I hate it when that happens

I was happily getting the hang of freemotion hooked swirls again and thinking I might get the quilt quilted this afternoon.  My stitch length is not even, but overall the quilt looks good, I think.


Then I tried to smooth out the next section to quilt and couldn’t.  Uh oh.  I didn’t, did I?  Humbug! Yes, I did.



I failed to notice the side of the quilt sandwich sneaking under the quilt and I sewed it to the back of the quilt. At least I noticed before too many more stitches were made, so I don’t have too much reverse sewing to do!

  3. Ugh, I hate that! But you quilting looks very nice so far. At least it's a short section to repair.

  4. Oh yeah--been there, done that! It seems like it always happens when things seem to be going especially smoothly--very suspicious--lol!
    I hope it didn't take too long to fix--the quilting looks awesome!

  6. Oh, I did that very thing a couple of weeks ago on a crib quilt a friend asked if I could do for her in a hurry. First three sides I was so careful and all went well. Got too comfortable and did this very thing in three places along the last side. Arrgghh!!

  10. Every now and the it happens, and it's so frustrating. It's always nice to know that you aren't the only one.

  12. Yup, totally hate it when that happens!! At least you noticed pretty quickly. . . I quilted about a foot square like that once. . . I feel your pain :) And yes, I've done it more than once. . . must be a lesson that I personally need to learn over and over again! LOL
