  2. So get your trusty seam ripper out, back up a bit. Chop some off and rejoin! No whining - remember! Sunday sewing day for me here in Oz. Still work on Roll Roll Cotton Boll....

  5. I hate when that happens! I rip back and make a new seam---and hope that's the only corner it happens on.

  6. That always happens. It too will pass.

  7. You know what I do? Just ignore it and make the miter happen anyway. Of course no one is going to be photographing my quilts and putting them in a book now are they? Hopefully it didn't take too much time to repair.
    Happy Sewing :0)

  8. That happens to me more than I think it should! But I never remember to take time to check it out beforehand. Love the cheddar!!

  11. I have absolutely had that happen.

  12. I have had that happen before and I don't like reverse sewing! So, to keep it to a minimum, I have started loosely pinning my binding around the quilt so I can space those seams out away from the corners. That doesn't take as long as redoing it would.

  14. I have found the seam in the corner works it much better if the binding is cut on bias and not pressed in half.

  15. I hate when that happens, but sounds like many of us have been there and done that!

  16. Happened on my last binding. My Bernina managed to stitch through all of it and it felt funny, but didn't look bad or bubbly, but I really should have taken Rainy's advice and my guess is you will.

  17. I JUST DID THAT! Seriously! Not 1 hour ago - but I didn't "fix" it - I decided to go with the flow..... I'll probably regret that soon..........

  18. Oh my gosh! I HATE it when that happens. I usually make myself approximate the binding before I sew it on, but sometimes I forget and that's usually when that happens, lol. I FEEL your pain!

  19. Funny, I thought that only happened to me. And I thought it was karma for my unique vocabulary when I become frustrated. I try not to say my only allowed two bad words, shoot and darn (but not really).

    I plan and try to make sure but the last two times I was working on binding, the seam was either on a corner, or at the end. Blast! And to make matter worse I was running out of binding.
    When you look back on it days later its not as dire as it felt at the time. Smile, we chose this craft, and we are good at it.

  20. Happens to me 8 out of 10 times!

    ReplyDelete
  21. That happened to me not once, not twice, but THREE times the last quilt I worked on. . . http://katiesquiltsandcrafts.blogspot.com/2012/02/t-shirt-quilt-for-police-officer.html I think it's because this quilt was a bit smaller than I usually work on. . and the bias binding I make with a yard of fabric typically NEVER gives me any problems when I work on an adequately sized quilt! Oh well. . it happens . . but I agree. . @#$Q%@$#%

  22. is that a problem? I guess I have been lucky so far to not have that happen! lol I have come close though :P

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, I hate when that happens.

  24. Always happens to me 9 out of 10 times! I feel your pain!

  26. No matter how many times you spot check for this....There it is again! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRHHHHHHHHHH!

  28. I thought it was just me! No matter how many times I check, there is always ONE corner with a seam!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ick! So, do you take it all out, let the seam stay or but the bit out and restitch the seam back a bit and move on?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sorry, that was supposed to be "cut"!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I feel your pain! ((huggs))

  32. Bonnie, has happened to me many times - I just go back enough to avoid corner and re-seam binding. Gives me a more few scraps and I avoid more corner bulk. Have had square quilts where seam met all corners.

    ReplyDelete
  33. That happened to me twice on the quilt I was binding the other day. This was the first time I have ever had that happen but it didn't turn out too bad.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Well, you could avoid it all by buying 100 yards of the binding fabric and cutting the length for bias, then it would guarantee not to happen and just think about how many little hexagons you'd get from the leftovers!

    ReplyDelete
  35. That happened to me today. Bugger!!!
