    I get this all put together and realize one set of blocks is facing the wrong way.......is it obvious enough to tear out and re-do? It is going to be a gift, but I very seriously doubt the mother knows anything about quilting...... Tell me now before it's too late :)

    If I was going to sit and study it, I'd probably find it. As it is, I don't see it.

    Is it going to bother you? If so, re-do it. If not, let it go! :)

    Took me a bit to spot it so I don't think it's too bad, especially if the person you are giving it to doesn't sew.

    BKinCo....Don't worry about it. First, the quilt is so busy it isn't obvious. Second, a busy mother of a baby isn't going to have time to make sure everything is perfect. Also, did you know that the Amish usually incorrectly put in a block intentionally because in their belief, no one is perfect except the Good Lord. Bind it up and give it to the mom-to-be and don't give it another thought. Lois

    It took me a while to find it. I'd let it go. If it's not noticed, well and good. If it is noticed it will make a conversation tidbit and maybe become a game where others try to find it. So it's good either way.

    I can't even find it!! She'll never notice. I made a quilt with an appliqued butterfly in each square. To my surprise, several weeks after it was finished, I noticed I had one of the butterflies upside down! So yours looks great.

    I can't see it so I bet she can't either. I would finish it as is. I like your quilt.

    If you haven't told me to look for it I would not have found it. It took me a few times looking it to find it. LOL Don't worry about it. :-)

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that can't find the mistake. The think the person it is made for will be so pleased that they will not even notice if they can even find it. Quilts are a gift from the heart. It looks perfect to me and she should feel very special to get such a gift.

    wow nothing like a good hidden picture... It took me a while. I think only you will notice it. I know it would bug me to let it go but if its to much work to unpick then I say let it go she will never notice it if she doesn't sew.

    Usually I would say change it if it bothers you. In this case, the quilt is busy enough I have spent the last 10 minutes looking for it and still can't find it. Leave it be.

    With all the color and once bind it will not be notice. I do understand when we do these kind of things what it makes us feel like. Who ever receives it will love it and its your take on a new twist of your own. If we always copied a pattern how would we come up with new ones. God Bless

    It took forever to find and it's not obvious so I think it's fine. It's nice to have a "unique" quilt top that's different and not the norm and she'll love it. :)

    Just FYI Amish quilts have a mistake in every one of them because there belief is God is only perfect. So it gives the quilt character
