    These are blocks for a quilt I am making for my in laws for Christmas. I still have several to make. I was just playing with the lay out here.

    Your star blocks are all wonderful! Very pretty color choices.....

    Are you aware of the "boo boo" in the brown and orange colored one in the last picture? I wasn't going to ask but decided if it was me and I hadn't noticed it yet, I would want someone to tell me about it! one of your center points is turned the wrong way. Hope you don't mind me pointing it out...but would hate for you to have the quilt all put together before you noticed it....if you haven't already....

    I know alot of times if I make a mistake, I sometimes just leave it and tell everyone, "it was a design decision!" LOL

    Yes I am aware it is there. But I only saw it after I took the pics.

    I want to leave it but the little voice inside my head is saying "Fix it, Fix it, Fix it" LOL

    Well, I recently made one of these blocks and I did the same thing! I stood and stared at it for a long time before I could figure out what was wrong with it, but I knew something was! LOL Glad you are aware of it.... like I said, if it was me and I didn't see it I would hope someone would point it out to me!

    Its going to be beautiful. I love your stars. I would fix that one cause people pointing it out would annoy the heck out of me. But if you like it that way by all means leave it :D

    I love your carpenter's wheels - especially the brown one! Its one of my favorite patterns. Remember, there are no mistakes - simply design choices!

    Just gorgeous! It's funny--I never see errors until I post pictures on here. It causes me to do a lot of ripping out. :roll:

    I'm just curious here so am going to be brave and ask this question....nobody else has said "I sure would want to know"..... so did I do something wrong in letting Cresha know??? Wouldn't you want to know!? I surely didn't mean to hurt anyones feelings....and I am almost certain we have all done the same thing.... I know I have.....and after I've finally caught my mistake I have also had somebody say to me "well, I saw that and was afraid to say anything" and I encourage people to tell me if they see something I've missed!

    ok, I was brave when I started typing this and now I'm scared to hit submit......but.....here goes!!! LOL :)

    Your carpenters stars are just beautiful! I've not been brave enough to try that pattern yet. I'm getting better, but not sure I'm good enough for that one...yet :D

    Country quilter- While I can't speak for others, I would have wanted you to tell me. Thats part of why I post pics here-- I like feedback, both good & bad. Thats how I learn :wink:

    You sure didn't hurt my feelings! I am glad you pointed it out before I had the top stitched together. I have already ripped it out and have it pinned to sew. It looks so much better.

    Would I tell someone else? Probably, except for my sister LOL. I would just tell her that she had a mistake, can she find it. LOL

    Beautiful blocks!

    Yea, I'd probably tell someone about the mistakes. Hell ALL my quilts have mistakes in them. Do I fix them all,,,,nope! Some of them make their uniqueness.
    I really don't think anyone here would mind being told of mistakes. If they did, they would probably complain about it once, then post another picture and get NO response to it. Know what I mean?
