    When quilting in the corner of a top, remember to TRIPLE check to see that the back is out where it's supposed to be NOT tucked under so you need to UNDO all the stitching to get it out. :shock:

    Sigh... all these lessons just confirm why I like making tops WAY more than quilting. :x

    I thought I was the ONLY one that did this, hehe. When did 'ripping out' become politically uncorrect and 'unsew' came in?

    I'm with you there! MUCH MUCH MUCH prefer the tops. You must be pretty darn good though if it takes to 2780 to learn that.

    Were you hand quilting or machine? Not that it matters. Ripping is ripping. I've had to rip while on the long arm without taking it off the frames. Hope I don't have to do it again.

    Machine--very tight stitches so the paper would rip easily afterwards. :roll:

    I'm almost done quilting baby top #2. One more to go, but since I'm keeping that one, it can wait. Or, maybe I should finish it now while I'm practiced up. The new tops ideas are calling so loudly!

    I did not realize that was lesson # 2781---my manual stops at lesson # 2468. I guess that is why I have repeatedly made this mistake myself. :)

    I feel your pain, Karla. And it always happens when we think everything is going so well.

    That is so true! Everything was going well. But, as is my usual fashion, I was sewing between doing wash loads, answering emails, and taking water to horses... I need to focus. :roll:

    Been there, done that, more times than I can count. I soooo much prefer piecing to quilting....except when the quilting is going really well....which is when I find a glitch and have to unsew!!!!!!!
