Yesterday I showed you this:
If you didn’t catch the error, I sewed the top two pieced rows on the wrong way. It should repeat the pattern of the four pieced rows at the bottom. Since I’d already sewn the top border on, as well, I had to unstitch two long seams. Not a tragedy, just an inconvenience.
I fixed it. (The color shows slightly better for me in the one below. Think of oatmeal for the background fabric and carpet.)
But I thought you might be interested in some photos Barbara Brackman shared. If you don’t know Barbara, she is one of the premier quilting historians. I can’t capture any of her photos, but please hit the link and take a look at some “quilt wrecks.” And here is another post by her with more. At the bottom of the second post are several more links with fascinating pictures.
And for more fun, a link shared by reader Jean, with the Drunkard’s Wife quilt-along!
I guess it’s reassuring that we are just part of a long history of quilting errors! What’s the best quilting error you’ve made? I’d love to hear your stories.
