    I guess I'm blind. I only see a beautiful quilt!

    Been there..I think I get so focused on details that I fail to look at it as a whole! It's like spelling...if I made a typo, when I re-read it I read what I meant to type and don't see the error. Darn, these keyboards are as bad as the old typewriters of old. They insist on making mistakes!

    Same here. I would not have known if you hadn't pointed it out. It seems as if it was intended. That would be the story that I would stick to if someone asked. lol. I like it.

    Really beautiful!! Finally found it but it looks like it belongs there.

    Every project has an era in them. I don't do it on purpose but it reminds me of my effort and care it took to make.

    Been there, done that. If you don't mention it, no one will notice. Actually, it is a very beautiful quilt. You should be proud.

    Oops, I've done that before. I just pretended that it was supposed to be that way. Your quilt is a beauty anyway.

    The quilt is absolutely beautiful. If you hadn't mentioned the error I would not have seen it. I had to really look hard to see it.

    You are the only person that knows there is even a mistake in it. If anybody asks, reply with, "That's how you tell the bottom from the top"

    If you hadn't mentioned that there was a mistake, I never would have looked and searched hard to find it. Mum's the word!!!

    My first quilt has a block turned and I didn't notice it till I posted it on here! But I love it no matter what and you will too. I couldn't see yours without looking carefully since you pointed it out, but still very striking!

    It took me time to find it. But if you didn't say anything I wouldn't have seen it. It's beautiful. Well done.

    It is very pretty, and you don't have to tell anyone when they see the quilt in person!

    I really like it a lot, and your right it's beautiful.
    I don't know why we see something after it's finished.
    I bet it has happened to all of us! ;)

    I probly would have done that on purpose. I am a rebel that way. It makes it your own, not just a pattern you followed. Lovely.
