    I gave up on quilting tonight. I know I can make nice quilts but this one is ticking me off. I have in my brochure 90X108 and normally I can make it to those measurements but it really ticks me off when I sew 2 pieces together and it is not 90 inches. I guess it is time to give it a rest for the day. Sorry, just venting.:(

    i don't understand what the problem is. what are you trying to do when you say "sewing two pieces together" for 90" and why must it be exactly 90x108. Is this the top or back. Need more information.

    So here is the solution. Just send me all your patterns, thread, stash. Give up quilting! I'd be happy to relieve your stress. Hey, I"ll even send you a thank you card.

    As my momma used to say, maybe you're just holding your mouth wrong, LOL!

    Frustrating, isn't it. :? Hope tomorrow will be a much better day.

    I agree w/ "Jan in VA" - but my Dad always said "you're not holding you toungue right!"

    Tomorrow is another day - after a good night sleep - the project will look less daunting (((hugs))).

    I'm with you lovie, I havent been able to quilt for two days because of the two I am working on, one has to be machine quilted on the dr table and I cant pick up the machine to put it on the table and the second, my OBW had to be unsewn all along the bottom nine inches or so because it was puckering and I dont know how to fix it. I am very frustrated at this point...so I have not worked on them until I get my calm back. Have a good night and see your project with new eyes tomorrow. 8-) :roll: ;-)

    Some times it's best to leave it alone for a while and come back later. So frustrating.

    Sounds like the old full moon is causing some stress in quilterland. Everything always looks/works better after chocolate, ice cream or dessert and a good nights rest. I'm sending you a Quilter's {{{{{HUG}}}} now isn't that better.

    Been there, done this!!!

    Tell you what, I'll have a drink for you, and you nap. Then try again in the morning.

    I think we all get to that point from time to time. I hit it the other day making a calendar holder! Following directions that go against what I think should be the next step! So - it lays on my table and I am taking a break.

    Time for dark chocolate, coffee and hanging out with my favorite quilters ----- ALL OF YOU!
