    right sides together. Remember that last night I sewed twenty blocks wrong sides together. Took them apart and resewed them correctly. I told DW I bet that is not the last time I do that. As I have said before I am a Quality Control Manager attention to detail.

    Yep, I think we've all been there. Could be worse ya know...I was working on this paper piecing project last night that I am finding to be difficult and I would do fine until the last piece I sewed onto foundation....then you flip the paper back and trim to 1/4" seam allowance, well not only did I sew that piece on wrong, but I cut off the piece that was suppose to remain....I did this not just once, but twice....ugh!!

    Feel any better?? Hang in there.

    :oops: Me, too. And don't even ask how many times I have sewn the final ends of binding together wrong!! It's a wonder I don't wear them out ripping stitches before I get that right.

    LMBO. One time I was sewing HST, I sewed on either side of the line, cut them apart THEN realized that I had sewn one square right side facing....I proceeded to get another square and sew the two offending triangles to the square right sides together. WITHOUT REMOVING THE OFFENDING FABRIC! The reason for this you ask....I was trying to avoid having that now bias edge stretch. for whatever reason I don't know, I thought I could sew the new seam and then take out the bad one. LMBO! And no this didn't happen when I first started sewing/quilting. This was just within the last three months. I actually put THOUGHT into it because this was going to be "easier"! I threw the whole thing in the trash and started over with two new squares.

    I've done that so many times it's not even funny. I've been sewing since I was 12 and now I'm 65. Should know better, don't you think?

    I always sew plain colors together wrong. Mostly the light plain colors, because I cannot tell which side is right or wrong.
