    and I did indeed laugh out loud when I noticed this while quilting it - 20 blocks make up this quilt - didn't notice the piecing mistake I made in the center block showing until nearly done with the quilting. This is a quilt I started about two years ago and has to be finished before I can start a new quilt project - one of my NY resolutions to finish up at least one UFO per month. Well, mistake stays - keeping Q anyway. Just can't believe all the time spent on this quilt I never noticed it - should have at least caught it when sandwiching!

    oh - and any suggestions on color of binding?

    Well, I had to look very hard to find the mistake, so don't worry about it. Just tell everyone you meant to do that to see if they were paying attention!

    It's a beautiful quilt. Enjoy it.

    Funny how these things happen, isn't it? Your quilt is BEAUTIFUL, and if anyone asks, tell them it's your special touch on this design!

    That one block is made to use as your label. You can print you info in the white pieces in that block. It really isn't that noticeable.

    I had to really look to for the difference. Most people will not notice it Very nice quilt. I think I would go with a tan/light brown binding.

    yea i thought that too. and do have enuf of it - may lay that out with it and see how it looks if I ever get the quilting done - taking forever! Probably seems to take longer b/c I am anxious to start a new project - have one layed out ready to go so is frustrating.
