    Two blocks beside each other same color

    On Emily's wedding quilt,by Fons and Porter. I'm kinda split, maybe just be a little lazy too. Should I remove? Name:  IMG_1613.JPG

    Beautiful quilt! I must not know what you are talking about because I don't see two blocks next to each other the same color. You know what they say....if you can't see it from a galloping horse don't worry about it. NO, I would not remove whatever it is you are seeing that I am not seeing.

    I cannot find it. If it is not easily spotted by someone who is looking, I would not worry about it.

    Had you not mentioned it, and I hunted for a while, I'd never have noticed. I wouldn't worry about it.

    I've spent time looking also, and can't find "the offenders!" I see pinks and purples and blues, but they all flow so well that nothing jumps out! I say leave it!!

    I don't see anything awry either. Besides it's a wedding quilt - so it two are alike - they should be together...

    Beautiful quilt - I can never see things that are not right. It must be my old eyes, or maybe not very critical.

    Leave it! The quilt is lovely, and I had to hunt and hunt to find the possible offending blocks (still not sure it's the ones you're looking at, though). Definitely not worth the effort to change.

    You're probably the only one it will bother. I think it's gorgeous just the way it is. Don't mention it and no one will notice.

    There's nothing on that quilt that I would change. It's lovely.

    I can't see it. So don't tell anyone! Beautiful quilt.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    I don't see it either. With everything separated by white, no two colors are sewn to each other anyway.

    Towards upper left corner - two very dark ones with small white design???

    If it bothers you - it would not take all that long to change it out.

    If it does not bother you - then why did you ask?

    (If it is the ONLY pair-up in the whole top - you could leave it as an I spy thing and award a prize to the first person that spots it.)

    I would not have gone out of my way looking for duplicates if you had not mentioned it, though. :-)

    Your quilt is awesome. I doubt anyone will ever notice the duplicate blocks unless you point it out to them. I would just let things be and not give it another thought.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I would only change it if it really bothers you and causes your eye to always go to that area. I did find it-after I spent time finding it. When you are doing scrappy it is always easy to zero in an a 'problem'. Quilting is supposed to be fun. If you didn't point it out, would it be seen by most people who look at your quilt. I doubt it judging by the comments you have received.

    I can't find it, so my recommendation would be to ignore it.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Are you talking about the pink center blocks?

    The only thing I see is a beautiful quilt someone put a lot of time and effort into for some special people or person. As another stated about the galloping horse.
