    Ugh

    Will I ever get to the point when I don't rip out as much as I sew???? And I'm definitely not inexperienced, either!

    I had that same thought today. It seemed like I was "unsewing" more today than sewing. I don't think I'm inexperienced either. It was just one of those days.

    I sympathize. A lot.

    I *am* inexperienced in quilting but not sewing. I had the "let's spend all day taking things out and resewing them ... eight times each" experience so badly with a project that I've just started it over as English paper piecing instead of machine piecing. It won't be perfect this way, but it'll be a whole lot closer and a whole lot more fun!

    I would just be happy with not putting holes in the fabric when I rip seams out. There has to be a better way...

    Get over it, and go on.. I just spent the last couple of hours with the scalpel.. It's extremely frustrating, but it is shows that you care the way it looks..

    Scrapy quilts have more love in them.
