    I am glad you caught the error, before the quilt is finished, so that you can correct the block placement. I have "been there and done that" too. It would bother me not to fix it, at the present stage. While it may not be easy to rip and resew, you know that you would forever glare at the error if you did not. Good luck on finishing the beautiful quilt.

    Call it your "Humility" block.

    Isn't it always the way that it is in the middle and not the edge

    I'd be more inclined to leave it there - nothing is perfect, least of all any quilt I've ever made. I think it gives your quilt 'character' !!

    I can see it and if it bothers you, you are right to fix it.

    I can see it. I have to tell you I made a miniature pinwheel wall hanging for our camper. Quilted it, put the binding on and hung it up. A few weeks later I noticed I had turned one of the pinwheels the wrong way. I meant to do that, ha.

    I feel that could be your "humbility" block. Sometimes we all need a little nudge to not be so hard on ourselves.
    If you hadn't specifically mentioned where to look ..... I doubt many of us would have noticed it. Striking quilt.

    Found it but I had to search. Join the crowd of regular inventive and perhaps slightly imperfect quilters. Tee-Hee! Lovely quilt just the same. I love the humilitiy block concept.
