    Done! (nope, here's some strings)...DONE! (nope, missed a SITD line)...

    Binding on! Yay!
    I thought I was done.
    Found a few hangy strings
    Buried them.
    DONE (or so I thought)
    Still more strings
    Now DONE!
    Nope, check the back, and there's missing SITD lines
    Sew 'em up.
    Check again.
    OMG, STILL a couple more! (log cabin...LOTS of lines)
    Will I seriously EVER be done with this quilt?!
    Tell me I'm not the only one experiencing this madness...

    Only way to cure this for sure is to stop looking.......if you can bear to do so!

    Did this a few weeks ago while trying to hand the quilt off so that she could carry it to my other sister (versus mailing). Every time I was folding it to put give to her, after I had stowed my needle, I would find another set of threads.

    A friend buries the thread as she goes along, just keeps the needle attached to her machine. I may have to try that. I find the process of burying the threads akin to having my wisdom teeth removed.

    Cheers, K

    I could try that...the time spent burying threads actually gets me out of the "quilting posture" though, and gives me that break that everyone here so heartily recommended. But it's a great idea!

    I was FMQ a DNP and in the process I found two seems that we're not sewn. So no, you are not the only one!

    I had 40 to bury at once on a quilt... It quickly became my least favorite part about quilting. I've got ADD to start with so the tedium drove me nuts. I've also thought about sticking a piece of painters tape down on the threads so that I can quickly find them if I am sinking them later. I decided on a continuous line design for the Irish Chain I did so that I didn't have to stop and start at each block.

    Cheers, K
