I am trying to finish my very first quilt for my sister. she is visiting March 29th (her birthday). I made a charm square quilt. alternating between flowered print and black squares. I thought cause I have this nifty machine that does decorative stitches that I would do a decorative stitch around each black square to quilt it. well wouldnt you know that something under the feed dogs happened and jammed the thread causing the stitch to become shorter and shorter till it grabbed the material. Had to cut out the threads to get the quilt loose. then had to stitch rip the decorative stiching out. Have you ever had to rip out machine made decorative stitching!!!!!! never again. for a 5" long it took me over an hour! Please remind me when I have these bright ideas about this day. LOL
Of course on the bright side, at least it was only 5 inches. and not 25 blocks.
