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.
