    You can always make the section and just applique it over the oops and then quilt it and no one would be the wiser. Ask me how I know It's a beautiful quilt!

    It's a gorgeous quilt! It's a reminder to stay humble--even when you make totally stunning quilts---(which this is!)

    If you want to fix it, and you haven't quilted it yet I would say undo the upper corner and fix it. But it took you three years to see it and only you said it had a error. I cant prove it wasn't suppose to be that way in the first place.

    Yes because you told us to look for it

    the question is will you be happy if you leave it there

    only you can answer that

    I think that like all the others, I was looking for the mistake. If it took you 3 yrs. to notice it I don't think anyone else will immediately see it, if you don't say the word "mistake". And if they do .....so what.

    The quilt is very pretty. When I look at it, I see flowers and what a great spot you have to appliqué a lady bug .

    I think it looks much more casual and fun than if the flower were in the correct place ( not that that would look bad). Leave it and enjoy the happy accident!

    This is a darling quilt and a terrific design. If it were me, I'd go nuts if I didn't correct the misplacement - because it's so obvious. Not to say I'm a perfectionist - in other quilts I have left many an error, but not ones that are so noticeable. After you're done kicking yourself, buck up and fix it - you'll be so glad you did!
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!

    awwww bless your heart. you know sometimes we all can lay our pieces on the floor or design wall and still miss place a block. At least it is close to the edge to fix. Wonderful quilt by the way
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.

    The quilt is beautiful. Yes, I found it right away. If the mistake will drive you crazy years from now, fix it now and then you won't be saying, "Don't look at this quilt. I made a mistake and never got around to fixing it."
    I know myself and an obvious mistake would bother me years down the pike. It is really cute though. How did you make the plates that they stand up???

    buddy'smom! Is it possible to applique the design onto the blue fabric? I think that I would try that first. I actually had to do that on a block that I made and it worked out well. Good luck! It is a beautiful quilt.

    If it's still at "just the top" stage, I would fix it.

    It would bother me a lot if I left it as is after noticing the difference!

    It's a very pretty quilt.

    Have you been using it? Draping it over the couch? Snuggling in it? Tucking it around a loved one? Nobody else has noticed or said anything? Then I say to call it a design feature!
    Seriously, if it makes you crazy now, fix it. If it doesn't, don't. And if it doesn't make you crazy, no need to apologize to those who it does.

    Maybe someone already said this...but if it really bothers you - what about applique the Dresden plate quarter on that block? I think it's a very pretty quilt - and it would be a shame for it not to be seen.
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.

    Yes, it shows up, my advice, fix it or you never will be happy with this quilt!!! I find an error in one of my quilts after I had finished quilting it, had to remove quilting, take out the patch, correct the error and applique it back in and re-quilt it. I was never sorry that I fixed it!!!
