Would this bother you?


Yesterday I sewed this quilt top together. The blocks have been patiently waiting thier turn in a box in the garage. They were pinned together and ready to go. Why did it take me one and a half years to sew it together? I have no idea, but now it is a top and ready to quilt.
After taking the picture, I looked at it and immediately saw a problem. My picture taker looked at it and saw the problem too. He is 6. He says, that's ok mom, you can just unsew it tomorrow. I said, no, I think I will just leave it. He says, no, mom, tomorrow you will unsew it and fix it. I said, I'm sure it will be ok and that nobody will mind the small problem. He insists that I fix it.
Can you see the problem? Does it bother you?

lol ... I'm sorry but I'm OCD enough to admit that I'd have to fix it ... and I stress "have to" unless I was giving it away then I would still think about it ... lol Can't wait to see it quilted .... you could always quilt a smiley face in this corner!

Well, if a six year old says - fix it - then if for no other reason than "training" follow thru..... better fix it.... just do it quick and get it out of the house..... and on to BETTER things...

Reminds me of asking my husband if he could see where some 4 patches were off last year on a baby quilt. "You mean right here? And Here? or were you just talking about the row you just added?" Needless to say, it got ripped out and redone since he pointed out two other areas before the one I was asking about! Personally, though, I was prepared to justify imperfection with, "You won't notice the quilt if there's a baby on it," or even, "It's going to get puked on, anyway."

I think a string quilt is so busy and primitive that a mistake can stay in. I do think you have to weigh the input of the 6 yr old.

Oh shoot, I would have to fix it. As soon as I saw it, that's all I could see. I've done that and it's has made me crazy.

Dang it anyway, I'd have to fix it. Now, if it was already on the quilting machine and half done, then I could live with it.

Sorry! But I would go nuts and have to fix it. The six year old will probably haunt you about it every time he sees the quilt. Not good for your self esteem after a while. Hmmm, sounds like I speak from experience, doesn't it?

I am with Mimi on this one. The teacher in me says that if I expect my child to fix his handwriting or his literature paper...then if he knows about my quilt then I better fix it.

What a pain, huh??

Are you a bit like me? Impatient to finish and have it GONE so that you can start the next?
