    I don't think most people notice the mistakes. I sent my last quilt to the quilter and she had it laying on her machine to start quilting and her 10 year old son found a block that was put on sideways!! Not me and not the quilter but her son. By the way he is also a quilter.

    I really had to look very hard to find the "flaw" but I think that makes the quilt charming and very personal :-D :thumbup:

    Wow, I didn't see it at all until I read Sharon's post. After finding it, I think it looks like the star is on a frame or something like that. It looks like it's meant to be that way. It's a beautiful quilt!

    My grandmother always flipped a square upside down on her quilts, she said that only God was perfect, so she would always make a mistake on her quilts so that it wouldn't be perfect. Pretty cheeky lady, if you ask me!

    Beautiful quilt, had to look to find it and would have never seen it if you hadn't mentioned it.
