    Really love your hand quilting, especially the paw print. Nice colors, too. When I saw the mistake {forgive me} I had to laugh. Boy, are we all the same when it comes to messing up! Loved it!!
    Have discovered paper piecing!
    OH YEAH

    I look at my quilt pieces through the opposite end of binoculars which helps to bring out the "mistakes", misplaced pieces and thing I don't seem to see just by looking at it. I also try to walk away from it for a short while to clear my mind and look at it again to see if I see mistakes. Hmmm. You've got kissing bears!!

    Your quilting is lovely. I do see the mistake, now that you pointed out, but I commented on this quilt top previously when you showed it, and I did NOT notice the mistake then.

    It is very nice...even with the backwards bear! I can walk around a quilt for days looking for a backwards block, think it is good and my daughter can take one glance and find something...so frustrating!

    In that space right above the problem you could put an appliqued little bear in the cream color. would look like you planned it that way.

    Yes, I see it..I done the same thing on my Daughter's clover quilt... it was in the corner and wasn't very noticable... I think it just gives it character...lol.. It's very pretty and love your hand quilting too. Awesome!
