    I was working in a hurry this morning and did not realize that I had a paper towel stuck to the bottom of my quilt, :cry: so now I have to pick it off. Fortunately, I was sewing a straight seam. Some of the others are fancy embroidery seams, and I might never had gotten the towel out!

    Ok, I'm laughing. Not at you, with you.
    I was embroidering a quilt one day, didn't notice a couple pieces of fabric had stuck themselves to the back. Went on with my sewing, only to find out I had to pull the ENTIRE quilting out because I just couldn't cut around these scraps and take them out without ruining the stitching.

    I have been laughing at myself ever since I sewed it this am. My husband had to laugh, too, altho he is very supportive of my habit. I'm just glad it was only a towel, and that the project is a lap robe instead of a major project.

    I have sewed a quilt top to itself before. a corner got flipped underneath somehow, and you are right all you can do is laugh about it.

    Hey look on the bright side it was a PAPER towel and that means a soak and it would come out easy hopefully no reverse stiching.... :oops: One of these days I'lll take a photo of all those oops..I've done....after they are quilted and you notice something don't look right....oh yeah I meant to do that... :roll:

    Gotta laugh, I've done stuff like that sooo many times! The real reason I quit "sewing" is that I sewed the sleeve closed when trying to make my DH some short sleeve shirts out of his long sleeve castoffs! That little booboo of yours is nothing but a good chuckle! Thanks for sharing..I'm still smiling!

    You made me chuckle. I hate it when I do things like that - especially when it is more than once!!!!

    Oh no! Well, at least it was a paper towel and not a piece of fabric.

    Oh, goodness! And you even took a picture to share! Thankfully it was just paper.
    I have sewed or quilted scraps to projects before.

    It just goes to show you that there is NO END to the variety of screw-ups you can have while quilting! And even knowing that, there are still a few that I repeat over and over!

    Oh my! As ButterCreamCakeArtist said thank goodness it was a paper towel. The last time I did that was a fabric scrap (of decent size) to the back of the quilting for a pillow for dd. I just let it stay there! Someday she'll be messing with it and discover MOM'S NOT PERFECT?!?!?! AHHHH! lol
