    I've searched and searched and still can't see the reversed pinwheel. I made a smaller pw quilt but wasn't happy with the colors I chose so didn't keep it.

    I love it, I still couldn't find the wrong one. Leave it where it belongs.

    I found it right away BUT it gives me such warm fuzzies to see it there! My grandmother always put at least one "wrong" block in every quilt she made and one of my favorites was a small pinwheel quilt she made for me that had a "backwards" pinwheel in it. (She made a matching one for my sister, but on that one all the pinwheels went the same way but two of them each had one "arm" in a slightly mismatched fabric.)

    Unfortunately I don't have any pictures and can't remember what ever happened to that quilt or I would love to share. When my grandmother passed away, I painted a small mural for her funeral that included scenes from her life, and one of the items in the mural was a pinwheel quilt hanging on the line, with one backwards pinwheel!! My aunts (her daughters) noticed it immediately and they (along with many many quilt guild members) spent a lot of time reminiscing about my grandma and her "rebellious" quilt blocks.

    So to me...it's more perfect WITH the "rebel" pinwheel. I'm glad you decided to keep it that way!

    I would not change it.

    I love the secondary design, the arrows. I'm going to have to play with it.

    LOL! Reminds me of the saying, "There is one in every crowd!!" If it were mine, I would put that name on the label. It's a beautiful pinwheel quilt!! Great job!

    Oh! I didn't even see the arrows! I had to go back and look for them.

    If that rebel pinwheel had been in the middle, it would have been surrounded by subtle arrows. That's really cool!

    Now I like it even better!

    It makes me think of the hidden arrow in the FedEx logo.

    Oh believe me you could replace that perfectly and I usually do just that. But, this is the first one I really would leave in. Just because it needs to stay that way. He had to be different and there's one in every crowd. Love it!

    I couldn't find it on my own. I like it too glad you're leaving it.

    In all Amish quilts they do make one block a little different from the rest. They say the only thing perfect is God. So they purposely make their quilts imperfect. I like the idea. That way if I mess up I can just say it was planned. lol

    Your humility inspires me and so does your wonderful quilt.

    I'd tell her that's how I wanted it!! Don't mess with something that's pretty the way it is! And,since she HAD to tell you about it, don't gift it to her!!

    In bead-work, you always put ONE bead in the wrong order. Only the Lord is perfect, certainly I'm NOT! I'd leave that block right where it's at and just tell SIL, it was planned that way. If SIL is recipient, maybe she secretly wants to make one herself?

    By the By, your points are all awesome. Perfect just as it is.

    Tell you SIL that the one block is right and all the others are wrong and you don't want to change all the others. LOL

    Beautiful quilt. Love the suggestion of "Stands out in a Crowd". I am new to quilting. Hope I can do great work like this, someday!

    I had to look for it as well. I would definately leave it in the quilt. Humility block is a great reason to have it there and saves fixing. I like the look with it included.
    Love your quilt BTW.

    Took me awhile to find it. I like it the way it is, but at least it is on the edge if you wanted to change it. I love the pinwheel design especially with white. Makes the whole thing look fresh and clean

    Never would have noticed it if you hadn't mentioned it. It adds character and personality. I am glad to hear that you are leaving it like it is. It sure would be interesting to see how many people actually notice it without being told.

    I couldn't see the mistake block, but that is okay, the Amish have a policy, to always make one mistake in every one of the beautiful quilts they make. The policy being, is that only God is perfect, so they make sure none of their quilts are. They make one block wrong, or have one piece of fabric, wrong side up, and so on...... Yours is beautiful, and perfect in my eyes. Thanks for posting. Auntie B.

    Name this one "Dances to a different drummer" and leave it in. I think you will be amazed by how few people notice it.
