    I just made the first cut on fabric from a kit for my granddaughter's baby quilt and cut it 1/2 inch too short!!! Yikes. Guess I will splice the end. I hate it when I'm stupid. Duh!!

    I'm back on here reading because I just cut 2.5" squares that should've been five inches! To me it means put the cutter down and try again tomorrow, LOL.

    Lessons learned - yesterday I learned that I need to keep my cutting table neater. While cutting one fabric, I sliced a hole in a nearly one. At LQS prices, that's an expensive error.

    If you press your seam well, it probably won't show.

    Be gentle on yourself, we all make mistakes.
