I’m still plodding along on the 9-patch quilt.. I’ll tell ya what, that is a bunch of seams to match when sewing the rows together! I made a rookie mistake. I have to tell on myself so I can get from being mad to finding the funny in it. Half way through the quilt I changed my quarter-inch foot. Well I changed it to a see-through quarter-inch foot. No harm no foul right? WRONG!! No I didn’t sew a test seam in between. That was the rookie part!
Come on! Yall are not supposed to be flinching here! You’re supposed to help me to find the funny part!
I noticed as I sewed more rows together. Yep, knew instantly what happened. Got that sick feeling in the pit of my stomach.. that’s what experience does for me. I can recognise a mistake after I make it for the ump-teenth time. Nope, doesn’t stop me from making it again I just don’t have to think much about it when I see the results of the mistake.
It’s an eighth inch difference in the width of the quilt. Not huge but I know it’s there. You’d be able to pick it out too! As I look at it, it is screaming at me! But I’m not going to re-make 120 9-patches un-sew then re-sew so I trudge on.
I’m sure we all make them. I got ahead of myself. When stripping I like the metal foot I know I have to set the needle over to .8 and for pieceing tops I like the clear foot that I set at .5 and if I switch between them it’s usually only at those times. Which would not effect the top.
Well all I can say now is WHOOPS! One thing I am is adaptable.
