    A while back I asked for opinions on my Pheasant quilt project. Almost done with the top. And now I see a design flaw with the top center placement. Do I leave it or redo it?

    All depends on how bad it will bother you. I'd leave it. It looks like a fairly simple fix,.

    If you hadn't said there was a problem I don't think I would have seen it!

    I think I would redo it as well. It would bug me to no end so I wouldn't be able to leave it, but that is entirely up to you, if it is something you can live with then leave it.

    Ten years ago I would have said "rip it out"...but I've learned life is too short for such tediousness. Even with a trained eye if you hadn't said something it would have gone unnoticed. If it bothers YOU then change it...if it just bothers other readers, leave it....that way you'll get more time to work on something else or finish this one.

    Well the thing is --this quilt is for an auction for the Pheasants Forever Benefit. It will be seen by hundreds. So it isn't for me.

    It really is beautiful as is. I seem to ALWAYS have something screwy to fix on mine too.

    It looks like a fairly easy fix (especially since I'm not doing it ;-0 ) I would fix it.

    You have spent a lot of time on this beautiful quilt, just a little more time will fix that one small place. You'll probably feel better to have done that since it will be seen by so many. Hope you raise a lot of money, the quilt deserves it.
    Just saw your post that you are fixing it. Good move.

    I would fix it if it bothered me and if it was important enough.

    *I* would leave it. I noticed a flaw with one I made a while back...I noticed it before I even sewed it together. It would have been an easy fix, but the truth is, I don't care that much. Might sound bad, but I have no interest in being perfect. The exception would be if this were a customer quilt. I will absolutely fix a flaw in a quilt someone is paying me for, assuming I notice it before quilting. If I don't...? Then I'll just hope they don't either, because unless the quilting is really screwed up, I'm *not* ripping out quilting stitches.

    Even if it bothered me..... I'd still leave it, probably no one else would notice it but you! I think it looks fabulous!

    I would leave it. My favorite saying is "There is only one perfect person in this world". I tell people, if they notice it, I want my quilts to be unique so I sneak in an error. Works for me. LOl I would not have seen it if you haven't pointed it out but I look at the whole beauty and don't look for errors. Love, love it. NO quilt police in my house.

    Personally, I would fix it. Though some have said they wouldn't have noticed had you not pointed it out, I saw it before I even read your post. I think your quilt is absolutely beautiful and it would be a shame not to have it exactly as you want it. (It doesn't really matter what anyone else would think of it the way it is right now though, it's how YOU feel about it that matters.) I've been there, believe me! lol I had to rip out and redo one of my quilts a couple of years ago and in the end, it was well worth the extra effort. :D
