    If anyone notices I would say I meant it to be that way. It's the bottom. It can be diff from the other three sides.

    I love it. It took me a while to see it.It's a good way to tell which side is up. I always bind mine with a different color binding at the top of the quilt so I know which way to turn it on the bed. I would love to make it but it looks like it would be hard to make.FayZ

    I'd love to say I just threw it together but I was being, what I thought very careful and still.

    I wouldn't have seen it had you not pointed it out. And at that, it still took me a good 5 minutes of staring before I saw it.

    Beautiful job though!

    You can start making it a practice of one goof per quilt as your signature.

    I still don't see it.

    You did a great job. I see the problem only because you mentioned it. That made me look for it!

    I have learned to take a picture of it before it is all put together, this way I will see the mistakes and get them fixed. I have had to redo parts of almost all of them. Learned this after the first two.

    I only noticed because you mentioned it. And I specifically looked for something.

    But the way it is now, it looks like a plant stand. If you display it the way you have it in the photo it looks like you meant for it to do that.

    DESIGN ELEMENT!!!! You're so creative to think of doing that!

    Me either. It took me awhile. Looks like it could just be the normal bottom of the pattern.
    It is a gorgeous quilt

    Took me a minute to see it, but I don't think it changes the look of the piece. I love this!!

    I seem to remember reading long ago that some quilters used to put an "oops" (one piece the wrong color or turned on its wrong side) in each of their quilts because only God can make perfect things. Must have been really good quilters, huh?

    I think it's a wonderful quilt. I know I've done this kind of thing before so your in the club now! It doesn't detract at all from the look or balance of the finished quilt!

    I also had to really look and look to see what you meant. I think it is lovely and
    if you do not point it out the problem I think most people will be just taken with the beautiful colors and the overall effect! Thanks for sharing

    Doesn't look so bad if you keep it at the bottom of the wallhanging. Makes it look supportive of the rest of the design. Very pretty.

    I wouldn't have noticed. I had to look hard to find the mistake. It could definitely be "on purpose".

    It's beautiful. But I know just what you mean. I get so frustrated with my mistakes. But my son said something that makes me smile......one error is just a mistake, but more than one makes a pattern. :-)
