I looked at your photographs several times and could not see what could be wrong. I like your work. I would be tempted to tear it out but would talk myself out of it. It looks great.

Your using good quality fabrics. Your son will have this quilt for a long, long time. When he gets older, he will look at it and say my mom loved me so much that she made this quilt for me. He's not going to see a seam that isn't lined up, a color that doesn't match, a thread that you can see, a line that got quilted across or anything else that you find is 'imperfect'. You will always be perfect in his eyes. Like someone said, 'Don't sweat the small stuff'. This is for him. He will treasure it. I think it's beautiful just the way it is.

Its not a mistake its a new adventure you created something for your son who will love it just the way it is and never tell everyone about it, who will even know.
Its a beautiful quilt, don't worry about it no how.

I had to look at it for quite a while before I saw what your talking about. I would leave it and if someone notices it I would tell them you did it on purpose. All of my quilts have a block that is off, turned wrong or inverted colors because I refuse to make anything perfect. Plus it is fun for the recipient to try and to find the flaw.

I don't know of many 6 year olds whose quilts survived so well that when they were older they could tell such subtle differences. This is assuming the quilt is one you want him to love and use and to not display permanently on his bedroom wall to show his love for you.

He's a kid who I bet knows he is well loved.

Can't get much better than that.

Offhand, I don't see it -

but if it bugs you - then change it - it would probably take you less than 30 minutes to undo it and resew it -

and if you asked - I think it's bothering you -

On almost every question similar to yours, many say "it's fine" - and very few (comparatively speaking) say "change it"
