Grrr........

Eight blocks made early this afternoon ......
Eight blocks to be unmade late this afternoon!

I have sewn, pressed and trimmed all eight blocks before realising that I have sewn the two centre pieces in upside down in every block.  That means the whole block hast to be unsewn every time. How could I not notice such a glaring mistake earlier? 

I hate it when that happens.

  2. Been there, done that but I have to admit it took me several days to get to the un-sewing part. I was being dramatic and was not going to fix the blocks - ever!

  9. Oh what a ruddy nuisance. I don't suppose there is any way you can leave the piecing as it is and use the blocks to create something different?

  12. Someone else posted they made a whole flock of flying geese only to discover they sewed them incorrectly and had to order more fabric to remake them because the color scheme was off. Spring Fever had hit.

  19. LMSAO!!! That's something I would do!!! I've been learning paper piecing lately...may I share with you how much fun it is to rip that out, with it's tiny stitches and backstitching? I so feel/share you pain! Doesn't seem fair that it is so fast to sew them up and sooooooo long to remove those stitches!!! Has someone been praying for patience for you???
