Welcome to In The Boon Docks
For Le Challenge - Rising Sun
(Look hardly any snow left from yesterday, but more expected tonight)
I made this quilt for the "Wake Up To Kona" Blog Hop! I named it "No one is Perfect but God"! The reason for the name was a discussion David (8) and I had over a mistake I made on this quilt. He was very disturbed that I mixed my yellows on the bottom row insisting I make it perfect! I told him nothing is ever perfect if you look hard enough you can find something wrong with everything. So, we should always try to look for the beauty in everything and everyone we look at and not for the mistakes. My color mixup was just a happy accident and that "No one is perfect but God". I don't know if I should have told him all that over a quilt but trying to teach children to be kind to all and there is beauty in everything (even with mistakes). You do not need to strive to be perfect just do your best. One persons best may not be as good as someone else's best! Etc..
Now about this quilt, should I rename it? I have another problem, I quilted it and I am not happy at all with my quilting but I love the quilt top! Do I pick it all out and send it to my longarmer friend and get it professionally quilted? You will not hurt my feeling and I appreciate the advice!
