    You are in good company! I have done that and after searching for the missing piece, cutting out another, I found the missing one, sewn onto the back of another :shock:

    Certainly not me (hee hee hee) but a very good friend of mine has lost the center medallion to her hand appliqued Baltimore Album quilt.

Nothing. I am sure I cut enough for 8 blocks but maybe I messed up. I start gathering up the fabrics to cut the parts for another block, and lo and behold, there's my 8th block. Still under the presser foot. :roll:

    I have done that one, and feel so silly, looking for the missing block, and finally finding it, sewn in with another one. Luckily, it wasn't too hard to unsew and do right.

    Oh Yeah I lost/found a block once...It was "attached" to my fleece top, I couldn't see it till I took the top off. Boy, did I tear that room apart too! It was SOOO close, yet SOOO far away :oops:

    nope. you are definitely not the only one. :lol:
    The worst is when you sew two triangles thick on one side of a block and all the other sides the correct single layer and don't find it until it is sewed into a row! J

    I once lost a whole row and had to stitch another row, got the quilt all put together and yup there it was! Of course I didn't like the look of the new row but it was too late to disassemble the quilt. Oh well live & learn. Have I learned my lesson? NO! I still do it once in a while.

    I actually lost a whole quilt worth of blocks!!!. I was making a quilt for a friend's DD's wedding and brought it with me to show her. A couple of days later I went to work on the quilt and the blocks were nowhere to be found. I searched everywhere-for days-nothing. I figured they must have fallen out of the bag somewhere. The wedding was drawing near so I started a new quilt and got it done in time for the big day. Several YEARS later I was sorting through some fabric and there, folded neatly inside a large piece of backing, were the blocks!! I wound up using them for another wedding gift.
