    yes I am making a log cabin quilt out of purples, have not done one in awhile and realized that I was not piecing the colors the right way. It would end up being extremely small, or would have to go with all new fabrics. decided that either way I need to go buy more fabric but am ripping out the sides that are not right. OUT OF 18 blocks. UHHHH At least I know I am not alone.... right? Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

    I prefer to call it unsewing, as I am a frequent user of the seam ripper. I did some rip rip rip of my own today. It did make my project look much nicer after the re-do. You were most definitely not alone.

    You were doing that fun froggie stitch...rippit..rippit. We have all been there, done that. This is usually when I take a break and start fresh. I hate to take anything out.
