Rob’s Green Star Quilt

I started to make this quilt from a pattern I got out of Liberty Love.  I had a lot of green fabric left over from a few quilts, but did have to purchase some extra.  I had a lot of fun making this!  I am going to make it again in different colors at some point, because I like it that much.

Unfortunately after I finished it, I noticed a tear  in a stitch in one of the stars at the seam.  It was about 2.5″ long and I honestly couldn’t fix it since it was already all done.  You can see it in these pictures between Rob’s one folded arm up by his head.  I hand stitched it up but it was so sad looking and noticeable.  I am not one who is good with needle work other than doing the binding for the quilt.  I had made mentions while working on the quilt how it would match our bedroom walls (a dark colonial green) and Rob agreed.

Rob therefore claimed it for himself after my great disappointment in my mess up.  He said it was “Wabi sabi” – where he valued and enjoyed the imperfection, making him like it more.  I found it very odd, but I love how supportive he is of my work.  Look how comfortable he is on it.  These pictures totally capture Rob.  He is really into the art of doing nothing.Processed with VSCO with c1 presetProcessed with VSCO with c1 presetProcessed with VSCO with c1 presetProcessed with VSCO with c1 presetProcessed with VSCO with c1 preset
