    Ok so I layed this out, was so excited to get this far this week, and then was sewing the second side and realized that I sewed the border and frame backwards. The seam ripper and I will be best friends this evening

    Yes that does, except I put the white next to the black square when I actually sewed it. The pic is correct, I did it incorrect. Do you think it would look ok if the border (white) is next to the black square, and the black is out?

    I like the quilt, and I don't see the problem.

    I think it looks unified the way the picture is.

    I'm not sure what you mean, but I'll tell you this - I think it looks great the way it is.

    I understand what you are talking about...but if you hadn't told us, I would have thought that you planned it the other way. Want to post a pic of a corner the way you sewed it on and then we can give better advice. I'm sure it looks good...but...you know we want to see :D

    I think it really looks great, but like Patti says, if you had a picture of just a portion of the other way, we might be able to tell more.

    Take it apart girlie... Take it from one who "let it be" I HATE looking at that quilt cuz all I see is the mistake. There are times I think I'll fix it and there are times I hang the bad side on the side of the bed you can't see... but it still bugs me.

    I see what you are saying, however I love it the way it is, and would not have known that it was originally planned the other way had you not told explained it. I kept looking at it to see the "goof", but couldn't find it. I'd leave it as is if it were me ...

    Beautiful quilt. Ha! it seems that more often than not my seam ripper and I have become more than best friends. We seem to be identical twins we are so close. lol.

    i like the border arrangement in the photos very much. the stars "float". i've added it to my list of ideas to steal. :-)
