Block #11 and a big DUH…..

Only one more block to go.  This one is sort of OK.  My color choices were a bit ugly, but it is a barn, so I guess it is OK.  Only that pesky owl is left.  I am doing quilt as you go, so I have no idea what it will look like.

WaterMark_2018-10-20-18-30-51What is this photo?  Well, this would be a group of 4 inch square blocks that was somewhere on my table and I managed to quilt it into the quilt I was working on.  Lesson learned – TOTALLY CLEAN OFF YOUR TABLE WHEN YOU QUILT SOMETHING.  Duh.  SO I picked out some stitching after mumbling under my breath quite a bit.  This was the second oops while quilting this quilt.  The first one was when I tried to use a silky thread on the top and in the bottom and crazy stuff started happening.  Loops and well…just plain crazy stuff.  Once I went to a cotton on the top, all craziness ceased.

Happy Sewing

Happy Quilting

Love the ones you are with

  1. Well, there is nothing like working on an applique block and wondering why the block will not lay flat in my lap! OH I sewed a corner of the background to the piece of applique I am working on! I have done this so I definitely understand how you feel! Your Barn is cute!
    Have a good evening.

  2. Hi Lori! At least you cut your loses on the slippery thread and got back to your senses right away. I sewed one of those slippery slider things to my quilt once. That was the end of that helpful thing. Obviously I didn’t need any help sliding things under the needle. I think the fabric you selected for your barn are perfect – at least where I live, barns are that color. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Been there and so have done that!!!! Also, have been machine quilting and had a significant piece of the backing flip under and get stitched (heavily) into the very wrong place!!!! (one of the disadvantages of stitching on a sit-down machine!!!) You would think I would learn after a few times…hmmmmm????? LOL!!!

  4. I really like your barn as is – the colors are very pretty! I have done just the same thing and I agree it’s super frustrating! I also should clean up my space before stitching (or pinning things together), but I really like sewing – cleaning up? Not so much!
