    Workout and Unchained Liberty

    I don't think I lost any weight but I did have a workout today....with a seam ripper! I completely pieced and finished the top. When I hung it to take the photo, before going to the long arm quilter, I saw I had pieced the whole right side upside down (1st photo) between the borders! Hence my workout with the ripper. I had four 9P on the outside edge and 3 by the inner border, so...o..o..o I ripped out the whole long length and flipped it (2nd photo), then re-sewed it between the borders. Took me an additional hour or so. Just when I thought things were going so good, too. I need a name for the quilt (unchained Liberty? since the chains don't exactly link up?) and I do hope this is the last panel like this, that I need to do for awhile. My 3rd with the same panel.....I like the second one I did best, but I do like this one.Name:  IMG_0306 qb web.jpg

    Had you not mentioned it, and just posted a pic, I never would have seen that. Even with your explanation, I still had to look twice. Looks great, and I think the name fits perfectly.

    Glad you caught the anomaly "sooner" rather than after it had been quilted.

    Sometimes things just pop out on a photo that are missed when looking at the actual object.

    Your top is beautiful! While unfortunate that the border was originally sewn upside down, it was worth the effort to turn it right.

    Wonderful work! You would have been the only person that would have known, but know that you are much happier fixing the error.

    Taking a picture really shows us when we make a mistake. I now take pictures before I sew on a border...still have rework to do sometimes but not quite as intensive. I have a quilt I dearly love and found my mistake about 2 years after it was quilted. I still love it but wish I had seen it before I took it to be quilted!

    Yes, as stated above this is my third top with this same pane, but all differently pieced. I am so glad I saw the mistake before quilting. I didn't even look at it before sewing the outer blue borders. Thank goodness I always take a photo.

    I always agonize about what to do with a panel. It was alright sewn together wrong, no one but you would have noticed. But glad you took the time to correct it. What you have done with this one is beautiful!

    Beautiful quilt top. I probably would have left it. Not that noticeable.

    A lucky thing for you that you discovered it before you quilted it. It is a very patriotic quilt. I salute you!

    This is a awesome quilt . . . so creative and perfect for that panel.

    I searched out your other quilts with this panel . . . all are beautiful. I think after a time away from this quilt and its frustrations you will love it too. Jack the Ripper does his best to discourage us from liking our quilts. The recipients of these quilts will feel honored to hold these quilts and feel the love that went into them.

    Thanks, I probably spent as much time thinking how to make it different, than it actually took to piece.
