Have you done this?

Pick! Pick! Pick!

Thought I would get some quilting done while David was at church this evening. I have to admit I usually use a long arm quilter to finish the quilts I make but lately I have become braver after watching Youtube videos. I have done 3 baby quilts so far and never had this happen!
This quilt is for the blog hop:

Going on right now @ Sew We Quilt , (lots of great stuff & giveaways), My day is November 25th, so I have to quilt and bind it fast. I thought maybe I hadn't pinned it right but no, I lift up the quilt to look under it for a real mess and see this instead!

I sewed the quilt to the tablecloth! I just had to laugh!
It was time to stop for the night!

Everyone messes up, you are not alone!

Have a great week!

Create, be unique, and laugh at your mistakes!

  2. I can't say I've done that, but it doesn't mean I wouldn't. If I had a longarm again, I would never quilt on my baby machine. =)

  3. you're right- laughter is the best way to deal with it! I sewed the fingertip of my quilting gloves to my quilt one time!

  4. No not tried that one yet but have stitched things to what I'm wearing before - which is not such a great look - as least it hasn't made any catwalks that I know of!

  9. I sewed my finger ------------ with the sewing machine. Broke the needle off in my finger and I am sure I have done every dumb mistake a quilter can do.

  10. ha! I've done a few really smart things like that myself! You are very wise to put it away for the night - sometimes powering through just isnt the right call. :)

  11. Glad I haven't pulled that trick yet... I was working on quilt squares and after chaining a lot of them, I realize I had sewn the wrong pieces together..
