Plaid Ponies = Huge Mistake!!!!

It took some time, but I finally finished.  Between the piecing and quilting this quilt took some time.  I was so excited when I took the quilt off the frame and was shocked to see 

 A Huge -- Beginner Mistake!
It was all quilted before I noticed it!!!!!! 
Can you find it????  Ugh!! 

I must have looked at this quilt on my design wall for days....Nope didn't see anything.  I thought about taking the whole quilt apart, but decided against that. 

I asked my friend to find the mistake and she couldn't see it. Thank Goodness this is not the first quilt I made for her.  I had to point out that row one and two are not in the right order....  She didn't care, she loved it anyway!!   

 I stitched in the ditch for most of this quilt.  I wanted to keep is simple since it's a very busy quilt. 

Outer border strips

I called my friend about the name.  I wanted to double check the spelling of the Baby's name.  She told me it was correct.  I saw her a week or two after the quilt was done ..... Guess What .... It was spelled wrong!  I knew it...  I told her I would make her a new quilt label when she got the correct spelling, but she said... don't worry. It should have been Gabriel.


  1. I cannot tell you how long I have been looking for this quilt pattern. I bought the booklet about 13 years ago, but during a move some years back, it accidentally got thrown away. I have been periodically scouring the Internet thinking that SURELY someone would post about making it and until tonight have been unsuccessful. I was wondering if you would consider scanning the instructions and snailing them to me? Just let me know. If you don't feel comfortable doing that I understand, but I figured it was worth asking. My email is Thanks.

  2. Copyright laws do not allow this, BUT I did contact the quilt designer. Keep your fingers crossed that she says yes! It really is a cute quilt, and you have been looking for it for such a long time!
