The Scream Heard 'Round the World

Arghhhh!!!! I just ironed interfacing on the stitched side of one of my Tall Square Pieces!!!! What was I thinking!!!! Well, obviously, I wasn't thinking or paying attention. I managed to gently pull  it off and have put it aside for now to calm down. Most is acceptable but there are two rows of long arm cross that are looking pretty "fuzzy". I'm thinking I'll replace them. What would you do? Have you ever made this mistake? I'm going to try not to beat myself up too much----it could have been much worse! Just had to vent to people who might feel my pain! :)



  1. oh I do feel your pain! and yes I have done the exact same thing to a quilted item. If you got it peeled off you are doing ok - I would probably restitch the fuzzy long arm cross rows. I figure that you will be looking at the finished item for a long long time, and it doesn't take that long to put it right. Hope tomorrow is a brighter day!

  2. Oh My! Although not a complete catastrophe. I think I would re-stitch. If you notice it now, you will notice it when it is completed and it will irritate you. Long armed crosses don't take much time to rip and replace. Hope you have a better week!

  3. Hi Stasi,

    Uh oh!

    If it bothers you, restitch it as you will always see the fuzzies.
    Plus you've put too much time in that project to not be happy!

    Do you think you will have it finished to share at Stitcher's Jamboree?
    I'd love to see it!


  4. Thanks for all your comments--I am going to take it out and restitch those areas. I know it would bother me if left as is.

  5. Oh no, so unfortunate!

    I agree also, to take out and re-stitch those long armed.
    Sending you boosting energy and warm hugs!

  6. I did exactly the same thing a few years ago when I was making a band to fit inside a shaker box. It was a gift for a friend and I was up against a tight deadline, but I had to restitch it as it was a mess. I don't think I've ever stitched so fast in my life. I feel your anguish though, it's a silly mistake to make - but oh so easy to do.
