getting more and more experienced as a seamstress i don´t get as desperate as some years ago anymore but "just" think hard how to mend the stuff i did wrong. if i am lucky and did not cut anything wrong it usually means undoing, ripping and sewing again. and sometimes again (and again :-)
but tell you what: although i have some imperfection going on here i still like my work and the result. i think you learn that when you do a lot of stuff yourself.
so here´s a classical mistake: wrong directions of fabric pieces.
the panel on the left bottom side has vertical red stripes, while the other two visible gingham parts are horizontal.
after i actually saw the problem (took me some time) i undid the seams and sewed it together again, this time right.
here are two examples of missing amounts of fabric (don´t ask me how that could happen in the first place).
first there is about 1 cm missing on top of the upper pale green stripe.
again i opened a seam and put a piece of the dark-pink fabric there which i had lying around here since the big cutting-event.
this probably will be hardly visible when the binding is sewn on.
and this was an early mistake: i measured wrong while cutting one block. so here at the vertical block there was a bit at the bottom missing (right above the pink-red ornament stripe). i took leftovers of the exact same block and sewed it on - i hope this won´t be too visible with the coming up quilting.
(if you click on the picture you can see it very well by the way..)
imperfect, but i still love it. maybe even more just because of these little special corners on my quilt. i can go looking for them later on when it is in use and then know even more that i did this work.
