I’m pretty sure we’ve all been there. You go to sew the next two patches and one has mysteriously gone missing! You let out a scream and start the hunt. What makes my hunt a little harder is that many pieces for my landscape quilts are somewhere around one-eighth to one inch in size. I do have a system that limits the loss of these pieces but sometimes one must sneeze or cough and even with a hand in place—that piece will fly!
Now in the throes of extreme quilting, one doesn’t always clean up as much as one should. Hence, when a piece grows wings and flies off to a safer distance, it can be hell trying to find it. This leads me on to my tips of the day…
Always check the inside of your shoe
Stick a note on the machine to cough in the other direction
What’s the weirdest place you’ve ever found a missing piece?
Happy quilting and hunting!
