    Well,it took awhile to find that- no one will notice unless you point it out - besides I like the way you did it.

    No one will notice it, and if they do, they will think it was supposed to be that watt. I think it's lovely

    It took me a long time to find your mistake. If anyone stands and looks at your quilt that long they might find it but I doubt it. Great job and I would be very proud to hang it in my home mistake and all

    I made this same design and it takes a lot of concentration to get everything pointed the right way. Don't fret! I have a small design board (12" x 12") that I keep by my sewing machine and I lay pieces of the blocks out. Then I double check the picture, then double check again befote I sew everything together.

    It gives it a "top" and "bottom" look, like you did it on purpose! I know what you mean, but truly, everyone would think you did it on purpose!

    It's beautiful. Don't worry about it. Every one of mine has something like that. I think it is because we are so focused on completion of the project. And God wants to remind us only He makes perfection...

    Well, I had to hunt to find it, too. If anyone else ever notices it ( and I wouldn't tell them), just explain that it is this that makes the quilt uniquely yours!!

    it took me a couple of minutes to find it. One of the first books on quilting that I bought talked about mistakes.and the Amish would purposely put a mistake in their quilts as only GOD is perfect so that is my reason mistake

    Me too. I think it's beautiful and I wouldn't want it changed.
