Purple Sensation

A couple of years ago my friend, Janine, gave me a bunch of squares of purple fabrics.  I do love purple!  Decided to make a bunch of HST's and put together this quilt top from them. 

 Originally I was going to border in bright yellow and the 2nd border would be purple and yellow.  Couldn't find any purple and yellow fabric that I wanted but found this wonderful purple and green fabric.  So changed to a tiny green border and added the outer border.

Would you believe..........I just noticed a big mistake!!!
Now, do I take it apart and fix it or just leave it?

Update:  Only took 10 minutes but offending HST is now turned 1/4 turn and sewn back in place.  
Quilt is much happier now.

My goal over the next few weeks is to gather all the partially finished quilt tops and finish them.  I'm not going to worry about the backing or the quilting for now.  Just finish the top!!

Hopefully that will clean up my sewing room of some piles of unfinished items.  I have made myself a promise not to start any more..........not even one more.........quilt until I have cleaned out all the partially finished tops.  

Let's see if I can do just that!

Happy Quilting!                              Lynda

Love your quilt! Did you come up with the design? Of course I had to look for the mistake and found it, but only after I read about it. I think it will bug you if you don't change it, so I would if I were you (but I'm not, so you do what's right for you)!!!Good plan to finish those tops, I'm trying to do the same. Afterward we can start something new... hahaha....!
