On being really stupid!

Oh No is right! I did that once...trimmed off the side and attached to the bottom. Lady said it was OK to do. It only took once, knock on wood. Now I measure twice, cut once, etc.:D

Aw, I feel your pain! I'd love to say I've learned my lesson and that I'll never do this again, but I can only say I pray I'll never do it again! It's so depressing.

"Pat, pat, pat"...that's the sound of me patting your back while saying "There, there, it'll get better". I'm sorry.:mad:

When I first got my old machine, the Ultimate XX, I quilted the whole quilt with the backing upside down. The seam was down, so it had to be taken out and reseamed around the quilting then requilted. It was a mission quilt. I didn't even know that the seam was exposed until I turned it in. I was in such a hurry to finish. That is normally how I learn a lesson, I mess up then have to fix it. It is always a bummer.

ouch! That stinks. I am sorry this happened to you. I have always feared this would happen to me. "Knock on wood", It hasn't yet. I am sure my time is coming. Your experiece will help me to remember to check, check, check.

You have my sympathy...no fun ripping stitches. I'm scared to death I will do this one day, and I'm sure I will at some point when not paying attention.

Thanks for the reminder I have taking a couple of years off , Now back at it ! First My kids moved my machine to my new house I brought , First have to adjust everything. I took off the leaders now going to reinstall them and put zippers back on. The first backing I install sagged 8 inches on both sides. Wow Hoping to get this all back working right. Getting excited to start quilting again. Edie

I just did this.   :(   And I was so careful to make sure everything was centered. I was so pleased withmyself at the direction of things matching, the center seam rolling up just perfect.  

 

3/4 way through...yeah..  why is the bump of my leadergrip already showing???????

Is this some kind of rite of passage????

Been there, done that.  At least you caught it before you had done almost the whole quilt.  Sounds like you are ready to make it stunning.  Post pictures when you get finished.
