    Oh, yes, right sides together!
    If we could only remember that BEFORE we sew a bunch of pieces together!

    Been there, done that, just the other day ------AGAIN.

    I don't have to do it on purpose. It has a mind of it's own and gets its kicks by doing all of those nasty things to me on purpose. No conscience (sp). LOL

    Gets real confusing making the tube pillowcases where wrong side of bottom piece is against wrong side of middle piece.

    LOL and yeah, I'm laughing AT you because this is one time that it's not me. LOL LOL LOL But don't feel too badly, we've all been there many times. I was zipping along one day and had 19 out of 20 blocks completed when I realized that half of them were going the wrong way.

    I was putting sashing on a quilt and then sewing the rows together today. If you put the side up that has all the seams you can make sure they go the way you want them -- right? But since I had to piece all the sashing and the sashing was on the bottom -- yeah -- RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER!! :lol: :lol:

    I did the same thing with two sets of strips today. Couldn't believe it when I went to iron them and they were together wrong. So don't feel alone.

    I hate it when I figure out that I messed up AFTER I pressed. Ripping stitching that has been pressed is irritating and I do it a lot.

    There is a saying if you have never gone off a horse then you aren't a horseback rider. I think we could also say if you have never sewn 2 pieces together wrong then you aren't a quilter.

    I just did this today!! I'm best friends with my seam ripper, but wasn't in the mood for it today. I went to the ironing board instead. Tomorrow is a new day and hopefully a better one,lol!!!

    I just KNEW you would all relate!! I had stitched two strips and pressed them, had pinned the next piece on the ironed strip, before I realised that I had sewn both strips (admittedly only about 15" long) & pressed them before I realised they were wrong.
    All fixed now. Thanks for laughing WITH me!!!
