If it's a quick, easy, no-brainer blanket to turn inside out, I put the backing, batting, and top in the wrong order, and I don't notice till I've sewed and trimmed and go to turn it....arggghhhh!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
(I have pinned and pinned to match my seams on sewing 2 long rows together, removing the pins as I sew, only to find when I get to the end my bobbin has run out of thread way back at the start!! )
LOL, been there done that!! Many times over! Why can't someone invent a continuous feed bobbin!

Whatever tool you need will hide from you. Even if you 'JUST USED IT'
No matter how many places you have for cats and dogs to lay, they will always choose your current project as their new favorite spot.
You've got 3 inches of a quilt to do to be DONE and you run out of thread. Completely.
You finally have a "free day" to quilt and some one else has other plans for you :0(.
The faster you go....the more you have to rip......
There are days when it is quite clear....your brain is not working at all......

Just because as a quilter, you use a sewing machine, it does not mean you can alter clothing or sew a seam on a piece of leather.
