    I would take off the smaller 4 patches.

    It's a very pretty block.

    There's no easy way. It is a nice pattern and your blocks are neat :cry:

    good luck...you are not the only one who has done this. Some days I just walk away from the machine :)

    Why rip anything out? You just made a different block, that's all. May in Jersey

    that is not a mistake.

    it is a surprise design change. :P

    who says you have to follow the pattern exactly?

    Dang! This is where I would sit in my chair watching a TV show and relax while ripping. Looks like there may be less to undo if you do the geese.

    I'm sorry, but maybe I don't understand the problem. Wouldn't you just move the stack that is above the middle to the bottom, and the stack that is below the middle to the top?

    What am I missing??? (I *do* have a headache at the moment, so forgive me if I am being really dense......)

    Oh, duh! Finally figured it out!

    I would take off the red and blue patches; at least they're all sewn on the straight-of-grain. Wouldn't want to fool with the flying geese.

    I agree with stacey65, I would leave as is. I don't mind some seam ripping, but not that much.

    Your points on your geese look good, so I'd leave them and switch the four patches. I'm glad you found it now instead of when it was completed.

    can't you just save them for the next blocks and then use them on the sides. sew the geese to the top and bottom and then sew the sides with the mistakes on. do you get what i mean.

    Yes, but all 18 unfinished blocks are at the same point only 20 in all, maybe should rip out the two and turn them like the rest and will be my OWN pattern gee, never been a designer before

    If it were me....and I admit to being a little too perfectionist...I would have to take it apart and make it "right" or it would always nag at me. I would take off the 4 patch squares, working at the machine, and quickly replace them in the correct position. Shouldn't take too long.

    I think either way it will look nice - but if you rip it out - just take the ones that need to be flipped - it probably wouldn't take much time and then you will be happy..

    Well, I have looked and looked and I don't see that you need to do any ripping. All your blocks are alike so who is gonna know if they aren't according to the pattern. Looks fine to me...unless you just can't live with it!!
