    A BIG oops ~ Can't believe I didn't spot it sooner

    Just finished piecing this. Showed it to my quilting buddy and teacher. Put the borders on and none of us saw the big oops until I put it on bed to take a picture. Thank HEAVEN I did and found the oops before it was quilted. Angels watching out for me because the inspector didn't point it out! Will fix then take to get quilted.

    I'm so glad you spotted it before quilting! I hope the fix isn't too difficult. It will be gorgeous when you finish. I love bargellos and hearts are my favorite.

    Oops! A broken heart! Beautiful quilt. I just love those little oopsies that appear, but don't know if I could leave it there myself.

    Beautiful quilt & the oop's could be your special signature. :~) Looks to be an easy fix.

    LOL! This is probably one oops you can't get away with! Your quilt inspector loves it anyway! Beautiful quilt, btw. I love bargellos and have made several myself!

    Oh man, glad you spotted it before quilting! If you put a point on the the other side it would kind of look like cupid's arrow.

    Most of us have been their. I had two quilts quilted and then discovered the errors! Oh well they say nothing is perfect! You are lucky you can fix it

    Oh no, glad you found it before it was quilted - it's lovely!

    I did a customer quilt once. She was featured quilter for our show that year, and it wasn't until it was hanging in her display in the show that any of us saw that she had a piece in one of her blocks turned the wrong way! We just didn't tell anyone, and it wasn't really that noticeable, so she was okay with it.
