    So I finished this mariners compass about three years ago. It's been framed and hanging above our tv for about two years. The other night I was absent-mindedly looking at it, and it dawned on me that one point is backwards...danggit!

    DOH!!

    Wouldn't have even noticed it, if you hadn't have said something! It is gorgeous! I would keep it hanging, nobody else will notice, besides, you can always say you did it on purpose!

    It took me a long time to find the "backward" point. Wouldn't have noticed it if you hadn't pointed it out. It's lovely! :-D

    You are suppose to do that on every quilt. I have a wall hanging that I did in the early 90s. I just noticed a quilting mistake on mine too. LOL

    If you haven't noticed it before now, it is ok. Looks great to me, I would have never noticed.

    Someday I may take it down and fix it, but probably not.

    I had to hunt for it too, and that's only because you said one of the points was backwards. You're the only one to notice it.

    Gosh, I am so proud of me. I found it. It took about 15 minutes but I looked and looked and looked. I have never done one of these and when I couldn't see anything out of order I thought it was something I would know if I knew the pattern or were a more experienced quilter. It isn't something the eye would notice without a lot of concentration time. Bet no one ever notices it. I wouldn't have and I do like the wall hanging. I think your work is great.

    There are no "mistakes" in quilting....just creative expression!

    It is beautiful and if you had not said anything we would not seen it (very hard to find)

    If you would have said nothing, I would never have noticed.

    After you mentioned it, I had to look and look before I spotted it.

    I live near a Amish community and they always put something in wrong, because we are not all perfect. So I just say I meant to do that.

    That is too funny!!! Don't the Amish always put an error in their quilts because nobody is supposed to be perfect? You can't tell on this unless you hunt for it.

    Same here. I thought you were bluffing, as it took several tries to find it. If all my mistakes were that hidden, I would be happy.
