    I hate myself after doing a mystery and half way thru I find I don't have enough scraps of needed shade to finish the quilt top. I whined all the way to WalMarts. Rosetta :oops:

    Remember there is no such thing as stupid mistakes -- just happy and creative ways to design another quilt.

    Just think: If we were perfect, then the words "mistake" and "accident" would have no use and we shouldn't be wasteful. lol

    Yes, you are just up the road!!! I have a very good friend and former room mate in Conroe, I do visit her ever so often. I do shop at the Woodlands sometimes and there is a quilt shop that I can never remember the name of. This is almost like "hello neighbor."

    You said you cut the fabric wrong. Do you mean that you cut it in the wrong direction? Like with or against the grain? Which ever, I don't know why you can't use it either way. Don't we all make big mistakes? My mother, (bless her) was a quilter, and so would always tell me that the only one that walked this earth, that could make a prefect quilt, was Jesus himself. Makes me feel good when I mess up!! And I do it plenty. Good luck!!!!

    I don't have a stupid stick and I've done some pretty stupid things, but I was beat with an ugly stick when I was younger.

    I agree with Patrice. Something 'wrong' can be a happy accident. That happened to me with my first quilt!

    :oops: I am officially getting in line for a healthy dose of ass-wuppin with the stupid stick today. I actually made one of those (beat head against wall) novice mistakes AND I KNEW BETTER. grrrr

    Ripped strips of fabric for alternating between the scrap strips and instead of measuring all the components and cutting to size - like a fool, I sewed on the strips ladida. NOW the sections don't fit together and I have to rip all those 72 1/2" strips and start over.

    Before, I would have kicked myself - now I'm waiting for the beatin. :twisted:

    Sorry for your error. Don't you ask yourself, why do I love quilting? Yet, we get over it and go right back to doing what we LIKE. No matter how many quilts one makes, and your think you know what you're doing, mistakes still happen. That is just why we care considered human, right?? :oops: :cry:

    Hi Mamabird3.........Sounds just like something I would do and have plenty of times. Sometimes, we just have our minds on so many things, it makes us do crazy things. I laugh at myself sometimes at the crazy things I do, I would tell you some of them, but I don't think there is enough room for me to list them on this space. :D IT IS SO MANY!!!! :D ... but anyway, I see you have already came up with a good idea for the mistake. Thank goodness for mistakes sometimes! You just made alot of us feel really at home. We've been there done that! Have a blessed day, or night. :!:

    :thumbup: I don't think you're stupid - what a great excuse to hit the stores once again. It also stands to reason, that as long as you are there you might as well pick up a few more small (?) items. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
