Isn't it an Amish belief that only God can create perfection and so they make a small mistake in their quilts to remind themselves of this. This may be an older belief and seen in older quilts.

Love both the quilt and the story. The life lessons are ones we should all learn.

There is a term--wabisabi- -that refers to something that maybe chipped, worn, dinked or dented, but it still has use and value. Barbara is right, the student did not deserve such a treasure.

They need to find a way to remove that (I need to do everything perfectly DNA) and this world will be a better happier place. Almost every one of us has it. I loved the story.
