    I didn't notice anything particular on the directional prints - in fact, I didn't locate them.

    It will be a very cute quilt.

    However, the five pieces with the white background really stand out - at the moment they seemed to be clumped in the lower third and a singleton in the upper left corner. Maybe do a little rearranging of those pieces?

    I guess I'm blind. I don't see the problem. I think it looks great.

    He's going to love it! I'd say leave it as is and finish that baby!

    I love it. I just did a jar quilt and I intentionally turned some upside down. I want to see how many people will make a comment. I think you can see your quilt from all different directions this way. I say leave it. Great quilt. Lucky DH.

    I think it's fine the way it is. As others have said - directionals both ways make the quilt right side up either way you look at it.

    Thanks so much everyone, love this board!! No I'm not discouraged by what you said about never doing one before. I sewed clothes long before quilting so curves don't scare me lol but thanks for the honesty!! Going to get this put together today then decide on a border.....any ideas? Black? Blue? red? Thanks again!

    That's exactly what I was thinking.

    Love it. There is nothing wrong with having some of your prints going in different directions. Just makes it more interesting.
