Coincidence

It was only a coincidence.

There I was happily quilting away on my little blue/green HSTs. You know, the one Hubby thinks is my coolest quilt ever. And the one where he thought I should have matched up the background circles? (By the way, I told him he could make the quilt himself next time if he thinks that's ever going to happen.)

I'm busy twisting and turning the quilt as I add the straight line quilting when I notice this:


And this:


Out of 272 blocks I managed to match up these two seams, without even trying. That counts for something, right?

Wow! That is so funny that you got the print to match up without even trying. Love the squiggle one :)

Wow! It makes one wonder how random things ever are.

You are a quilt goddess. If I tried to match them up, I couldn't! Love it.

Becky said...

haha - silly hubby - match up the circles! that's near impossible. I love the ones that loop up and down though - cool!!

Jean said...

I can't wait to see the whole quilt. I love the few glimpses you have given us.

Awesome! Happy accident :)

That's cause for a grand happy dance!

Actually much cooler since it's unintentional... It makes it like a DVD Easter egg in quilt form.

Hee! That is awesome. And hilarious, given your DH's comment about matching the circles! :D

Oooo... that first one is groovy. Maybe you could go back, rip everything apart, and resew it all to get that effect on each seam.
