The answer to "One of these things is not like the other"


Since many of you said you didn't find my unplanned humility block, I'll tell you which one it is.

For this particular setting... Each row is opposite the previous one. The pinwheels go to the right in one row and to the left in the next. The 4-patches (16 patches) also must be set either with the light block in the upper right or the dark block in the upper right. The light square SHOULD set up between the light triangles, and the dark square SHOULD set up between the DARK triangles.

In the lower left of this photo, two blocks from the left and two blocks from the bottom, there is a light square against the dark triangles. I should have rotated it 90 degrees. This really points up the value of looking at your quilt through the camera lens - it sees everything!

Not much of a problem, apparently! LOL Congrats to those of you with EAGLE eyes!

I still don't see the wrong square. I guess my eagle eyes are failing me.

I think I see what you mean but it's such a minor thing that I'd hardly call it a humility block.

Jeanne said...

I've been studying it, but I still can't find it! It's not like anything is spelled backwards. VBG

Anne Ida said...

Ok, so after studying the picture thoroughly and following your directions I found it... But unless you point it out, no one is going to see!

Even with instructions I am still struggling to find it! Tracey

I still can't find it...

But I just got this pattern... (My GF gave me a book that includes it.)

Su Bee said...

Well for Petes sake -- after a LOOOONG time scrutinizing I finally found it. I don't think that's much of a problem really, if a bunch of quilters can't find it! LOL - I agree with Joyce; it's not too humiliating.
:-)

Is it really and error if it take that long to find it?! I really like this pattern...humility block and all!

Once you get that awesome border on, no one will notice. It's lovely and I only wish I had time to make one also.

meggie said...

I think it just adds to the charm of the whole quilt! I love it.

Libby said...

Still don't see it *s* . . . but I'm okay with that.

atet said...

Ok, now that you point it out, I can see it (odd since those "magic eye" poster thingies never worked for me) -- but ya know? It's not that noticable even when you know what you're looking for!

Darlene said...

I still don't see it - that's OK! I love this quilt, Elaine.

Lynn Dykstra said...

Elaine, this is really pretty.

Eileen said...

After you point it out I see it but--- Haven't you heard that only GOD makes them perfect. Who cares it's a beautiful quilt.

Patti said...

Certainly nothing to worry about! It took me a while to find it even after I knew where it was! It's a lovely quilt top Elaine - this is one I definitely want to do one of these days.

I really had to look for that. I couldn't see it at all, then only found it because of your explanation. I love the quilt centre - it is worth getting the border just right if you love it. All the squares look a bit busy I think, but I'm sure you've had plenty of good ideas from bloggers.

Mama Koch said...

I looked and looked at your quilt when you first posted it and never saw the mistake. NOW...I can see it.
My brain is finally starting to work after moving!
Keep warm!
