    May I be a great comfort to all of you!

    I just got through quilting a little baby quilt - quite proud of it, if I must say so myself. When lo and behold I turn it over and find ... well check the pics and see. I laughed out loud and hope you do too - better to laugh than cry, right?

    The backing is flannel and the little triangle is from another project that was ready and waiting -- too close to the sewing machine, I reckon.

    I'll rip --- tomorrow!

    Applique the edges down and pretend it was intentional.
    Love the quilt.

    LOL at QuiltsRfun - then I have to include a little triangle applique on all future projects, because it becomes my signature design idea, right?

    I feel your frustration. I did something similar - part of the item that I was quilting somehow got caught up and I re-sewed over it. I was about 3/4 way through when I discovered what had happened. I have just spent 3 hours unpicking it all. Needless to say I was not very happy with myself.
