    I'm making the argument when DH gets home from work that I don't want a design wall, I *need* one. Below I show you Exhibit A. The sad part is, we both looked it over as it was laid out - so in my house at least, 2 heads are not always better than one!

    If I see what I think you see your lower right green is turned not going like the rest. But it took me a second since I was focused on the red.

    Izy, I love your word - you're right, the 4 corners are squiffy! I actually wanted them to be like the lower right, and could have lived with them if they had been all the same no matter which direction they went. The mitered borders are already on; I may just chalk this one up as an everyday throw.

    reneebobby, I think when we were looking at it we did the same thing; focused on the red to make sure the star pattern came out. There was an initial problem with the center (1st layout looked like a swastika) and we focused on fixing that. Poor corners were obviously left to fend for themselves!

    I think your quilt is very pretty, I could live with the corners the way they are as beautiful as your quilt turned out :D :D I think it would make for an interesting name for the quilt, like: took the wrong turn, twisted corners, twist and turn, anyway it would be a way of making a mistake into a new quilt design :D :D :D
