WIP Wednesday - Would This Bother You?

I'm FINALLY to the borders stage on my Pink & Chocolate quilt. You start off by doing the top and bottom first. Easy Peasy, right?  Well, not as much as I thought. Lining up the block border with a solid in between proved to be a harder task than it looks. Most of the blocks lined up (maybe only a hair off).... Then there is the one that is obvious.

Ripped out and resewn three times and this was the best I could get it :-( I give up!  It'll just have to do, and hopefully the quilting will hide the flaw. 

Fortunately, the intended recipient isn't a quilter so I doubt she'll notice. 

What do you think?  Should I try one more time to get it to line up or just let it be?

  1. I would absolutely let it be! (But I wouldn't have survived 3 tries to fix it, either...) It looks wonderful.

  2. From what I can tell, it looks great!

  3. Just let it be - I think it looks great :-) I'm glad you are enjoying the quilt along!

  4. I'd let it be, personally -- especially after three tries! BTW: Do you use a walking foot when you piece long strips together?

  5. I would let it be, the person receiving it will be thrilled no matter what you do.

  6. Yes, after three tries... Just let it go. Quilting is supposed to be fun, not frustrating. That's my motto. And I can tell you from my experience. Those little things may bother you at the time when you are working on them, but are soon forgotten. No one else will ever notice!
