    Some days it just doesn't pay to get up and try to work on a quilt. I messed up one block and had to take it completely apart and then re-do it. Upon the re-do I realized that I had set the center block embroidery straight instead of on point. So now I have had to change my design. I hope that tomorrow is much better, because I have walked away from the machine today. Hope that everyone else has an awesome day. Happy Sunday!

    I find I can't sew when I'm tired or not in the mood - All I do is make mistakes

    thats the best thing to just walk away and it doesn't take long you can go back.

    I just read a blog post where the author had designed a quilt for the moda bake shop and while assembling the quilt, she put some blocks on wrong. So she took them off and put them back on. Wrong. But she didn't notice the 2nd time so her quilt was shown on the bake shop with the blocks on wrong.

    Some days it seems like the only thing to do is go to bed, get up, then start all over again. Take a break, drink your favorite beverage, have a snack then try again.

    Sometimes it's just best to walk away for a while.

    I kind of had that day myself. A tube pillowcase that went together wrong -twice! I guess I wasn't paying enough attention to what I was doing. So after the second ripping out session I put it down for a bit. Thank goodness it's done now!

    The day has gotten better. My headache is gone and after a trip to see my DH parents, I think I will be ready to work on the quilt again tomorrow. : )

    I have days like that too. It's best to walk away and come back fresh on another day. I have learned that if I'm not really in the sewing mood, to not even go to the sewing room. Spend too much ripping out if I do. Hope tomorrow is a better sewing day for you!

    Thank You. I think it will be. Gotta watch the afternoon weather though. Could get pretty rough across the south tomorrow. :(

    Would you believe I did almost the same thing Saturday.Sewed a strip of blocks together & patting myself on the back, cause all fit together.
    After most of the day,a closer look showed one center is wonky.Sigh........gonna have to remove the section, made up of 3 smaller blocks,then take the block apart & re do.Sigh..... :-( :thumbdown:

    That is sound advice. I can only quilt an hour every night so I haven't experienced the frustrations of it yet but I know my day is coming.
