Color Me Aggravated

I so enjoy sharing with others the crazy crap my children pull, usually at school...and then I go and do something stupid all on my own.  Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?  Sigh.

So, I was basking in the glow after cutting out ten quilt backs over Spring Break and finally managed to get one on the machine Saturday...yay me!

Just a portion of the 7 million HST I made from Thangles

I was really feeling the quilting mojo here

So, tell me what's wrong with THIS picture...

Yes, the backing is a full inch and a half too short.  Why, you may ask.  If only I had an answer.  I employed the measure twice, cut once philosophy but apparently for those of us in the Gifted and Talented category of quilters, it should be measure thrice cut once and then go get an adult to check your measurements.

So, I'm now in the process of piecing a strip to the backing and then it's back to the machine.  I'm hoping this is the only one of the bunch.  Then again, karma is not kind.

Happy quilting, y'all!


  1. OUCH! BTDT. At least you caught it before the quilting reached there.

    Cute quilt.

  2. Bummer! That's happened to me B4. Not ver fun. But it is looking awesome!
