    I love looking at old fabrics in quilts. I only found 2 mistakes. Beautiful quilt.

    I would too. People used to put a mistake on purpose.

    My sentiments exactly. It's beautiful as is.

    I certainly would not correct the blocks....that is the history of the quilt. Old quilts often had mistakes as do one's we often make. This just adds authenticity to the quilt. My personal opinion but Zone i believe a quilt historian would agree with.

    I found them, but I don't think I would fix them either!

    I had to look for them, but I found them. I like the quilt too. Good find.

    I love your quilt top. It looks like a easy fix if you want to do it.

    Great buy. Yes the mistakes are easy to find but why fix them-they are part of the history of the quilt?
