Bahaha. Two of these things are not like the other one, not like the other one

Sorry, brought back a funny memory.  The first time I got married, I had my three sisters and one girlfriend in my wedding.  Since my sisters lived elsewhere, I picked a dress out of the Penny’s catalog so they could each order it.  Pretty simple.  So, on the day I was getting married, I am sitting in the waiting room with everyone except my sister Karen.  She walks in and my little sister starts singing “One of these things is not like the other one, not like the other one, not like the other one…”  Well, Karen’s dress was way darker than everyone else’s (totally different dye lot).  She was so upset, mostly because she thought I would be upset.  I just laughed.  Seriously, what are you going to do 15 minutes before hand?  Laugh it off.  And then there was Kellie singing.  It was pretty funny.

So, in my fit of sewing, or what I would call depression sewing or sewing without thinking, whatever you want to call it, over the weekend, I of course performed one of my ever so present mistakes, which I only noticed when looking at the photo. The top left corner and the bottom right corner each have a block the wrong direction.  Classic Lori.  The only thing is I didn’t put it together and quilt it before I found it.  So, I have the opportunity to correct it.  That is a change.

I made this from a stack of scraps from a dog quilt I made from my great nephew.  The pile was taking up valuable real estate, so I just started sewing.  It will make an OK baby quilt.  Haley said she liked this one.  She is my very critical daughter who could not sew a button back on her blouse.  Love her.  I can always count on her for an honest opinion.

Happy Sewing

Happy Quilting

  1. I did find them. My sons and I used to play that when they were so little. =) It’s going to be a great quiltlet, whether you fix those two or not. It just adds character. =)

  2. I often have customers come with a quilt to have it long-armed and want to point out where their mistakes are. I tell them I don’t want to know. Doesn’t make a difference to me. If they point it out then that’s all I’ll see. Congrats on finding the snaffoos beforehand.

  3. As the girlfriend at the wedding, I can say that I was glad it wasn’t me in the different dress, I was having a hard enough time blending in while being giantly pregnant. But the dresses were lovely anyway, as were you! Your work is inspiring me, keep it up!

  4. Every quilter makes boo-boo’s! I just tell people that I am embracing my Amish roots! They flawed their oh so perfect quilts on purpose!

    Thank you for following our blog! We are just starting to work on getting it all together!

  5. Lori, this is a frustrating mistake when you have already begun the quilting! Glad you noticed before you began the stitching it up. I didn’t notice mine until I got there with the walking foot. I just finished it and use that table runner… I usually put something over it when it is on the table.

    OMGosh! Just realized this is the very same block I had made and it is a tricky little thing isn’t it? 😉
