    I was always told that only God makes things perfect. We just have to keep trying!

    It is still fabulous! And who would notice unless you tell them.
    I was looking in one of my quilt books today and noticed one of the quilts has 2 blocks that have a 4 patch turned wrong. Oops! Nobody noticed before they published the book.

    I love that block! So very pretty and the type of block I want to learn eventually. If it's been hanging there for 2 years already, probably most everybody you have over to your house has already been there. If they haven't noticed it by now, they probably aren't going too. It's really not that noticeable if you aren't specifically looking for it.
    I would just leave it and be very proud of it!

    I never would have noticed it! Now it has more character! :wink:

    The same thing happened to me--it's been on the wall for over a year--I've taken photos of it--walked by it so many times..and finally noticed one square is turned. It drove me nuts for about 3 minutes, then I realized nothing can be done now--so I'm fine. :lol:

    Thankfully, I am ok with it. I laughed and laughed when I saw it. It was like, "Hey Hun...I did a point backwards...did you ever notice that?" I love the block anyhow.
    And for all those who want to try it....DO IT! It is crazy easy. It is paperpieced so it's tough to get it wrong! My plan was to do a whole couch throw with this, have all the fabric...still in the tote! :)
    My Mom loves it and I will be making her one soon for her wall. Trying to decide if I should accidently-on purpose put a point backwards to see how long it will take HER to notice!! Hee Hee!
    Thanks guys!

    I wouldn't have worries, had to start at the center and work my out before I could find what you were talking about.

    I read somewhere that a well known quilter, and I don't remember who, always made a "mistake". She thought it gave the quilts a handmade charm and challenged people to find it. So, you're in good company! And it's beautifil!

    Well I don't think you can possibly live with it. Take it down immediately and send it to me.

    I had the hardest time finding it! You silly woman!! It's gorgeous and one of my favorite blocks of all time!! :D
    Remember the old days- women would purposely make one block "wrong" b/c "only God is perfect".
    I love your work.

    I think it is interesting that your "mistake" balanced the bottom of the quilt--looks like it was meant to be that way.

    Never in a million years would have noticed it. Had to look very hard to find it. I think you should just say it's the rebel in you :twisted: Lovely block.

    Awesome job. If and when I ever make this I hope I can say that is the only mistake I have made.
