    I love starting posts like this on my different boards that I am a part of.

    The point of this thread is to tell us about something that just ticks you off or irritates you when you are quilting.

    An example will be this, it will also count as my first...

    I hate it when...the ruler moves when I'm cutting my fabric for my blocks.

    Now it's your turn!

    I hate it when I find a great deal on fabric I love and buy it with nothing particular in mind. Then, when I go to use it there is not quite enough. And OF COURSE .. they sold it all out.

    I hate it when I have pinned and turned and repinned and looked and even used a magnifying glass to make sure my points are right and then sew it up,turn it over and see it is a least 3 or 4 threads off. Makes me crazy.

    The directions don't make sense and I can't complete what I'm working on.

    ...when I'm sewing along and realize I ran out of bobbin thread 48' ago (after I've pulled out all the pins - because you're not *supposed* to sew over pins). Sew you pull out the quilt. Repin. Wind the bobbin, and pick up where you left off.

    I have an indicator that tells me... but if you don't pay attention... It should be a really bright neon light... :-) :-)

    I don't follow directions because they don't make sense, and of course, I have to redo the block because I was wrong!
