This is my favorite quilt. I use this quilt each winter on my bed. It is big, warm, and soft. This quilt came about by miss cutting muslin squares I needed for another project. I cut all my squares at 51/2 instead of 61/2 which I needed. I therefore had to go buy new muslin to use and had about 30 squares all the wrong size. I therefore made this quilt with the squares. I decided to name the quilt "Opps all the way" because of the adventures in miscutting. I originally made this quilt with my niece Amie in mind but when I was completed I could not part with it. I tried it on my bed to see how it would look and have been using it the last 4 winters on my bed. I did make Amie a different quilt and gave that one to her. When I find a picture of that quilt I will post it. I think I will have to will this one to her upon my passing, if it is still around then. The reason for this post with this picture is it is just about time now to take this off the bed and replace it with a quilt that is not so warm. I will miss the quilt but be very happy when I can start using it again next fall. Hope and pray all have a good evening.

I know what you mean about missing a quilt once it comes off the bed. That's what's nice about the cold! :)
