Woops...I spotted a Goof!

As I was getting my Frieda Anderson quilt ready to quilt I found a big mistake that I made when making it.  Can you see it?
Look closely at the borders...do you see it now? In class we cut the border strips and fused them to the body of the quilt and I didn't even see that I made that mistake. It is supposed to have short borders on the sides and longer borders on the ends.

As you can see, I fused the left side cut the ends off then fused the top and bottom borders and the right side last.  I never saw the goof until it was too late to do anything about it.

There are no seams to rip as it is all fused plus it is fused to the batting. Frieda's method is to fuse everything which was fun but maybe if it was a stitched piece I could fix it...oh well, I still like it.

I think it is so funny that you can be looking at something for days and not see the mistake. The brain makes us see what we want to see I guess. Of course now that is all I can see when I look at it.

Happy Quilting and keep your eyes open!

I've done that too. The quilt was in a quilt show and everything and I didn't notice the block in the border was turned the wrong way until I was looking at the pictures taken at the show. Red face!!

I don't see the error.
Only I can see a nice quilt and lovely colors.

Could it be you did it that way to keep the colors balanced? It looks like that to me.

I think it looks fantastic. My very first quilt instructor laid down one rule: Don't call other people's attention to your errors. I, too, am prone to do that. In reality your piece looks amazing! :)
