    until your quilt top is done and you take a photo of it????

    I have made 2 quilt tops lately and never noticed my boo-boo until I looked at the picture on the computer. UGH!!!

    I did the same thing twice on both tops. I sewed two matching pieces right next to each other. I tried so hard not to do it again but oh, well. LOL!!!

    Here is a picture of one of them. It is for my DD and my first try a Disappearing Nine patch. Ignore the date, I still haven't changed the camera yet. LOL!

    You didn't make a mistake... you made a modification to the original design.
    Very Pretty and Valentinesie.

    I'm on that galloping horse! Took me a long time to find what you are talking about. So don't worry about it.

    I really had to search for the boo boo! Great job...love the hearts. When I first started quilting my sister told me that every quilt has a "boo boo" and only the quilter knows where it is. I think sometimes we over analyze our quilts instead of just enjoying them. We are our own worst critics.

    My oldest daughter loves quilts. She has requested a quilt for every holiday and season. I am not crazy about reds, but it will be her Valentine quilt. I a making another out of Moda charm packs, using the Love is in the Air line from last year. It will be just a simple patchwork quilt. Just sewing the sqares together in a row.

    You will be the only one to notice the mistake. Everybody else will think it is the way you wanted to place your pieces. Love the colors. Beth

    It seems to me that your squares are placed in random order. Sometimes in nature, random order results in two identical things placed side by side (twins, for example). Not a thing wrong with that. Your quilt is beautiful, and if anyone says anything about the two like squares next to each other, just tell them 'that's nature'.

    I have to say also, I wouldn't have noticed the error if you didn't point it out. Great job on your first disappearing nine patch :) I also like what Leota said, that you just made a modification to the design.

    I do that alot myself and dont notice till its too late.
    Now I try to hang my quilt blocks for a few days on the flannel design wall and look at it frequently to see if there are mistakes.
    I did not notice yours till you pointed it out.
    Love you colors and prints.

    Umm, what mistake? The only one who will ever notice is you, so don't worry about it!

    If I didn't know that you weren't supposed to have 2 of the same blocks next to eachother and wasn't actually looking for a mistake, I would have never noticed an error!

    I think it looks great and since you are giving it away, I am sure it will be accepted as it is.

    You did not make a "mistake" you made a signature....it is YOUR mark on a very special quilt made especially for someone!! There are NO mistakes, only character building, or signatures of your work! That quilt is absolutely gorgeous.....I am going to havet to make me a red/white one and that pattern seems like something even I could do!
