    Unless that flier was mighty thick.... I would have cut the brouchure off the backing and then let the water of a finial wash do the rest.... no way I'd pic that off!!!!

    I'm a lazy seam ripper.

    hehehe

    I think there is something to be said for having a quilting frame! I too have done something similar. I bought a mid-arm frame so I don't have to use the seam ripper as much!

    Don't feel bad. I sewed my FMQ slide to my quilt! This one you are suppose to tape it down & I had just laughed at a girlfriend for doing the same thing! Needless to say I had to rip also!

    Thank you my quilting family, I laughed at myself when I did it, but now I know I am not alone in dumb land. Quilt is done, doesn't look too bad for the first time. I did realize that I have to remember to breath. Also I noticed my mouth is a tiller. I seem to find myself pursing my lips in the direction I want to FMQ. What fun, huh?

    Thanks for the chuckle. It's funny only because most of us can relate :oops:

    I have FMQed the backing overhang to the back and was able to cut it away without harming the quilt. I will spend hours to do anything instead of ripping if I can keep from it.
    Most of us have done lots of things like that.

    A friend of mine has a long arm quilting business and she told me, if that ever happens to her in a quilt, she'll work the metal shaft out, cut it off with a wire cutter, then she smashes the pinhead with a hammer. Of course, this is a rare occurance. :lol:
