This Just In! Quilter Makes Mistake....and LEAVES It!!!

I've been working so many hours lately...old women should not have to work, much less have 3 jobs! I was so tired last night that I went to sleep on the couch at 8:00 or so. I woke up at 1AM and started working again. Then I was wide awake (a relatively dangerous time for me-lol). At 2:00 AM or so, I decided to stitch together the latest Virtual Quilting Bee block:
I'm making these blocks from Daisy Cottage fabric from the shop. I'm trying to use other fabric than my "usual". As you can see, my piecing was okay but I put one block in sideways....sigh. I might take it out and I might LEAVE IT! Gasp! I probably will cave and fix it though. It will always jump off the quilt and shake its little virtual finger at me. This is the danger of 2 AM sewing. So back to work for me today. I'm writing about, of all things, adverse possession (don't ask). Where's a law degree when you need one.... I hope you all have a great day! XO and cheery wave from Bev

The block is cute as can be and I would leave it as is. Just tell yourself you planned it that way and forgive yourself..

I am still looking for your mistake....

Mistakes???? I call it creative license! I just retired so I feel your pain of working!

You keep my kind of hours. John laughs about sometime we meet in the hall - he's getting up and I'm going to bed. He's a morning person and I definitely am not!!

I've learned to not quilt after taking benedryl! I didn't notice any mistake until you told me what to look for but I know where you're coming from. Perfectionist.

Yep, Late night and too long since I worked on a project can cause many Froggin' sessions at my house. It's worth fixing, sorry!
