    The presentation of the quilt with the error was tonight. The couple was so busy reading all the messages and admiring the quilt no one noticed my error!! All that feeling sick for nothing. You were all correct - it did not matter. Thank you for all the encouragement and sympathy. It's nice to know that others make mistakes also. This board is so wonderful. The highlight of many of my days!

    You could always tell them that it was done on purpose, in the Amish tradition! Looks great anyways!

    I just LOVE wheres Waldo, find the mistake!! Takes me forever to find it!
    I think mistakes add character, makes them a little different.
    I like it in everyone elses quilts, but in my own it drives me NUTS!!!
    If only I could think they are neat when I do it.......

    Love the quilt, glad it all worked out. I think it is perfect!

    As Freddy Moran says, "never point out your mistakes..."

    Mistake? Who says it's a mistake? I think it gives more character to your quilt. WELL DONE!!!

    I had to look for it also, took a minute to find! I have heard it said of both the Amish and the Indians that you are supposed to make a mistake in everything you do. Your quilt is beautiful, I really love your colors!

    My friend and quilting mentor always told me that 'mistakes' were 'God's eye'...no one except God and each quilt should always have a mistake.
