How did that happen?

I put the border on my latest quilt last night. Then I hung it back up on the design wall to admire it check that everything looked good. I wanted to make sure I had the corner blocks going in the right direction.  Yep, all good.

I was letting my eyes follow the lines, and they came to a screeching halt, right here.


Rats.  One block turned sideways.  How did I miss that?  I guess the seam ripper will be coming out tonight.

  2. But as the Amish say, 'nobody is perfect, except God' so a 'mistake' in a quilt.....just pretend you did it on purpose, like the Amish do! It's really not noticeable

  3. Thank goodness you saw it before it was layered and quilted. Just shows there is a lot to be said for standing back to admire it (check it out).lol

  4. This seems to happen to me with every quilt I make! I've learned to piece the top and leave it hanging on the design wall for a few days. Also seems to help to take a picture and look at the picture on the computer.

  5. Hate it when that happens! Usually I only find it after it's quilted and it's too late to fix it.
