You are far from alone. We all make mistakes or have learning lessons I should say.

Just yesterday I was quilting away with my ipod on (daddy was playing with the kids, so I used my earphones) and didn't hear the change, but it felt different. What was the problem? The corner of my quilt folded back...and I quilted it to the back of my quilt with tight free motion loop-to-loops. What a pain to rip out! It's ok, you can laugh, I did. :)

What's going wrong with your quilt? Maybe we can help...

I bought a quilt top by accident at an auction. I was bidding on something else so I thought.haha. Well I swallowed my pride and {in my head} said that the peson who started would be proud that I am hand quilting this to finish it. Now I notice it is falling apart from poor material and the 1/8 seams used to put the top together.It has no binding and 1/8 to the edges of the blocks. But I am to stubborn to say I quit so I am hand stich in a ditch block #6 of 24

Mistakes, all my quilt blocks match up evenly and everything comes out great. The only thing wrong is the person doing the quilting.
