    Love your attitude - thank you! Make it happen & 'git 'er done'!
    Question: when you "sew fabric over mistakes", do you then secure it with small stitches, maybe like needleturn applique?

    I don't see it at all. If it were mine AND I planned it to be actively used, such that it would need regular washing, I MIGHT take it out and redo the block. If it were to be adorning a wall, there is no reason to do anything about it.

    I might add, my early quilts didn't look anything like that good. Give yourself a pat on the back. You deserve it.

    I can't even see any mistake. You did a really good job of it and it's not noticeable at all. You would really have to point it out since I just don't see it. :)

    Your quilt is beautiful. I didn't realize it was a log cabin until some one mentioned it.
    I made a Civil War Sampler quilt and had it in to quilt shows, not the judging kind, before a man pointed out that one of the blocks was in the wrong place. The lady that was running the show told him I did it on purpose. Of course I hadn't. Of all the people that have seen the quilt he is the only one that noticed the misplaced block.

    Quilts are made not to be perfect, only God can do that. It is a beautiful quilt and I do not see your error. Frankly my dear I am a newbie and would have never tackled such a project.

    You did great and I probably would have fixed the problem the same way. Hey, if I have a seam that will just not match up, I've been known to put an applique of something in that spot and people will say. What a nice touch, they don't know it's hiding a glaring mistake.....That's our little secret.

    I don't see your mistake. The only mistake I can see is that it's not at my house. LOL. I think it's beautiful and you should be proud of it.

    I can't see any mistake, I'd leave well enough alone. It's beautiful!

    You have made fantastic quilt. It is simply stunning. Just out of interest, Kinabalu is the name of a volcanic mountain in Indonesia and the fabric colours do remind me of Asia to some extent.

    The repair was well executed and hardly noticeable. Just wondered if the quilt has been quilted yet? If not, perhaps dense quilting will hide the cut and you may not need to colour in the stitches in the various colours that was suggested in an earlier post? Also, that will stabilise the cut.

    Well done on a lovely piece of work. :thumbup: :D

    Just like everyone else, I see no mistake. Your quilt is simply beautiful! I am really surprised that as a beginning quilter, you have done so much better then me when I first started. But I will tell you this that now that you have completed a quilt, YOUR HOOKED!!!! ;) ;-)
    And remember, your always your own worst critic. Also, I haven't seen a quilt policeman yet. :lol:

    Well, I am not going to be able to sleep tonight until I know exactly what it is that you did incorrectly? LOL From the pictures, everything looks matched up. It is a very beautiful piece of art!

    Hey Sweet, thanks for looking, I was asked , and did post a close up of my repair, it is on page 2 of this thread. See what you think, then tell me what would you have done, Make a new block? or try and slip this by. Rita

    Your quilt has such a WOW factor going for it that unless you point out the mistake...no one will know...so don't point it out! Beautiful quilt and the colors are fantastic.

    What a nice complement, I will restrain myself, I am usually quick to point my mistakes out, but I will just say thank you, I enjoyed making it. Rita

    That sure is a beauty! I had to look really hard at your close up to see your "fix". I would not have known it was there unless it was pointed out to me. Great job!
