    Love Peg's idea to fix. I wouldn't have thought of that. Love your execution too - will definitely do the job. Well done.

    Good solution! I tried to make a Lone Star a while ago and it looked like a "D" cup!. Gave up on it.

    Wow, now I'm feeling inspired to go look at some of the projects I gave up on, it looks great I'm so glad you shared the before and after! That is going to be really pretty when you are all done!

    That is a great fix - no one will ever know unless you tell them.

    I have never made one but it is looking good at the moment. Do you think perhaps when it is quilted that will smooth things out more? I can't see anything obvious. I think you have done a splendid job of this! :thumbup:

    Don't we all wish we could fix a mistake and have it turn out as beautiful. I think we have the smartest membership on the web!! I learn something new every day.

    Had I not seen the original, I would have thought your "fix" was just what you were going for :D It looks great.

    Beautiful--I didn't notice the 2 reversed blocks at first. Keep working--we all make mistakes and most of them can be fixed.

    And that, ladies, is what this quilt board is all about! If you don't have a clue, someone on this board will! You just have to ask! It's beautiful now! And a LOT of work. I'm glad you were able to save it! :-)
