    A friend's husband pointed out a similar "mistake" & she said it was there to see how closely ppl looked at it Your quilt is very pretty.Some ppl say they are not perfect,why expect their quilt to be.That would be me

    You can always make it like a "Where's Waldo" quilt as a challange to find the one. Lovely job on the top, look forward to seeing it quilted!

    My teacher used to say it was done on purpose to see it people were paying attention. If you SIL wants to nit pick, that is HER problem. Very nice job.

    It took me nearly 3 minutes to find it, even knowing. I would not stress over it unless you REALLY feel you want to take the time to fix it.

    It's hard to see, and I'm sure most people wouldn't be able to see it. Just leave it the way it is, and if anyone says anything about it, just tell them you did it on purpose to see if anyone would notice! It's a beautiful quilt!

    Took me a while, but I finally found it. If it takes that long for everyone, I wouldn't worry about it. Just do whatever you can live with.

    I think it adds interest to the quilt, and should definitely be left alone. The whole effect is just beautiful!

    I had to HUNT for it. I love this quilt just the way it is. There's nothing to change.

    Seriously, who would notice? And if they do ... give your quilt a snappy name to make it seem intentional ... Different Drummer, Odd Woman Out, A Different Breeze ... whatever. It is a gorgeous quilt.

    Oh bother! Leave it be. It will be interesting to see how many other people notice if you don't tell them. I had to really look. It gives your very beautiful quilt a bit of whimsy!

    My understanding is a person should always make a "mistake" on a quilt to acknowledge that only God is perfect. If it were me, I'd put that on the label so folks would think you'd done it on purpose.

    Fixing it or not fixing depends on you... When you look at the quilt are you upset about the wayward pinwheel, then fix it because you will always wish you had fixed it. Or do you look at the quilt and you enjoy the uniqueness, then don't fix it.

    By the way, the quilt is really lovely.

    I love the rebel, marching to the beat of a different bagpiper. Glad you're not forcing it to go with the crowd!

    "Rebel without a cause", I love it. Your quilt is lovely and unless it bothers you, I would not change a thing.

    thanks for all the compliments! It's one of my first quilts and until it was done I didn't think I'd ever say the word pinwheel again, let alone make one LOL.

    I'm super excited to get it shipped to Cindy to LA it. All I know is she plans different patterns for the sashing than the pinwheels. And I did leave the rogue wheel in!

    Thanks for pointing me to it. I was spinning in pinwheels looking. I like the "idea of a humble block."

    I'd leave it - only God doesn't make mistakes - I usually do something like this 'on purpose' - to me it makes it more interesting!

    I didn't see it without help, it doesn't stand out very much so it could be left.

    I agree, just tell your SIL you did it on purpose! I had to search 3 times before I could find it.
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, WINE IN THE OTHER, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!"
