    This quilt is on it's way to me to longarm. I'm not telling how I'll quilt it, but stay tuned! We'll be revealing it soon!

    I'm glad that you decided to leave it. I made a pinwheel for my son a couple years ago as a Christmas present. I was about halfway through quilting it when I noticed that one square was turned the wrong way. I left it. Everyone says it adds to the authenticity of the quilt. And I wonder in generations to come, how many people will notice anyway?

    Send her a play tin quilt police badge, I had to look 3 times before I saw it and I would not change it either. It is what makes it unique and yours! I'm new and just finished first top, my corners don't always meet, I see a patch or two that maybe could go in a different place, but I love it and so does the recipient!

    Beautiful quilt, I would count the reversed block as my signature block. I too had to look a couple of times before I found it.

    My sister tells me all the time when I mess up a square placement that that is what makes it so unique and homemade. Love it and I had to look really hard to fine it. Love the quilt and I would leave it as it is!

    Well, it was SUPPOSED to be that way, right? Tell the SIL to stop looking for flaws!

    Yay! I love that you are going to "leave it". I always say that what makes it "hand made"!

    I didn't see it until the location was pointed out to me. I think it is a lovely quilt and the one block out of kilter is intentional (right?).

    Cheers, K

    Awsome quilt, made my head spin though as I was trying to find the offender (fifth row, green all the way to right). If it was up to me I would fix it, good that you did not quilt it yet

    There's an urban myth that the Amish always put a humility block in their quilts, saying that since only God was perfect, their quilts had to have a mistake in them. The myth is not true, but I like the idea of having a little "difference" in the quilts we make. Your quilt is beautiful, and the rogue block is VERY difficult to find, but is a good conversation starter!

    Beautiful! Tell dear SI the Amish do things like that to keep from being overly proud of fantastic work! Congratulations on your beautiful work!

    It looks fine to me. If the reverse block wasn't pointed out I never would have noticed it. I am glad you are leaving it.

    OK, you're pranking me right? I skipped right over the first picture and zeroed in on the enlarged, 2nd photo and couldn't see anything wrong with it! Was the close up just to drive me bonkers? It's a very short road trip for me! LOL
