I’m completing the finishing touches on this new, fun class- which is all about the things that can go wrong while you are quilting. It is a topic near and dear to my heart because, let’s face it, we all make mistakes. So far, my list of quilting oops has grown to over 155 different things that can go wrong for a machine quilter.
I will be teaching this new class in early October in Adelaide, Australia at the AU Machine Quilting Festival. If you plan to attend this show, I do hope you will sign up and join me. :-) We will be identifying all the things that can go wrong, and teaching ways to avoid the issue and fix it, if it is fixable. Thankfully, most things can indeed be repaired in machine quilting.
This photo on the left shows a guild opportunity quilt I quilted. Unfortunately, the oops in this case was a strong volunteer, who while hanging the quilt on a metal frame while selling tickets, caught the quilt on a screw and ripped through all layers. The beaded/fiber art dragonfly artfully covers the front tear, while the hanging sleeve hides the repair patch on the back. I made 3 dragonflies for this quilt and turned a disaster around with extra embellishments.
What is your favorite Oops repair? Happy Quilting, Carla
