    :) Your quilt is wonderful and unique. It is a "one of a kind".
    I like the colors and pattern your picked.
    You did a great job! :thumbup:

    I think that it is the mistakes that make them special. Some of mine are very very special.

    It honestly looks like you planned it that way. Love the colors. I would bind it with the same color in the outer binding. JMHO

    You know what I love for bindings? Stripes! So if you could find one in those colors, it would make it pop!

    But I've been very lucky to find matching stripes lately...
    Great job!! :thumbup: :-D :thumbup:

    I had to look at it a while before it jumped out. Don't mention it and most won't even see it.

    It took me at least 5 minutes searching for it! Now in my opinion if it takes that long to see it, then it's not a mistake! :) Great quilt Nancy.

    Love your quilt and do not regard the middle block as a mistake.....just another pretty block that is part of the quilt. As for the binding, I think either bind with that dark tan that is in the quilt, or use the same fabric that is in the border.

    The Amish always put a mistake in their quilts because only God is perfect.

    It is a beautiful quilt.!!

    Found it and I think it just looks like you planned it, especially since it is in the center.

    No need to laugh, its pretty. I would think that since its in the center, that is the way its supposed to be.

    Actually - I like it. I would incorporate your label in the special block. They'll think it was intentional.

    Also you know there is the legend that Amish and Mennonite women put a mistake in each quilt because only God is perfect therefore it would be prideful to make a perfect quilt.

    If anybody says anything you could say that's what you did :)
    I was going to say the same thing!

    It's tough to spot. It probably screams at you now but remember it took you forever to see it and that's the way it really is--tough to spot. It's a great quilt!

    Well I had to go look at this 3 times & was ready to give uo before I saw the block. It is a beautiful quilt! I like the idea of using the one block as a label area. It si a beauty!
