  1. Ha! Some good lessons there and the 18X24 plexiglass square one? Oh yeah, been there done it, still haven’t put the tape around it…. I’m wearing the dunce cap yep.

    Yep, been there! Except instead of a marker it was scissors, so that piece had to come out. Dulled my enthusiasm, too. As for mixing up blocks and rows, I actually think that step should be in most instructions — be sure to mix everything up like a real quilter!

  3. Hi Roseanne. Switching block pieces and layouts are such familiar mistakes, I admit to doing them regularly! The only thing I don’t do is the wet erase marker and I’m sure that’s just because I don’t own one! 🥴 Carol

  4. Linda says:

    Lol I had to laugh reading your blunders! I’ve been there, even with marking fabric with a marker.

  5. I’ve had that happen (like your first example) when sewing up the rows of a quilt – how on earth do they get mixed up like that? I’m glad you’re happy with the way that one turned out after all, Roseanne!

    My mistake was to use my regular foot instead of my walking foot on Kidney Bean which I just started quilting! I am not ripping it all out to start again. I am just quilting the snot out of it now! LOL

  7. Great blunders~have done all but one of those. I have yet to do the acrylic board error – but I assume I will someday.

    Thank you for sharing your mistakes, we all make mistakes.

  9. Danette says:

    You are correct, I think the mistakes along the way, help us to learn more for the future.

  10. Shirley Clark says:

    I’m glad to know I’m not the only one! I just don’t take pictures of my mistakes. LOL

  11. Boy, all this sounds familiar. If only we’d learn to listen to those little voices giving us a nudge to not do this or that!
