One of these things ...

just doesn't belong.

One of These Things (Is Not Like The Others)

Words and Music by Joe Raposo and Jon Stone

One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn't belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song?

Did you guess which thing was not like the others?
Did you guess which thing just doesn't belong?
If you guessed this one is not like the others,
Then you're absolutely...right!

Thank you once again, Sesame Street. I did not notice that one of these things did not belong. Do you spot it? This is my zigzag quilt, based on Amanda Jean's tutorial. I had already cut the sides, and put on one side of the inner border before I noticed. I thought I was so careful when putting it together. I constantly checked my layout photo before I sewed them. Luckily, for me it is at the end so I am going to try to take it out. Oops, did I give it away?

My zigzags are a bit smaller than the tutorial because I had a very limited amount of the light blue but I really wanted to use it. The quilt is for family friends who had a boy a few months ago. The husband is Canadian and the wife is American, so I thought the fabric choices were a good compromise. Paddington Bear is going to be used as a border print.

oh dear I do see it...light blue in the middle row! don't you just hate that when it happens. I am glad you posted this because I was just looking for that pattern and couldn't remember who posted it. Thanks

Oh No! What I have to do sometimes is turn things backward or upside down and look again. Otherwise I totally miss things just like this! Your eye sees what it wants or expects most of the time.

I had to look 3 times before I noticed the error. Hopefully you can just remove that piece and fix it fairly easily. I love the sesame street reference in your post. Cute!

i've done that... but usually its in the center or a place where it is impossible to fix... yours should be easy to fix and it'll be done in a jiffy!

I had to really look to see the error. So funny and not so funny, all at the same time. I think we've all been there! Great quilt!
