Quilter's OCD

Not often am I extremely particular regarding my quilts.  I may lose a point here and there, stretch a block to get it to work.  But when I posted my first picture of the my Grand Illusion I noticed my inside 4 patch units were going every which way.

Dh said he thought it looked wonderful and didn't even notice until I pointed it out to him. The more I looked at it the more it bothered me.  So this week I actually unpicked the seams and turned those 4 patches.
DH laughed and said that he didn't know I was so OCD.  I didn't either but I am glad I took the time to do it.

I finished the letter "Z" for my words of wisdom red work quilt.
The Made by, and started on my name block.

I also made a little label for the baby quilt I am making for my niece.
I had a couple of free days because my ex-husband is visiting the Detroit area for the first time to see the grandsons and daughter.  I intended to do some weeding of the flowerbeds and garden, but the daily rain has created muddy, mucky beds so darn, guess I am just going to have to sew.

Your Grand Illusion came out great! I didn't notice that you had turned the four patches and I'm impressed that you picked them out and fixed them. Can't wait to see your Words of Wisdom quilt all put together. Have fun sewing tomorrow. Stay out of the rain!

Your quilt is so beautiful! Nice to see your embroidery blocks and that sweet label!

I couldn't even see the difference, but my OCD would have come out if I had the same situation. Sometimes I think I can let something go, but then it starts bugging me and I have to fix it. I love all the embroidery blocks you've been making and that label is so cute!

I didnt see it until you pointed it out but yeah. I agree fix it if it bothers you. Myself I would have said it was a God's patch like the Amish. nobody but Him is perfect. LOL love your sweet label for Violet

Goodness you've been busy! I've gotten little to no stitching done - I'm still cleaning house after my daughter and her two teens moved out. :) blessings, marlene

I couldn't see any thing wrong with it but know I will have to take something out that no one but me has noticed

I love your quilt, I could never make a quilt with that many pieces! I had to unpick 3 sets of my 4 patches to make sure the blocks were going the same way.
