    I would leave it. I like them both. Two great variations with the same blocks!

    I don't think it is a problem since you reversed them on both sides, it is balanced

    Think she is right. If you don't tell, everyone will think that was exactly what you meant to do. ;-)

    Oh no - I'm sorry! I would pull it out - I really like it a lot better the way you had planned.

    Isn't it amazing how in the 2 feet from your design wall/floor, a carefully planned design, probably hours in the making, just goes completely haywire?

    You really have to laugh about it.

    Been there, done that.

    And in this case, yeah, I would reverse sew it. Unless you change the outside blocks to make a complete X with dark lines going through the whole quilt.

    Without that, the 2nd design, as is, is just not as defined as the first one, and looks a bit too scrappy.

    So, what's your favorite type of seam ripper? :wink:

    And seems I'm in the minority. And so it goes. ;) ;)

    I know it would personally drive me crazy since I knew what it was suppose to look like... it all depends on how you are with things like that - are you a let dogs lie or a fix it so you can forget it?

    If it were mine I would re do it. I love when a square on point forms within a design as in your planned layout in pic #1. I am not as partial to x's. But that is just me.

    It looks great. Nobody will ever know what you thought it was going to look like.

    I agree.

    I would take it out and do it the way that was planned.
