    What would your do-over be?

    If you could re-do one thing in a project, what would it be and why?

    I think I would take a class on binding.....it would have helped to have taken the online course by Jenny BEFORE I made my first quilt I learned a valuable lesson.

    I am in the process of removing the binding and replacing them...

    My husband lets me buy all the fabric I can hide :icon_wave:

      My hair...LOL oh you mean quilting. Taking the time to redo some of my seam matching rather than settling for "Ah that will do" and then not be happy with the finished project. Oh and really thinking about my color chioces. I buy peach and I really don't like peach That sort of thing!

        I'd start quilting years before now!

            Ditto Nancy and SuzyQ.......I'd have been quilting for years instead of months. My other 'do over' would be to go toe to toe with another web retailer. MSQC was out of a particular fabric line and I ordered it from another retailer. It was Moda but there was a flaw ..... a very thin spot in the fabric. The retailer wouldn't exchange it so I convinced myself it would be okay because after all it was just a backing. NOT alright. After it was long arm quilted, I found two other flaws in the fabric and one of those was an actual 1 inch tear. I repaired it but ...... I always know it's there.

              Oh Mia. Your faulting fabric story is so sad. I'd be so disappointed after all that work.

                Like Nancy, I'd have started sooner. And I'd have learned how to do sashing before I actually tried it. My way isn't working!

                  I was so upset Nancy ......... with them, but most of all with myself. I was so eager to see the finished product when I should have put that on hold and forced them to replace the faulty fabric. Lesson learned, honey. I won't do that again
