to say the same thing about the Amish. They always leave some small imperfections in their quilts for the same reason. I heart John Adams.

    @ Heather: It took me a minute to see the problem. lol.
