Scrap Houses

I have a few more houses completed. Take a close look. See anything wrong? On three of my five blocks I have the door and window pieces in the wrong place. Duh! How did I do that? No clue. I have to be more careful.

Now, here is the dilemma: do I take them apart and make them right, or do I pretend that I did it on purpose to offer visual interest? With 360 houses yet to go in this project, I had better decide right now.
What would you do?


  1. This is your personal preference - I have about 60 houses done and they are about 50/50 in which side the door is on. I'm not stressing over them. But it is your quilt - and yes, now is the time to decide.

  2. I didn't even notice - DUH!! I think they look just fine - I would leave them alone - and pretend that you did it on purpose. You could always do an "I Spy" thing on the label - see if anyone looking at the quilt can find them. ;))

  3. Your houses look great! I would leave them but it is up to you and how much you think it will bug you. Maybe make a few more the "wrong" way so it kind of evens out.

  4. Leave them alone! No one but you would ever notice and I always have some sort of mistake in my quilts. My daughters even had me work in a 'mistake" just so it would be a 'mama quilt'. Your houses look great and sometimes "wonky" is good!

  5. I would leave them as is because no two houses are exactly alike. They look great! I still have 'one'.
