A little Munch, a little Photoshopping.
You know how it goes.
You get the whole thing quilted and bound
Your best friend points out a tiny mistake.
Today's quilters may take the offending piece out.
But in the past ...
One wonders if she even noticed it.
There was a time a few years ago when quilt aficionados believed these errors to be deliberate.
"In keeping with the tenets of her religion she carefully incorporated a 'mistake' in each quilt," according to a 1982 advertisement in The Clarion.
You don't hear that explanation so much these days,
which is probably a good thing.
Who can interpret the intentions of an unknown quilter?
Sometimes, stuff just happens.
You see these errors in all kinds of pattern,
But some designs are particularly difficult to keep oriented...
Easily running amuck.
(There's more than one little error in the blue and white Drunkards' Path.)
