What led to this first step, Joyful???
Well, I was wandering aimlessly around the internet early Tuesday evening and stumbled upon Cynthia's new post at Quilting is more fun than Housework. As things happen, this led me down a spiraling path into the depths of BlogLand...
Bernie was hosting an event about embracing our imperfections as quilters and I thought I might as well "bare all" and join the 70+ bloggers who were fessing up to blunders they've made in quilting.
There were a wide range of blunders. Kathleen at Kathleen McMusing posted these three:
Don't most of us do ALL of those things ALL THE TIME?!?!
I know that I do!!
Worse that ANY of those, my biggest mistake involves my (then) newly purchased APQS Millennium Longarm Quilting Machine. I posted about it HERE, in a post titled Lemonade, but will hit the highlights for you.
I'm merrily quilting along, almost ready to roll the quilt for one final time, when...
What was that?!?! Oops! I was sewing so fast that I banged into the take up rail. Back and forth around the machine to do the rolling to the last section.
Some of you experience longarmers may have a clue as to where I'm going with all of this by now...
Hmm... That's strange. Roll, roll, roll. Back around to the front to see where I left off.
What's that?! A seam unraveled???
THIS POST the completed quilt and alludes to the plan for how I fixed my mistake. In looking back, I was unable to find the post, but here is a photo of the fix:
I missed hitting the exact mark on the back, but it's my quilt and I'm not really bothered by it:
Until next time...
Quilt it REAL!!!
