Fixing the problem

This is what I worked on yesterday.  The blocks were seen together, 1/4" was folded in on all the raw edges and basted in place.  Then the row was basted to the quilt to cover the incorrectly placed blocks.  I needed to know their perimeter so that I would know where to stop and start stitching to replicate the quilting.  I used pins on the back of the quilt outline the area.  Then I slowly stitched over the existing quilting lines (locking stitches at every stop and start).  The quilting on the front looks a little wobbly, but it's better than the whole bottom row being out of order.  Tedious, but I just couldn't stand not fixing such an obvious mistake
