    Aaaargh!

    I was really on a roll FMQ'ing this fleece-backed car seat blanket and patting myself on the back for my skills. Then I turned it over. At least I know I'm not alone - someone posted a photo almost exactly like this last week

    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Looks like a design decision to me.

    looks easy enough to clip out.

    Opps, well at least you know how to get it out without removing the stitching.

    I've done that same thing several times. Luckily I have been able to just cut around the threads and pull the piece out very carefully.

    I think you should write your name and the date on it and call it the label.
