It just does!
So last week I was quilting Roger’s (my hubby’s) quilt, rolled it up to the last pass……and….oh no! There was a tear in the outer pieced border…..#%*>+¥!
How it got there I have no idea. Saving grace was two fold. One it was our quilt, not a customer quilt. Two it was a pieced border.
I thought I would share how I fixed it as my tip this week.
1. Roger gets in the car and runs home for more fabric.
2. I start ripping back the quilting so I can get enough space to get at the offending piece and then I rip,it out.
3. I unrolled the quilt quite a ways so I had room to work on it.
4. I moved my machine in close to the frame and raised the frame (I have hydrolic lifts) so I could push my machine under the frame a bit.
Like I said stuff happens. Rather than curling up in a ball in the corner and crying like I wanted to, I put my big girl panties on and dealt with it. There is a fix for everything, you just need to think it through…..
So as much as I love what I do, like every job on earth, there are moments when it is not so fun……
