    Sure I found it but only because you pointed it out! (Why do we do that???) I'd leave it as is and smile every time you show it to someone and they DON'T see it without you showing them. Very pretty.

    Call it an Amish block. They always put one mistake in their quilts on purpose for humility. It's beautiful, and if you didn't say it was a mistake no one would notice.

    Your colours are really pretty. I would fix that mistake if it were me though. Also ... I'm wondering about the spacing of the others? What is the actual pattern name?

    It has personality...I wouldn't change it at all. It's beautiful.

    I might not have looked as closely had you not mentioned a mistake, however, I would think simply making another corner plate and appliquing it on would solve your problem. Thanks for sharing. You do know that the Amish deliberately put a mistake into every quilt they make because no one is perfect except for God. Fortunately, I don't have to make them deliberate. LOL

    I just did the same thing in a quilt I made. I convinced myself that only God is perfect & I don't want to offend him so I will probably just leave it to teach me some humility..LOL

    Very pretty. If you can't live with then you are right to fix it. I would do the same.

    Yes, but I agree with another comment....maybe only because you stated there was a mistake & I was looking for it. I actually kind of like it. Maybe you should just leave it. If you just can't live with it...it shouldn't be to much of a problem to take that one block out and reposition. Cute!!!

    I too only found it after searching for quite some time...I say leave it. It can be your "humility block". If I make a mistake, as long as the quilt doesn't have some major purpose - like going in a quilt show - I leave it. You could put a sweet saying about humility or the endearment of human error on the label. I think it's a charming quilt - leave it as is!

    Only because you said there was one did I even look. I made a log cabin quilt and it wasn't until I was sewing on the binding after having it long arm quilted did I notice that two blocks were turned the wrong way. gave it to my niece, and I don't think she ever noticed the mistake.

    I was able to find it but probably wouldn't have noticed it if you hadn't pointed it out

    I'm sure I would't have if you hadn't told me to look for it. But don't worry, we'll all keep it under our hats.

    Hey, what happened to "No two Alike"?! As in no two snowflakes are alike. I too found your signature block. But, I really had to look for it. It really is a pretty design.

    I don't see the "mistake" ... only a unique quilt! It's beautiful as it is!

    Move on,girl. No one will know if you don't point it out. If it bothers you, do the appliqué as suggested.

    If you didn't notice it for 3 years, I wouldn't notice it now! It's lovely as is. We don't want to have a "perfect" quilt anyway, do we?
