Oh my! I’m glad to know I’m not alone in my quilting boo-boos. Some of your stories were so sad! Thank you for sharing! It was really tough to pick a winner. I do know that I don’t want to sit next to Kerry during a quilting class. I could totally relate to Brooke buying the same fabric twice and still not being able to match her project! Mary cracked me up because her mishap sounded just like something I would do–all prepped for her retreat and then forgot a main ingredient–her jelly roll! I must say that Barb had a very hard time getting her quilt backing sized right and then she had to give in and put a seam down the middle–just what the longarm quilter preferred NOT to have. Instead of doing that, I usually sew the wrong lengths of backing together–I guess I mean I start to sew the length to the width and then wonder what happened when I get to the end of one of the pieces. D’oh!
The winner, by a quarter inch seam, is Amanda who had a four-patch turned wrong in her Jacob’s ladder, had it quilted and then appliqued a four-patch over the offending four-patch, but the “new” four-patch was also oriented wrong.
Really, thanks to everyone who played along–it was fun. Thanks for the birthday wishes. The cake was/is delicious.
Oh, and I did get to work on the Savannah Satchel. Of course, I went straight for that elephant and then found my piece of fuschia velvet for his little ear. Awwwwwww. Well, he still needs his ear, but at least I found the fabric.
For those here in the U.S., have a safe Memorial Day holiday!
