what's wrong with this picture?

Well, maybe my great-nephew Yehuda will not mind that this baby quilt top isn't entirely crooked. It began as just random-cut strips but then suddenly the rest of it isn't quite crooked enough and so the middle looks like a mistake. It isn't. The straight sides are the mistake. Oh, dear. The kid is almost 6 months old and I am just getting to doing this. I swore I would never make another baby quilt, but gee - this is my first great-nephew, and he lives across the planet, so I figure he should have something from me. Well, the back will be better - or maybe this will be the back. Whatever. I must finish this before the week is out and get it mailed.

He'll love it, & I understand what you're saying about not crooked enough because I did a similar thing once, but I don't think it looks like a mistake at all, it looks Liberated!

He will love it; his mom will love it; I love it! The quilt my great Aunt made for me was worn to rags.
