FAIL!

What's wrong with this picture? hmmmmmmm????



I did NOT see that I had the courthouse blocks turned the wrong way in the middle row until I saw the photo in the viewing screen on my camera.  Looks like I got some frog stitching to do...Rip it! Rip it! Rip it!

  2. Ah dear! You have made the mistake look lovely and neat though - the whole row is out! Hope the backwards sewing doesn't take too long! Post another photo when it's done. Sam xoxoxo

  4. Many years ago I was making cross stitched family trees for gifts. Fortunately I was taking in-progress pictures to show my sister and realized I had misspelled one name. This was before the age of digital cameras so it was several days before I could see the developed pictures before I saw the mistake.
    I'm glad you had not quilted yet - this kind of frogging is *easy* to do.

  5. I did that same thing last week and until I took the photo of it to post in my flicker acct., I didn't even notice 2 glaring errors of blocks being turned the wrong way!!! ;) Thank goodness you and I caught it before we started quilting them!!

  6. I see you are a fan of FAIL blog: http://failblog.org/
    Maybe there should be just a quilter's fail blog.
    this is why I don't believe the nonsense about old quilters putting in a deliberate mistake so their quilt is not perfect. It's so easy to just do mistakes naturaly!

  9. Too bad it wasn't right in the center of the quilt eh? Then you could have a new variation!! Love how the quilt looks though - the mistake...but it should be a quick fix though a pain!! I hate ripping. But, do it right away or you won't feel like it :-)

  10. It's not a mistake, it's an artistic decision! I think it looks great....
    Reminds me of an argyle strip on a sweater!
    I think you should leave it!

  12. That always amazes me that the eye can't see something when looking at it, but put it on a computer screen and there it is!
    Looks great either way!
