    Yes, it has. That is when Jack the ripper comes to visit.

    At that point, I usually get out the graph paper and colored pencils to see if I “invented” a new design by accident, if not, “frog sewing” party for me. Rippit rippit. Lol.

    If this is for your 6" block project, I say leave it and you've created a new block design! Such pretty fabrics and it still makes a pretty block!

    Yep! I've even sewn the wrong side to the right side before. I've especially done crazy things like that when I am tired & should have stopped sewing hours before the mishap. I tell people I can rip out faster than I can sew because I'm such an expert when it comes to ripping.

    I have done similar things. At least it was a simple fix and you didn't find it after it was sewn into a quilt!

    I’m pretty sure we have all done it, and will continue to do it when we are not paying attention.

    Yes, of course! But, it so nice to catch it at this stage and not much later when it is hard to fix. To be honest, there is a table runner in my closet that has one section in a bargello sequence backwards-and- it is still there. So, fix it and move forward. I should take my own advice!

    And don't do what I have done - take it out and redo it the same wrong way!

    Heavens yes. Nothing like a great seam ripper to correct those problems.

    No I didn't quilt make that mistake but made a whopper of one and didn't catch it till I had it on the frame, had quilted all around the block excluding the block in error. Had to frog all around the block, turn it correctly and then hand stitch it back to the quilt. It was not easy and I'm sure I swore under my breath about how stupid of a mistake that was. Like how didn't I see that before it was put on the frame??????? Oh well, its fixed and I now find if I take a photo of the quilt and view it on the PC screen I can see the mistakes easier than just looking at it on the design wall. Don't know why but it just works better for me that way. Surely don't want to go thru that again.
