~ I Don't Flip Houses ~

Was having fun this morning in the sewing room .

I am trying to finish up a quilt I start a while back.
It's from Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville site The block is called 'Happy Scrappy Houses'. All going good......... I place the finished rows on the floor to look at the progress when I noticed one block was not laying flat so I take it to the machine rip out some seams and make a few adjustments then sew it all back. By this time I am adding another row of blocks and feeling pretty darn good........ I then put the finished quilt top on the floor again to admire my work .......That is when I saw it!!!! The house block I fixed was FLIPED upside down!! What you think...flip it or leave it???
It's laying so nice and flat now that I fixed it I hate to mess with it !! HAHA!!

Thanks for your comment. You could always leave the house. The amish have to have a mistake in each of their quilts because God is the only one perfect.

Leave it! It is in a perfect place and it looks intentional. That's your conversation piece for the quilt!

It's sort of fun as it is, but if it's going to bother you every time you look at it then I suppose you should flip it.

Considering the title of this quilt and the whimsy of the blocks being off-kilter, I think you have to leave the one block upsidedown. I agree with Elain, Littlebook, and Peg. But QuiltSue has a good point, too. I vote for leaving it, and thanks for your kind words on my blog!

Hi Betty,
thanks so much for visiting, and for your nice comments! Your quilt is so neat! I love how the houses are "flipped"! And little LuLu is a sweetie!

My vote is definitely leave it in. I think it adds charm to the quilt. Your quilt top is wonderful!

What a fun quilt! I love your wonky houses. I think it's absolutely fine the way it is - it's supposed to be wonky, right?
