    I think it would drive me nuts to leave them together. But that is just me.

    Leave them! The value is in the history not in perfection.

    I agree. My mom is helping me piece a quilt and she put two pieces together that are the same fabric and they should each be different. When thinking about it, there's a certain charm to the mistake. Left it in, as it's just a "mom" thing and will be a memory of her working fast to get it done! Hope you leave it. We are too worried about everything being perfect. You won't even notice it after awhile.

    I don't know what I was thinking when I posted this. I forgot to tell you that she died in March. I think I'll just leave it the way she made it. She obviously knew what she was doing. She did wonderful hand piecing and quilting. She would have been 93 years old in April.

    It's a pretty top. But personally I would move them. If I took the time to finish the quilt in the end that would always bug me, but that's part of my personality and may not be yours.

    If she can be asked, ask her. Otherwise, I would probably change it because I am compulsive that way. There is no need to do so, however.

    What a gift that you have acquired this quilt and that you will be able to finish it as I am sure she wanted very much to do. It is a lovely quilt, I wouldn't change a thing!
