Clanger Confession – Quilting Blunders

Percy’s eye poking out through the hole in my quilt!

So, Bernie at Needle and Foot is asking for our blunders. I looked up synonyms just for the heck of it and here are Merriam Websters: bobbleboo-booboob [British], brickclanger [British], clinkererrorfaultflub,flufffumblegaffgaffegoofinaccuracylapsemiscuemisstepmistake,oversightscrewupslipslipupstumbletrip. I liked the idea of a clanger confession so here are some of my great ones!

  • Quilting a piece of fabric to the back of the quilt
  • Chain stitching without thread
  • Blocks in the wrong place see this post

KEEP CALM
Read Instructions
Execute Task
Repeat

But the biggest clanger is such a rookie error – NOT READING/FOLLOWING the pattern. I do it all the time, assume I know how something goes together, and just go do it….

This weeks tasks:

  • I will be finishing grey goose – binding needs to be applied!
  • I will be working on getting things prepped to sew like a fiend on the spring fling sewing retreat.
  • More design work

Have a great week and cheers to a productive April!
