    WOW - excellent fix. You could have a new profession. That isn't going to show at all. You did a great job of fixing your "boo boo". I wouldn't worry about it at all. Your quilt is gorgeous.

    Ah, okay, now I see the boo boo (and that's only after magnifying the close-up image a few times).

    First off, I wouldn't call it a newbie mistake. I'm sure there are plenty of experienced quilters right here on this board, if not this thread, who have uttered some pretty colorful language when something like this happens.

    And it does happen.

    I usually start hopping up and down, cursing ....well, never mind, I'm sure you can use your imagination. It ain't pretty. And it takes a long time to get over my stupidity. :wink:

    The only piece of advice I could give you, if it really, really bothers you, is to get a fine black Sharpie pen, and use it to go over the zig-zag thread on the black fabric. I often use this method myself. Do the same for the green fabric with a green pen. The thread doesn't show up so much on the pink fabric.

    But that's only if it's driving you insane. It's impossible to even see on the first picture, and one really has to look for it in the close-up. And if it's going to be wallhanging(?), hang it with that block at the top.

    It's a lovely quilt. Enjoy it and move on to your next project.

    Wow, you guys are so encouraging, I feel so much better now, I am going to take your advise with the colored ink, I tried to use a neutral thread color but fixing it on the darker fabrics would be better. I am giving it to my daughter ( a non quilter) and am not going to tell her about it, so hopefully she will enjoy it. Thanks again all. Rita

    I think you did a great job fixing it! Don't worry about it. We have enough things "wrong" with us without pointing out our mistakes to others. :)

    I'm sorry I guess I am not experienced enough to see your mistake. I think your quilt is awesome.

    It looks beautiful I cannot see any error. No hand made quilt is "perfect". You did a great job. Enjoy

    A blind man running for his life will never notice, quit looking at it. Some cultures make a mistake on purpose to prove they aren't perfect like the Lord, only he is perfect.
