    Oh Brother! This Baby quilt is going to go in the garbage!!! I just pinned it and sewed it together to turn rightside out, trimmed all the edges and Like a doo doo I sewed the batting in the middle so now I have to take it all back apart and hope for the best! Please tell me others have done this too.

    Haven't done that yet. Notice I said "yet" - I've done plenty of other dopey things!

    I haven't gotten that far. I got it started and caught myself. Hopefully it will turn out OK.

    Yup, done that. One time I finished a top and was quilting it when I noticed that I'd sewn one of the squares in one block (top row, of course) wrong side out! Left it like that and nobody ever mentioned it!
