    I cannot believe I did this!!! And I only noticed when I was to post this picture to show the result of my finished top!!! All I can think of now is, " Dumb-Ass" !!!! : ) So, last week I posted the top pic, seeking advice on borders... and this is what I've done.. It will also be sporting a navy- blue binding... I called it, "Wild Winds"

    What do you think, and would you tear it up and redo the upside down piano keys that I screwed up? Keep in mind that imperfection is said to be art and originality, right?? : )))))

    Since the 'imperfection' is completely invisible LOL I think I'd leave it as is!

    Is this another ooops moment? Did you post the wrong pic?

    It creates a pattern within a pattern. I would not change a thing. It' pretty.

    It will probably always bother you if you don't take out the "wrong" sections and fix it before you go any further

    I heard this once, and I'm not sure whether it's true or not, but I love it anyway: the Amish always sew a "mistake" into their quilts, to remind themselves that no one is perfect except God.
    Leave it.

    Okay, now I see the problem, lol. It's not awful, but everything else looks so good that I think it would be worth correcting the mistake before you go any further. It's going to be a beautiful quilt when it's finished.

    I have to tell you that I like the effect with the piano keys just the way they are....sort of an artsy thing. I would leave it like it is. It looks like it should be in an art gallery.

    I would probably fix it too - but would just do the 1/3 of the lower left so that that row is consistent - rather than redoing two sides of the border.

    It is a very cool quilt.

    Cheers, K
