I have always loved old quilts that have a block turned the wrong way or a bit of wonky applique! I like the handmade quirky look! I love the Amish philosophy that only God is perfect and the fact that they sometimes make a deliberate mistake.
I alway try to be accurate and follow the pattern instructions, but let's just say I have never had to make a humility block on purpose! After all does it really matter? I don't profit from my quilts and I don't enter competitions, no-one has ever rejected a quilt I made on a cold winter's night because a block was upside down!
So when several people pointed out that some of my four-patch blocks (orange & cream squares) for the Easy Street Mystery were the wrong way round (There's a right way?!!) my first thought was to leave them. The more I thought about it, the more I realised that yes, this would actually bother me. These squares form a second design when the top is sewn together, framing the blocks beautifully. You can see how nice Bonnie's looks (her's are grey/white)
