    Update to Yikes, look what I did!

    I couldn't do it, I had to fix it! So I didn't even like the border, so here is what I did. I really like it and it will even be better when it is quilted. Amazing what you can do when you feel better, it really shows in the quilting.

    The white border is the one I put the rows on wrong, notice all the yellow rows all on one side.
    The blue border is the updated and corrected quilt top. Even though it will go to charity I wanted it right. I have yet to quilt it.

    I do like the border better and I think you did a wonderful job, I thoght your other "design" kind of looked like light and dark so I didn't realize what you found wrong the first time. You are very patient and I do like the second "design"

    I am the same way too, there are just some goof-ups I can't live with and must fix. I think your border swap was a good choice, the blue really sets off the colors better than the white. I think it is great that you put as much effort into a charity quilt as you do for a gift or keep quilt. Great job!

    Like the blue border much better than the white one. I'm the same way about correcting mistakes...you always feel much better when you do.

    Ok, I didn't get what was wrong the first time either...It has all become clear, this one looks much better! I had a couple really long seams on my first king size quilt that needed to be re-done and I debated for a couple of days...finally did it, and am so glad I did, it would have bothered me forever! Good job : )

    The blue border sets off the blocks beautifully. Glad you are feeling better.

    I agree with you. The first one was OK, but this one is good!

    I think you made the right decision even though it was a ton of work. You will be happy with the result and have no regrets. It is much easier to fix the problem before the quilting.

    I could not see anything wrong with the original , but I do like the "improved" much better.

    The "fixed" one is really balanced and pleasing to the eye. It really is amazing what a few changes can do.

    it definitely needed that darker border to STOP the movement and make the eye settle down...I think this is great!
