Crazy Patch Snafu!

My Flannel crazy patch quilt has been my sew-between this month. I know that putting it on my UFO challenge meant that I should actually make it a primary project and not a secondary one, but my other commitments come first.

So there I had all my cut pieces laying nicely next to my Pfaff, ready to pick up and sew between my the pieces in my other quilt. But I get moving and grooving on my machine and my hands start grabbing fabric before my brain starts thinking and soon the pedal is to the metal, or in my case, the wood floor and I think to myself, it's not midnight yet. Let's burn through that crazy pile and finish up some more of good old #6.

Next morning I come down to see my progress only to discover I had grabbed the wrong pieces and sewn them together. 28 flannel pieces all sewn wrong!

So much for "blowing through the pile". I'm not looking forward to un-stitching that pile. Two steps forward, one step back.

That's a bummer! I've done stuff like that before and it's very frustrating.

Oops! I just hate picking out!

Put on some music and dance away with that ripper. :)

Oh no! I hate it when that happens.
