    I just realized that I put my blocks together wrong. Should I take them apart and correct them or finish them the way they are. I have 12 done (wrong) and 8 to go. It's the Take Five pattern.

    Depends on how bad they look TO YOU. If you can live with it, just keep going the way you have been. You can call it a "design decision". After all, lots of new quilt blocks were invented by rearranging the elements of older ones.

    If it bothers you, change it.

    It's like this: A WEED is only a plant YOU don't like.

    So if YOU like the 'new' design then keep at it. If not then change it. It'a all up to you. :)

    Depending on your fabric, you may leave them be. If the fabric is busy and you dont see a pattern, leave it alone. If you want the "stair steps" to show, you may have to rearrange them. Show us a photo for a better idea. I have done many of these and quilted even more!

    If you put blocks together wrong, the 'Take Five' pattern is the best one to do it with. Those blocks are kind of scattered anyway, in my opinion. If it looks good, leave it.

    That is what I was thinking. I have made 3 or 4 Take Fives and I think anyway you put them together would be fine.

    I've made a couple of take five quilts and you can put them together any way you like. A mistake is just another way of doing something.

    I would rip them out, because I wouldn't be happy knowing they are wrong.
