QofTD 12/08/11 Dumb Things
What dumb thing have you done recently while quilting?
Make me smile :~)
For me - I like the large OLFA rotary cutter. The blades are expensive and hard to change, but the blade was a few months old, and starting to get dull. I thought I would treat myself and clean the cutter & put in a brand new blade to make trimming the quilt to sew on the binding effortless. The very first length of trimming, it wasn't so easy in a spot - so I went over it again! What???? I had quilted a safety pin left in the quilt top where I had marked the center-how I did not break a needle or worse, pure luck. The pin was very difficult to get out, and the blade is visibly nicked in 2 places. I proceeded to trim the quilt with the nicked new blade. Dumb-Dumb-Dumb!
Am I the only dummy here?
