I got the blocks for the double 4 patch together.

Wouldn’t you know it, I got one 4 patch turned the wrong way and it is right smack dab in the middle! Ugh! I did not notice until I looked at the picture.

I wanted to get it in the frame but I am a bit stumped on the borders.

Of course, I’ll have to fix that one block first.

    I like the cranberry border, isn’t it funny how you can see a mistake in a photo? I’ve done that…….many times!

    Sometimes it happens but…..grrrrr ! Not fun !
    The red border, without any hesitation !

    no, just remember the Amish say that Only God is Perfect. leave it as is, it may be regarded as quirky.

    To me, it looks like the center block is meant to be!! Don’t worry about it. Maybe if it had been on the side it would make a difference! This color combination always reminds me of Tomato soup…and I believe it’s because I saw a pattern call that using these colors! It’s really pretty! Red border for me too!

  5. Didn’t notice that block. It’s a design choice! I like the red border.

  6. Janet O. says:

    But the turned block forms a little heart in the center. : )
    I vote for the last border, too. The suggestion of the use of it for an inner border with an outer border of one of the greens might be worth auditioning.

  7. Katy, it is SO pretty! There is just something about those old tried and true patterns that makes me smile. (And of course you know I like red!)

  8. That is a very lovely quilt top! So effective in pattern to draw the eye and the restrained color palette just works perfectly!

  9. Although I generally do not care for borders, on this lovely (love it!) quilt I really like the cranberry fabric as a border!

    As the other ladies have said, I didn’t see the wrong patch until you mentioned it and then I still had to search for it. I favor either the top or bottom border. It really doesn’t matter because once YOU quilt it, it will look great. Can’t wait to see it finished.

  11. Teresa says:

    I’ve done that before. I like the middle one. Happy quilting.

  12. Sandi says:

    I like the middle border. I didn’t see the block either until you mentioned it. The top is looking really pretty. Hugs,

    I like checks. Goes with the 4 patch nature.

  14. I still don’t see the ‘wrong’ block! LOL I like the cranberry border too. πŸ™‚

  15. Malinda says:

    I like the cranberry border, too, or what about a narrow cranberry inner border with the green floral as a wider outer border? I recently bought beautifully pieced quilt top and backing for $20 at a local thrift shop- I’m guessing it wasn’t ever finished because two block were turned. I spent less than 30 minutes fixing it and had a beautiful quilt, well worth taking the time to fix! Glad you caught it before quilting!

  16. Drat! I hate when that happens! I like the look of the last border fabric. Good luck!

    I would leave the “wrong” four-patch! Didn’t notice it before you told it!
    It adds “character”! πŸ™‚
    Best wishes!
