    Finally made myself a quilt

    Name:  my quilt.jpg

    So I finally made myself a quilt (well quilt top thats ready to be quilted) and after I uploaded a pic I noticed 2 rows that I put in upside down. Guess I need to break out the seam ripper! This is only the 3rd quilt I have made so I guess a few mistakes arent too bad!

    I guess it is how you look at it. It looks fine to me. Only you will know that any thing is amiss. Pretty. BrendaK

    This is lovely and looks like it will be cheerful and snuggly when quilted. Look forward to seeing it finished (smile). You did a great job. Thank you for sharing.

    I, too, think it looks just fine. I would only redo if I knew it would bug me every time I looked at it!

    Well only you know what is upside down and rightside up. If it don't bother you then leave it, Looks great the way it is to me.

    I thought you said you made the quilt for YOU, if YOU like it then just enjoy and forget the seam ripper. To tell you the truth I spend several minutes looking at your quilt and I can't see the upside downs, I do see pretty colors and happy prints.
    With quilters for friends, I will always be warm.

    With this type of design there really is no "wrong" way of putting the blocks together. Absolutely NO ONE will ever look at it and think there's a problem, because there isn't. If it bothers you... well, do the ripping... but I wouldn't. It's a beautiful quilt, lovely fabrics, good work - why mess with it?

    I sure couldn't see anything wrong with it. I think you should just finish it up and enjoy it!!

    Pretty fabrics and nice job. I don't see anything wrong with it. Unless it will bug you when you snuggle undress it, I wouldn't tear it apart. :-)

    Very pretty, if the errors bother you, change them, if not finish it up.

    Yeah for you. One for yourself. I'm not seeing the error. Maybe you just have a new design.

    Unless it will make you crazy, I wouldn't change a thing. Next time you'll do better, but this is lovely.
