How true!  And sometimes the forever is self-imposed. Not liking a block that is 2 rows up and 4 over, and you've already sewn your rows together.

I'd put all three with a few blocks and see which one knocks your socks after a week or so.

In *that* case, I'd need to think about it for awhile.   Is the quilt for me? I might live with it.

Is it for someone else?  I'd probably moan and groan,  then fix it. Sigh

Probably just for me, but I have to tweak everything until I'm happy. It's OK, just part of the process for me.

Sue when that happens to me I just go get my seam ripper an remove the thing that is not right..............then you are ready to move on and fix it. When I sew things wrong I will rip it apart ASAP and not put it down because then it is hard to come back to. If the unsewing part is already done then it is so much easier to want to just move it forward.

Ami, that's what I usually do, too.  But in this case, I needed to see the big picture before I saw the block that wasn't going to work.  (It's the Abraham Lincoln quilt).  It has so many colors and at least 2 per fblock, that I could only see the problem once I had them all laid out.  I thought everything was OK until I got to that last set of 2 rows. I just have to rip up and down seams and put a different block in.  That'll be today's priority.

Hopefully you get your new block made and put in so you can check this one off your list.

3 quilts bound and done.  I'm especially pleased with how this binding turned out.  I did do the "dawn soak" on this quilt since I did not know if any of the blacks I was given had been washed.  And I was a bit concerned about the noodle pack too.  Glad I did.  The water turned dark gray right away.

this one I had prewashed the fabrics so I was pretty comfortable this one would not bleed.  I did a mix of the fabrics for the binding.
