    I get this all put together and realize one set of blocks is facing the wrong way.......is it obvious enough to tear out and re-do? It is going to be a gift, but I very seriously doubt the mother knows anything about quilting...... Tell me now before it's too late :)

    If I was going to sit and study it, I'd probably find it. As it is, I don't see it.

    Is it going to bother you? If so, re-do it. If not, let it go! :)

    Took me a bit to spot it so I don't think it's too bad, especially if the person you are giving it to doesn't sew.

    BKinCo....Don't worry about it. First, the quilt is so busy it isn't obvious. Second, a busy mother of a baby isn't going to have time to make sure everything is perfect. Also, did you know that the Amish usually incorrectly put in a block intentionally because in their belief, no one is perfect except the Good Lord. Bind it up and give it to the mom-to-be and don't give it another thought. Lois

    If you're going to have to look at it, it'll bug you forever. Take it out... :(

    It took me a while to find it. I'd let it go. If it's not noticed, well and good. If it is noticed it will make a conversation tidbit and maybe become a game where others try to find it. So it's good either way.

    I can't even find it!! She'll never notice. I made a quilt with an appliqued butterfly in each square. To my surprise, several weeks after it was finished, I noticed I had one of the butterflies upside down! So yours looks great.
