Your call, but I too am very picky. Here's what I noticed. IF you make the two strips down the middle panel edges just 1 bit bigger and stitch them down covering where the loose part is, it will look intentional as long as you do both sides of center.
The strips are not sewn together. I quit working on it to decide if the ballerinas need repositioned. Thank you for looking and your comment.
Well Pam, I love it the way it is and I for one, always make a deliberate flaw in all my quilts. That way it's unique. It really isn't that obvious unless someone points it out. And honestly your 7 year old will absolutely love the Ballerinas and all the work and love that has gone into making it. Well done, love Chris
Thanks Chris. I have decided not to change anything.
Okay, lil sis, you asked for my opinion... It's for a 7-year-old!!! Do you really think she will notice and critique you or dislike the quilt any more because of a nearly impossible to locate flipped block? It will be out of your sight once you gift it to her. (Weigh your time and effort to take apart the one block against the value of "perfection.") The quilt is perfect just the way it is--well, once completed, anyway. We are our own worst critics. Remember the angel I made at Christmas? I pointed out all the flaws and you commented that those flaws made it different from all others and gave additional texture and shimmer that you really liked.
I needed to hear that from you. You are right I am my worst critic. Did you notice the "bee" and the "wild flower" fabric you gave me. I think it looks good. Thank you. I did not see any flaws in the angel.
I think that this is a personal decision. I usually prefer to fix mistakes because otherwise I'd always be bothered by knowing it isn't as good as it could be. At times, I don't bother like when I made a big mistake in the quilt I made for my dog. My dog still loved it! In this case, I'd definitely would fix it because it is for your grandaughter.
Finally, after two days of looking, I reread the comments and see what you call a mistake. Seems like an easy fix. Won't just swapping two blocks fix it? Your granddaughter should love this!!
Oh I whish it was that easy. What is shown in the picture will be the center of the quilt, on the outside will have same blocks but not the fancy ballerinas. So if the decision is made to fix the error, the outside will also need to be redesigned. The good news, I have not started on the outside. I appreciate your feed back.
Until I read your answer to the comment about the sashing ,it was the only thing I could see wrong.The ballerinas are lovely.If it the mistake annoys you a lot ,fix it now ,otherwise it probably annoy you every time you see the finished quilt
Looks good, but, yes, I would fix it, My friends call me pedantic!
Looks beautiful, but yes I would have to fix it. My mother taught me if a job is worth doing it is worth doing properly. Just the same a 7 year old would most likely not notice. Hugs
I am a Quilter and Can not see your mistake!!!Not all work is Perfect!!!Stunning
Thank you. I am still looking at it to see how much it bothers me. It is starting to be less bothersome.
I would fix it,every time you look at it you will see the mistake.
You wouldn't be satisfied otherwise. Lovely quilt
Happy Stitching :-)
Because I am not a quilter I am always impressed and amazed by what all you quilters produce, therefore I think it is wonderful the way it is!
I do not see it. One would have to have a very critical eye. Do you know that the Amish do mistakes on purpose? Just proves that it was not mass manufactured. 😊😊.
I like their way of thinking. Thank you for your comment.
I don't think the ballerinas need fixing but what jumps out at me is the sashing, or whatever the strip of fabric is called that borders the blocks. The one long strip needs to be resewn. To me that is a glaring mistake and over time will fray.
I think she just laid it down to show. That one long strip is not sewn yet.
It is not completely sewn together yet. The four blocks going up and down are sewn but the three rows side by side are not sewn yet. When finished it will be twin bed size.
Hi the quilt is great, you can hardly notice it
I think it is beautiful. Now for my opinion: If you are going to see the quilt often and it bothers you then fix it. If you probably won't see the quilt again, don't worry about it. Don't mention the 'problem' to your child or granddaughter and it will probably not be noticed. It may even become a funny story some day.
I would fix it because that's what I would do . An older lady taught me and she was a ripper lol had to be close to perfect or I had to rip it:);)
I always do too Carolyn. I wouldn't be satisfied otherwise.
yes cause every time u look at it you see the mistake lol:):)
My seam ripper and I are very close friends.
I am not a quilter and do not see any flaw. It is adorable ands will love it. 😍 Hugs > Nan
Fault? What fault? Well done!
Thank you Lidia. Your comment put a smile on my face.
I love it as it is. Are you talking about the placement of the blocks? That seems a bit random, but due to the use of all those colourful rectangles and squares it needs a very critical eye to call it a design flaw.
Yes the placement of one ballerina. Thank you for you response, it is helping me make up my mind.
Looks very pretty!
I don't notice a design flaw, but you could always say it was on purpose to show not all things are perfect.
Thank you. Your are sooo very correct. I am giving it another day or two to look at it before the final decision is made.
I'm not sure what you're talking about, but if there is something to be fixed now is the time to fix it, before it is quilted. I love the little ballerinas and actually have a piece of one of the fabrics.
Thanks Toogie, that is good to hear, that means it might not be noticed except by myself. Which piece of fabric do you have? All of the fabric has been from my stash.
I have the fabric that is on the bottom left corner, if the quilt is upright.
I am still trying to figure out which way to hold the phone to take a picture for this site. That is a fun piece of fabric. I have used it in other projects too.
