    Yes, we had a woman who was formerly Amish talk to our guild, and she said that stuff about the Amish making a "mistake" on purpose is not true. In the first place, if you do it on purpose, its not a mistake. Secondly, to assume that OUR perfection would even come near that of God's, and that we would have to mess up our "perfect" quilts so we don't embarrass God, is ludicrous.

    I've also talked to Amish women about this, and you are correct, it is not true. It must be really frustrating to have that hoax constantly perpetrated.

    Maybe if you marked where the mistake is we would see it but I see nothing wrong with it.

    The little extra tuck-under is a point at the top right of the inside white piece. It took me a long time to find it, and it's not that bad. It looks Great! and Beautiful!

    Well, I have to tell you that I don't see anything wrong with your appliqued piece. Granted I need new glasses and I'm developing cataracts, (my feeble attempt at humor) but it's beautiful. I don't think anyone else can see a flaw either. I'm a perfectionist myself, but there comes a time to just let it go. It's beautiful and I love your fabric.

    I'm glad it's official the Amish says it's not true. I never believed the Amish did that anyway but never met a Amish person to find out.
    Got fabric?

    Took me two minutes to find the problem----------after you told me. Don't bother with fixing it.

    Love the block! If it really bothers you maybe you could add an embellishment to that corner. Or have it be like others have suggested - your Amish mistake.

    thank you, rush! we live in an area with quite a few amish and they have told me the same thing! they would never compare their work to God's. just another urban/ rural myth.
    one thing i do think is true, comes from the egyptians. when they are making a textile they run a thread out the outside edge so that any negative thoughts or anger they might have felt while making the piece has a way out and does not go to it's new owner. i think that's a run on sentence, but i hope it's understandable.
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.

    It sounds like no one looking closely at your block can see the mistake. I certainly think with the expertise of the ladies on this board, telling you it won't be noticed/we don't see it, forget about it. I still remember an early art class in college. We were all told to draw this table monstrosity, then we had to put our drawings up and the class had to critic the work. I was one of the first, and I said I thought it was off, crooked--my teacher a bit of a snooty guy, looked at me and said it is not off. It was well done. You could have knocked me over with a feather. We critic ourselves way too hard. You know, if this had been put up by anyone else you too would find no fault in their work.
    Keep away from people who belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too can become great. Mark Twain
