    Sorry, but I canīt see a goof, so stop worrying about it. Think it looks real good.

    OH, Patrice! It's so pretty!!!!! I don't think most people would even realize it as a mistake, but just as the design. :lol: They'd just think it was supposed to be like that! I wouldn't take it apart, either! HE99 NO! LOL!

    Have you heard of the book, "Who Moved My Cheese?'? You could call it Somebody Moved my 9-patch...I think it looks great. What ugly fabric?

    That's just the intentional mistake you put in to keep it from being perfect, thus keeping you humble, right?

    PatriceJ...well I know what I would do and your not going to like this...yep pick it out...I have done this too...I would pick out the whole nine patch and replace it....wasn't really that hard....had to keep laughing at myself while I was picking or I would have cried....guess it's Gods way of keeping us humble :D :roll: .... Or you could just leave it alone like everyone else suggests....there's some good suggestions in there too!

    you could take off the last two rows and make a wall hanging.....

    My first impression was that it was an op-art quilt, and it looks perfect! :!: I am of the school that says unless it is for a competition, it is done correctly.

    I had to read the posts and then go back to the quilt to find the goof. It is not that noticeable. I like it and don't think the fabric is all that ugly.

    Very nice, fabrics don't look ugly at all when you're done with them :P . No way I'd take that sucker out either, plenty of great name suggestions been given to prove it was a design choice :wink:

    there was a time I'd have automatically either re-engineered or tossed the whole thing in the dumpster. (can you hear all the screams and fainting? :lol: ) now, if i know i could make the whole thing over in the time it would take to make the fix, i just force myself to accept the goof and keep going.

    lucky for me, i've seen quilts and patterns for sale that use a similar layout (offset, asymetrical chevrons - laaaah deee daaah, now ain't we all impressed? :lol: )

    i just laughed so hard when i realized what i'd done. up to that moment, i was feeling quite full of myself because - for once - all the patches and blocks intersected either perfectly, or so close you could barely see the gafarbles. i couldn't resist sharing the "joke's on me" moment. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    artists always have a little mistake to let the viewers know it is done by hand... ok.. granted, not such a small mistake.. but.. here is an excuse !
    :D
