    Ahhhh annoying!!!

    So I'm merrily rolling along working on this quilt. It's the 4 patch Jacobs Ladder with white. SOOOO I'm about a third of the way through and I realize that I've been pressing to the WHITE on one particular part of every block! And in order to fix it, I'd have to dissasemble every single block! SO the conundrum is to keep making the same mistake on the rest of the blocks for uniformity, or fix it on the rest of them but then I'm afraid it will then make the mistakes obvious! arugh! (

    I hate it when that happens I think I would just proceed as I have already done and don't point it out to anyone. Use white batting and it won't show to anyone but you

    Look at it and decide if it bothers you. If it does bite the bullet and undo. I find if I do a 'mess up' and it bothers me and I continue it will end up being the only thing I see. If it doesn't really bother you do it all the same. It's yours

    Let it go. Nothing is going to blow up or die. SOMETIMES, you have to iron toward light, anyway.

    Yeah, it bothers me, but NO WAY am Ingoing to undo all those. A set of 8 averages 2 1/2 hours and I have 4 sets. Gonna have to bite the bullet and cringe as I finish it. Lol. Inthink youre right though, the batting and backing will hopefully hide it a bit. The wonderful person its for wont notice and even if she did she wouldnt care. :-)

    Just snip the seam at each intersection and repress to the other side. That's what every instructor I have taken a class from has said do when this happens.
    Got fabric?

    That's what I would do, too.

    That was a great reply, GrannieAnnie.
