    The 1/4" seam is an arbitrary width. It matters if you need the pre-determined finished size that you would get using 1/4" or if you are putting together blocks that have different seam allowances. Finish the quilt with the seam allowance you've been using - it's too beautiful to stop now!

    Please continue it! It is too pretty to abandon! You might see everything that is "wrong" but most people will see how striking and beautiful it is!

    Keep going....consistency is the key. It looks beautiful and when it's done and quilted it will be a stunner.

    Consistency is what counts! The books by Harriet Hargrave are a valuable aid - Even tho I have pieced for a long time I have learned a lot from her books! (Quilter's Academy series)

    I would finish it doing just as you have been. It's just part of the process to develop more skill. More skill doesn't mean what you have done before is bad just on a different level. Celebrate where you are at and work towards improving the craftsmanship.

    By the way, I think it's awesome.

    Finish it! To pretty to quit, Just keep all your seams the same. nether you or anyone else will see the seam side, and it doesn't change the look of the Quilt, your points look like they match, everything looks like it is lining up correctly.

    I'd continue...it is beautiful and no one will know about the seam allowance unless you tell them.

    If the quilt is fitting together fine, don't worry about the seams. its more important to have consistent seams. you can adjust your needle for your next quilt
