    Re: Giveaway Week 30 Aug 8th -14th

    My biggest mistake when quilting? Thinking my way is better than the instructions.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

        not changing the needle enough. I'm too impatient to get those 30 minutes of sewing in whenever I can.

            I have learned to measure twice, cut once. Read directions twice too!

              Not reading the pattern all the way through before I start cutting!

                I have made every mistake listed........the most common I think is not having a accurate 1/4 inch seam

                  I think the most common mistake is estimating the amount of fabric needed to complete a project.

                      Biggest mistake for me is being in a hurry and rushing into things without reading the direction through. Spent a lot of time with my seam ripper because of that mistake.

                        Thinking I can get away with not ironing every single time. Haha

                          I think one of the biggest mistakes is not pressing seams.

                            I think the biggest mistake is getting in a rush to finish a project and not enjoying the work to get there.

                              The most common mistake I believe most people make is not to change out their needle often enough. I know this is true with me. I so forget until I hear my bobbin making a funny noise.
                              Congrats to Nana2 on her win.

                                Congrats Nana2mandj!! That's a lot of points!

                                For me, the most common thing that happens is that I run out of bobbin thread without noticing, especially when I'm chain piecing things together and I can't see my bobbin! The other thing I can think of is that when sewing blocks together, or piecing them, I end up putting pieces on the wrong sides or opposite what they should be for some, but not all, my blocks and then I have to rip them out and put them back together again! So frustrating!!
