    So I posted pictures of my rail fence quilt back in December/January. I am a mother of a wonderful 5 year old, a wife, and I am currently attending college. I have one week off of school starting yesterday. I thought since I haven't sewn for 5 or 6 months it was time I get my stuff back out this week. I pinned about 100 pairs of strips together last night to be sewn tonight. I proceed to sew one set of strips together, and I have pinned them backwards ALL OF THEM. Instead of pinning them front to front, I pinned them back to back. Now I get to repeat the step I made last night, only the right way. *sigh* needed to vent!

    i feel your pain.

    i always discover mistaks like that after i've already sewn them together.

    see? you're already a step ahead on the learning curve. :thumbup:
