I sewed a pin in my quilt.

That's right.  I finished  my RRCB today.  I was sitting on the couch with it covered up, warm,  cozy and oh so proud when something kept sticking me.  I mean really poking me.  It was one of those really sharp silk pins.  For some reason I pinned a seam along the seam line rather than perpendicular to it.  And I must have ironed right over the little bugger.  I can't believe that with all the quilting and everything in there I never hit it or noticed.  But well, there it was, sewn inside of the quilt.  It was washed dried and ready to go on the guest bed.  I'm glad I found it before a guest did!! I did finally get it out of the quilt, but it took some doing.  I managed to get it out between the stitches with some careful maneuvering and the help of the point on a seam ripper.  That was  a first for me, because I usually don't pin.  Those darn HSTs....they made me pin!! 


  1. I got a good chuckle. Believe me, you are not the first to do this. I hope you post a new photo of the completed quilt - I would love to see this gorgeous quilt in the 'done' state. Send a photo to Bonnie so she can put it in the Gallery.

  2. this is why you sleep under the quilt before you gift it or put it on a bed. one, to be sure the user has sweet dreams, and to make sure all the pins are out. Old quiters wives tale but it works! (mauh) Liz


I would love to hear from you, comments and questions welcome!
