Have you ever done this??

I like to test my tension before I start machine quilting and I just sandwich a small piece to sew on until I get it right.  So, my little test piece, unbeknownst to me, got under the piece I was quilting.  Now you would think I would notice that the fabric had gotten much thicker - but nooooooo.

 I mean really, this was not just one layer of fabric, it was two layers of fabric and one of batting - how did I miss that?? 
 Didn't see it until after I finished all the quilting and turned the piect over to "admire" my handiwork.  Handiwork indeed - more like klutzywork.  Had to rip out all the quilting in that section of the quilt.  Have you ever ripped out machine quilting? NOT FUN.

Live and learn - well, live anyway.
