    Your post reminded me of a trip that I took with our grandson when he was three. My Brother-in-law had built all of his kitchen cabinets. My grandson get staring at them and finally said "why are all the knobs on the right except for this one". My BIL admitted he had made a mistake and nobody would notice.
    If it bothers you fix it. I would have the recipient look at it and see if he makes any comment.

    take a picture from a distance so you can see the entire quilt in one shot... then if it still bothers you take it out. I really don't think your 6 yr old is going to care ;-)

    I would take the 2 blocks out and flip them, other wise they will haunt you. others may not notice, but you will see them always. enjoy the quilt. :thumbup:

    Things like that bother me a lot so I would redo it but if they don't bother you don't redo it. Honestly I had a hard time seeing the difference. The quilt is beautiful and that is what matters.

    I agree -- your son won't notice. Plus, keep in mind that patterns (in my mind) are guidelines. This makes your quilt "unique" because it's a little different. Don't stress - your son will love it.

    I made a quilt for my son and it's like a blankie to him even though he's 26 now. When he comes home for a visit, he brings it with him. Lord knows how many mistakes I made on that one (it's my avatar) but he loves it anyway.

    Your call...your son will love it regardless. Because his mommy made it and it's cuddley! I have been told (and admit to it) that I am an obsessive perfectionist. Wish I could put that aside because it's not conducive to getting things done quickly.

    If I haven't quilted it yet I would rip it out and change it. I just finished a quilt and after taking a picture to put on the board I saw a mistake where I had a piece turned the wrong way. Can't do anything about it now but knowing it is there is bugging me.

    Since the fabric has a mottled effect, it really doesn't stand out that it is in the wrong place. I'd leave it.

    call it scrappy, call it good. No one but you will ever know. If it messed with the pattern, something actually turned wrong, change it, but those two reds are so similar, you are fine. :-D

    It would bug ME so I would redo it. But I have a low tolerance level for my own imperfection.

    I would redo it because it will always bug you!! I made a quilt for my sister and flipped a part of a block. Did not notice until I was almost done hand quilting it. Had to take out the quilting around the area, take out the patch and ended up appliquing it back in and re-quilting. I knew I would always know where this error is and it would bother me! Just me :oops: :wink: :oops:

    i would fix it since it isn't a big deal to rip out the stitches and fix it now.

    I had to look at the pictures for 10 minutes to figure out what was wrong...now do you think that your son or anyone else is going to find that exact spot in the quilt and say to you..."aha,you made a mistake". No, they are not!!!!! They are going to be looking at the whole quilt and say "WOW, what a beautiful quilt!!!" Call it your Amish mistake and move on....only God is perfect. From what I see, it IS a beautiful quilt...sit back and admire what you created....a work of art!!!!!!

    I scanned all 5 pages here, hoping you had posted a pic of the entire quilt top. I'd hang it up on the design wall and stand across the room. If the mistake is noticeable, I'd rip it out and fix it!
