Humility Blocks

According to, or perhaps in spite of, this quilting myth, my mistakes aren't such a bad thing.

A few mornings ago, I was watching an episode of "Love of Quilting" on t.v., in which half-square triangles were being discussed. Marianne Fons cautioned viewers to check and then re-check our work to make sure the assembled blocks were properly placed to ensure that no errors were made. Then she slyly said, with a little grin, something like, "…although some quilters do it on purpose."

I had to laugh. Ms. Fons was referring to humility blocks. I immediately thought of a visit from Sarah, one of Josie's college friends, who also is a quilter. I had just finished my first king-size quilt, a nine-patch design with appliquéd butterflies in five of the patches. It was serving as a bedspread on Josie's bed, and I took Sarah to see it. In less than a minute, Sarah pointed to a block and asked if it was a humility block.

This surprised me. I asked Sarah what a humility block was. She explained that only God is perfect, so it is a quilting tradition to make sure that there is an error in the quilt. Only then did I realize that one of the butterfly patches was upside down. I was mortified and confessed that I hadn't noticed the error. That was about 20 years ago.

Over time, I also heard that humility blocks were an Amish tradition, that they usually were placed in the lower right corner of the quilt, and that the error could be a misplaced patch, a single patch with a mismatched fabric color, or an error in the quilting pattern.

When the t.v. program ended, I went to my sewing machine, where I was working on a nine-patch quilt top design with half-square triangle patches in the upper right and lower left corners of each block. Four rows of the quilt were completed, and sure enough, the colors in one half-square patch in the middle of the second row were upside down.

I immediately began "reverse sewing" (e.g., ripping out) that patch. It was time consuming and a royal pain to do. I did it, not because I thought my quilt should be perfect or out of a refusal to be humble, but because I have so many other mistakes that I have to try to hide. I hold a Master's degree in bad cutting (my squares tend to be mildly trapezoid) and a PhD in bad sewing (I can't manage an absolutely straight seam) from my imaginary quilt college. My quilts are never absolutely square or absolutely rectangular. When hung on the wall, they rarely hang straight.

When I took a break from the machine, I sat in my living room and gazed at one of my almost-masterpieces. I had designed the quilt around an Indonesian batik panel with a hand-painted cat on it. The batik's background colors are in a circular rainbow, and I had pieced blocks around the panel to echo the rainbow. After a minute or two, in the lower right corner of the quilt, I saw, for the first time, a block in which I had reversed the colors. Oh, my!

Well, my computer was, handily, on a table next to my chair, so I decided to research "humility blocks." There are hundreds of entries on the web for this subject. I read the first dozen of them and learned from each that such blocks are not a tradition: they are a quilting myth.

Hart Country Quilts, Machine Quilting in the 19th Century, , cites quilt historian Barbara Brackman, whose research indicated that there is no mention of humility blocks as late as the 1970s, but by 1988, this seemed to be commonly accepted lore among quilters. The article states, "The first published reference she found to the "humility block" custom is in Florence Peto's 1949 book American Quilts and Coverlets, in relation to one piece of chintz in one quilt…."

The consensus of the web articles is that it is very hard not to make a mistake on a quilt. Some even state that such mistakes lend to the charm of the quilt! So here I sit, gloating as I write this: my so-called humility blocks - my mistakes - perhaps are not such a bad thing. I have no need to claim even a high school diploma for that.
