it's sad how something that was once a sign for peace became something to be feared or hated. Angry  If the swastika is not slanted, and is instead straight, then it is not a Nazi swastika, but instead a Hindu symbol for peace.  But if your worried, i'd do as other suggest and instead just recover the sides.  What ever you decide, you did a great job, and as you said, it was an accident!

I don't find Nazism humorous, but I died laughing when I saw the thumbnail of this, because I just knew there was an "Oops!" story behind it.  It's so absurd!
Great job on the finished product--one day, I'll start quilting...

We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.

I would put applique dots or even large buttons in the "quadrants" - that would make it 100% a Hindu (and Buddhist!) symbol of well-being and good fortune.

Here's a pretty picture from Diwali, the festival of lights:

And another clearer picture of what I mean:

I second what the person above me is saying. Too pretty to just paste with other stuff or toss.

This just made my day. Hahaha. That's totally something I would end up doing without realizing it until it was nearly done or done.  If I made that kind of stuff, anyways.

Well, the popular meaning of a swastika is to represent the german nazi party, but try and remember that for Hindis it is a good symbol!
