    I finished this top the other day, and I got it basted. Started quilting in the hoop today with a free quilting design I found on the internet.
    I ended up putting the quilt in my hoop wrong, and the design (8,000 stitches) stitched where I didn't want it to.
    I started ripping out the 1,000 or so that were stitched, and I ended up putting my seam ripper through the fabric! AHHH!
    Now, there's a hole in the fabric, of a block in the middle of the quilt.
    I have to un-baste, make a new block, rip out seam after seam until I can get to the block, replace it, and restitch everything back together. Then more basting.
    I have re-digitized the design I wanted to use. It's the same size, but only 3,000 stitches total.
    I can't wait until the mess is taken care of. Blah!

    Each block was pieced in the hoop.

    The pin is next to the hole.

    Good for you for sticking to it. I'm the type who would set it aside and probably never get it done. It's beautiful.
