QA on Saturday

You think a Cat doing Quality Assurance is an easy job? Sure, I get to check for good design, great colors, softness, kindness, happiness. Yes, I make sure my smell is on everything, so cats will make sure to cover it up with their own (this is my own special way of making sure cats take ownership of their Gizzy quilts.)

Well, sometimes it means telling Mom she goofed. Remember that design she planned for the back of the “Slashed Squares Quilt”? The one where the backing was a big block? Well, the design was good, but when Mom got up this morning and sewed it together, she goofed big time.

Check this out. Can you see what she did? Here’s a picture of the way it is supposed to be to help you figure it out.
So she had to take it apart and sew it back together the right way.

(sigh!)

Mom says this is the last time she's ever going to get tricky on the back of a quilt.

Your Mom is very talented Millie! She is also very fortunate to have such a good inspector living with her.

I think it looks fine to me. As long as it works as a quilt, it's cool. Now maybe you could send your mom over to my mom to teach her how to sew. That way she could make us some kitty quilts as well. :)

We can see the differences, but we cant tell what was wrong about the first one...

Mom says that when she used to make quilts, some of her very favorites were the ones that had oopsies in them. And she never unsewed a pieced back!

The person getting the quilt would never notice, but she would tell them anyway, just so it came with a story.

I love quilts but I just don't have the patience for it.

Mom says patience has nothing to do with it if you like what you're doing.

Nice pick up Millie - we can see why your Mom needs you in charge of QA.
