Well, not for lack of trying. In fact, I pretty much had it all ready to go. Quilt pieced, basted and quilted (lightly...you'll see!) and then I attached the binding. After attaching it - I folded it over and clipped it down ready for the final step. Can you see my clips below? Yes, paper clips....hey...I use what's available and what works!
In doing so I found my quilt edges to be a bit "bulky" so I did a little trimming. See the pile next to the machine below?
And in doing so clipped a bit too much....
I can't even explain how upset I was when I realized this. Especially since all the other corners were fine. So...I decided that the best course of action was to set it aside and get through the week and return to it another time.
I'm planning to rip it off at that corner only, re-attach new binding and sew it back down. Hopefully it goes as well in real-time as in my mind. What can I say....a lesson that shows my newbie status. But ya know....it's one of those lessons that really teaches you, ya know? I don't think I'll ever clip a corner again....I should have it soon....though this time I won't make the mistake of guessing when. ;-)
