This quilt was made for a co-worker who is expecting a baby in March.  I also made a tote bag which uses some of the same fabrics in the quilt.

I'm really aggravated that there's a fabric flaw smack dab in the middle of the quilt that I didn't see until I was finishing the binding.

I think this is fabulous.  I don't see a flaw, so I have to take your word for it.

Looks very nice.  I like the pattern that you chose.

It is beautiful and no one will know. I did the same thing on a table runner and no one is the wiser!

That quilt is beautiful!  I love the bold colors and patterns together.  I totally feel your pain on the unnoticed (until too late, of course) flaw in the fabric.  SO FRUSTRATING!  On the bright side, I agree with everyone else that it isn't noticeable, at least not from the picture.

Totally can't see the flaw, so I wouldn't sweat it too much.  I love that pattern - it's going into the long list of things I'd like to try some day!

And the tote is really cute, too!  I love how it matches bc of same materials, but looks so totally different from the quilt.

This quilt makes me smile. Do you sew strips first and then cut the triangles?  What a happy quilt for a baby!
