  1. I usually don’t notice mistakes like that until I’ve taken a photo, downloaded the photo, and started to put it into a blogpost, lol! I am actually using my seam ripper on purpose right now to take apart a UFO and remake it into something different!

    I think you designed a new block!

  3. Hmmm…. common mistake that one. I have a charity quilt here that I didn’t piece that has that exact problem. And because it is just one block, I just haven’t been able to settle on a quilting plan. sigh. I think you could probably rent Sue out as a professional ripper, although also I think you might be more careful sewing if you had to fix your own mistakes!! lol. xx

    Ah friend…I use my seam ripper so much that I wrote a Senryu for it (my very literate niece informed me that a Haiku is only about nature, while a Senryu is the same pattern but about anything else.

    Senryu for My Seam Ripper
    Loathe, love, necessary bane.
    Irresolute emotions.
    Please never get dull.

    Yep…that’s my ode to my seam ripper, Rosie, the Unriveter

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Oh yeah! That’s me too many times. At least you caught it before the quilt top was done.

  6. Hello Roseanne, You have definitely made everyone laugh, including me, and feel so much more in tune with our seam rippers with your post today! One of my “favorite” activities to do with my seam ripper is the dang, rip it out….sew the seam together, press and sew it into the block and wait….what the ?????? (lots of not so nice words) and the whole process gets to be repeated! Isn’t this so fun!! I do hope the remainder of the quilt goes together without anymore problems! It is going to be a fantastic quilt, just keep that in mind and the fact that you have all of us cheering you on and waiting to see the finished quilt! Loads of smiles and hugs being sent your way!!!

  7. I have that special skill also…I have many many rippers in my house (and car) to keep handy for all my mishaps.

  8. Well, I have Never, Ever, Never made the mistake of putting star points the wrong way! (WHAT A BIG LIE IS THAT?!!!) 🙂
    One quilt, in the olden days when I hand quilted from the edge to the middle … I got to the center of the quilt and saw that a whole block was turned the wrong way as were pieces in the middle of the block itself … sew … it took very careful “unstitching” … I fixed the block at the machine and then carefully hand stitched it in place on the quilt, then I finished the quilt …

    I’m glad I’m not the only one! 🙂

    Hi Roseanne, My ripper is never far from me. We are on a first name basis, but the words coming out of my mouth at the time are not too polite. LOL!

  10. You always make me giggle, Roseanne. I use my seam ripper so much that I decided I was not going to have just any old plastic seam ripper. I bought one with a hand carved wooden handle from a quilt store I was visiting on a road trip going through Twin Falls, Idaho. I love it! And it’s a lot easier to keep track of.

  11. Vicki’s comment has me giggling. Hahaha. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve done the math wrong on fabric yardage, but it’s enough that I always order extra just in case! The other day, when I had the Batik Burst top all sewn together, I was sitting and admiring it, and then realized something was off. Out came the ripper (I do my own ripping, by the way – haha). I have another quilt top that is done and has a few mistakes in it, and they are staying. I apparently share the same skill set! Anyhoo, can’t wait to see the quilt!

    I’m there with you! Which is why I need to buy a better seam ripper!

    I almost spewed my coffee-you possess a special skill!!!!!!! I was thinking that because you have Sue rip for you all the time you are not learning to stop making boo boos, ROFLOL But I am so proud of you that you ripped on your own. OK, you know I am just kidding with you!! It happens to all of us a whole lot more than we would like for sure. Next time just throw in an extra yard of fabric:)

    Roseanne, I possess one of those special skill sets too! As my DH says, “my mommy says I’m special!” LOL LOL Jackie the (seam) Ripper has been busy at my house too! LOL I have found a new friend in my Robert Kauffman Quilting Calc app for my phone, as well as my EQ8!!

Please leave a reply - we would love to hear from you!
