Tanya over the weekend asked me to sew together a rag quilt for her as her machine just hates the thickness of the quilts. I had all the rows sewn and was about to sew the rows together when I realized that I made a mistake.
As you can see in the pictures above the quilt looks cute and all but the back that is solid purple has the rag part of the rag quilt. Talk about having a bad day. I used a locking stitch, so a seam ripper really wasn't an option with flannel.
To make things worse earlier in the day I was finishing the quilting on my diagonal top.
It was looking just fantastic. I was quilting rows side by side and it was taking me a lot of time with as much stitching as there was.
As you can see it was looking fantastic then I ran into a little snag. No really, I snagged my finger on one of the pins in the quilt.
Yes those little red dots are me bleeding all over my wonderful quilt. I wanted to cry. Tanya tells me she will try to fix it, but instead of a nice quilt to sell I might have a quilt for myself. Have any of you bleed on one of your quilts before? I was bleeding for a little while, before I noticed it which is why its all over the place.
Speaking of wanting to cry my old friend Fire in the Sky that I have had listed on Etsy sold. I was so sad to see that I sold it. I know when you sell something you are suppose to be happy. This quilt was in 22 treasuries and had 99 admire and that does not count me. So today I cry as Tanya puts it into a box and ships it away.
