    it is not noticeable enough to really worry about. You could easily disguise it with a touch of embroidery around the edge and no one would be any wiser.

    Yes, we had a woman who was formerly Amish talk to our guild, and she said that stuff about the Amish making a "mistake" on purpose is not true. In the first place, if you do it on purpose, its not a mistake. Secondly, to assume that OUR perfection would even come near that of God's, and that we would have to mess up our "perfect" quilts so we don't embarrass God, is ludicrous.
