    Unhappy Will this pinwheel never end?

    Finally figured out what I want to do with LA, took a picture, and my SIL immediately texts me to say one block is reversed.Name:  IMG_0185_1024.jpg

    Lower right corner, green one? If you hadn't said anything, I never would have seen it. The pinwheels look great!

    Noooooo! Well at least you can fix it before it's quilted. Very pretty pinwheels!

    I see the rebel pinwheel and I love it! don't change it! It just looks too cute to see that one pinwheel going in the opposite direction

    A friend of mine did a great valentine wall hanging, with one heart unintentionally on it's side. I LOVE it! and was glad she left it that way. I would leave it!

    Adnil, love the "humility block" adage it made me smile.

    Even now that I see it, it doesn't stand out.

    thanks for the encouragement. I looked at it closely and I'm leaving it. There's no way I'd ever get a new one in exactly right.

    I couldn't find it until someone else pointed it out - unless it bothers you - I would leave it. Most people would never notice!

    I had to look three times to finally find it, and that is only after I read where it was. I am glad you have decided not to change it. It is a beautiful quilt, and that block does not look wrong, even when I know it is.

    Beautiful quilt!

    Maybe you could make your quilt "Standing out in a Crowd". See how many people figure that one out. I like it!!!!!

    Well, how are you going to stop the others from turning if you don't have it there to stop it. Please leave it there.

    I looked and looked for the oops and I still didn't see it until someone named it. Like someone else said it still doesn't stand out. I'm glad you are leaving it. I love pinwheels and this quilt is FABULOUS!!!

    Are the fabrics all the same print but in different colors?

    "humility block" is awesome. I'm going to use that! I say leave it. It gives the quilt even more personality. Nice job!

    I looked and looked and could not find the wrong way pinwheel. I even had trouble finding it when it was pointed out. I think your quilt is just gorgeous the way it is.

    Your quilt is beautiful and I had to look three times before finding the "wrong-way pinwheel"! Looks fine to me.

    I found the twisted block after much looking, it looks great there and I love the "humility block" label. Thanks all!
