What's wrong with this picture?

I think the flub up fairy has come to live with me...uninvited might I add. Remember the goofs I showed last post? Well I've almost outdone myself with this one. Almost. But that's for another post :) Sarah has been bugging me to quilt her table topper so Tuesday, after the kid's left with their dad for an overnight ski trip, I finally got some time and got busy. Last night I just had some stippling left on the corners so I quickly finished it up so it would be done when she got back. Looks o.k. from this side...Apparently I went a little too quick grrrrr. I'm tempted to just fold a square in half for a label and stick it there, we'll see.
I did manage to finish quilting a couple of other table toppers this week without totally screwing them up :) I started to cut another top and then took a look at my flimsy pile and decided I really needed to finish at least a couple table toppers before I started anymore piecing projects. I'm taking a machine quilting class at the end of April so I'm putting off some of my bigger projects till then.
I did do a few piecing projects mainly to use up swell scraps.I made a deal with myself that I had to do something with some of my Sanctuary fabric before I can buy any Simplicity, and I really want Simplicity :)This is the March Clothesline Club project that I'm doing through the fatquartershop.
And this is the March Stars around the Garden bom's from the Country Loft.
Oh and before I forget I got tagged by Amanda over at Busy little quilter for the 7 random things that I did here, so I hope it's not cheating just to link to last month's but I know I can't come up with 7 more things so soon :) Thanks for tagging me Amanda :) I think most everyone has been tagged, except maybe Wendy who has a new blog that is absolutely adorable so Wendy I'm tagging you and the rest of you go check out her blog! If anyone else hasn't been tagged consider yourself tagged and let me know so I can come read it :) Have a great weekend! I hope everyone gets lots of time to sew!

Girl, I'm so jealous how productive you are! Dang, I should stop playing with Wren for awhile. As usual, LOVE everything here!

Lynne in Hawaii said...

A label would go a long way to hide the ooooppps! Love the other projects you finished too.

Kris Meares said...

Hey there! Just popped in from Linda's "All Stitched Up" blog and have enjoyed 'meeting' you. While I know it's annoying at the time, it's a little bit reassuring to me to find that even experienced quilters make 'oops's, not just me! Tee! Hee! Hee! Also enjoyed your 7 strange facts - I got tagged by a friend and put my 7 strange factoids up today, you may enjoy an exchange giggle!! Oh, I'm with you about the fan and white noise - even in winter, I have a fan going in the room for the noise and air movement or I feel stuffy!! Will be back for more visits! Bear Hugs!

Carol said...

You have been a very busy girl...love your table toppers...will you show us a whole picture of the one for your daughter...please? Love your Sanctuary quilt...the pin cushion is as cute as can be...your Clothesline Club is wonderful...oh silly me...everything is awesome! You're on a sewing roll...keep sewing. How fun!

Darlene said...

Holy smokes woman you have been super productive. Love the Swell pincushion. It's swell. Teehee
Got a little package almost ready to go your way. teehee!

Linda said...

I think I'll just send you my fabrics and project ideas....lol... shame about the oops, bit I think I'd be putting a label over it, we all need a little opps now and then.

Cyndi Walker said...

Hi there - just found your blog through another blog... Isn't that the way it works?!

Love you stuff - such beautiful quilting on them too. Nice to meet ya!

Wendy said...

I think a label would be prefect over that Ooops. Your machine quilting is great and my how you've accomplished so much.

Beth said...

I've done ooops's like that one before. I feel your pain! I think a label over it would be great! Ok, now I am looking to add another BOM to my pile, I'm loving that one from Country Loft!

Thimbleanna said...

Wow! Such eye candy here today! Just don't turn that booboo over and don't tell anyone it's there LOL!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Yet again its a beautiful world at Ginger Patches. Your work is awesome and your quilting is really great. I love your eye for color. You always choose things I love.

Wendy said...

So, on your quilting...are you doing this with your regular sewing machine? I need your help if that is the case. Your quilting is beautiful. I quilt all my own tops, but am not as skilled as you...I can really only do stippling well. I would be interested in your techniques, etc. Thanks for tagging me!!

Tracy said...

Your quilting is beautiful. The toppers are stunning. I am glad you have been so productive:) I am hoping you are able to use your Sanctuary up soon;)

Crazy for Primitive Quilts & Gardens said...

Such progress! Everything looks so nice. Love your fabric line selections. Don't feel bad about oopses! Nobody notices them but you :o)

Connie W said...

Everything you're making is just so pretty. I love your fabrics. I hate frogging since my recent episode and I probably would do what you suggested.

Perry said...

You have certainly been busy. I think your quilting is great, and I would just put a label across the back where you goofed. No one but you would ever know the difference, lol, except everyone that reads this post. I did not join The FQ shop's BOM that has the 30's fabric in it; after seeing that tablerunner I am sorry I didn't. Looks so springy and you did such a great jog on it.

amy said...

What boo-boo? I don't see a boo-boo. It is a planned space for the label, right? I hate it when that happens. Lovely projects!

Allison said...

I just found your blog through Doe's blog and I must say - it is awesome! Your projects are SO pretty - and I am so happy to hear that it isn't just me that makes some pretty good boo boo's!

Red Geranium Cottage said...

Tammy, you've been busy over there. That's why our sassy sistas dont hear from you so much huh?? LOL!!! We've got to stop e-mailing and start quilting too.
I love it all. I feel your pain in the quilting dept. though. Doesn't that just irk you??? LOL Slap a label on it and call it real.

Vickie E said...

My my you have been super productive. I am loving all the projects...I have been on a tabletopper/small quilt run lately. Basically quick and easy and small so i feel like I am getting something done! I am inspired to get a few more projects done now. Thanks for sharing.

Cheryl said...

Really like all the pretties that you have been working on. I also joined the Clothesline Club but haven't worked on this months project yet. That Swell pincushion is so cute.

Karen said...

I don't think you need a class in machine quilting. Yours is beautiful! All those projects look yummy. You sure get a lot done. Cute pin cushion. I just got my pin cushion patterns yesterday and have all my supplies.

And I think a label is all you need to do on the back of the runner. I have done the same thing as you did. Seems like we would have felt an extra layer when quilting but it doesn't always happen that way.

Rabbit Stitchings said...

Your quilting looks really good to me! Your taking a class is great but I am looking at this thinking, a class obviously not to learn how but to do advanced?

I think the label is a great idea on how to cover that! Its is the perfect place to put a label too.

Your projects all are soooo pretty! I like the Simplicity fabrics too!

Kathy Wagner said...

Oh my goodness- you are accomplishing so much!
Don't you hate that when a back corner flips up and gets quilted in by accident?!?! I've done that myself many times!
Tell that "flub up fairy" to move on - except not to come by my house!

Ribbonwiz said...

Hi Ginger,
Enjoyed looking through your blog, my, you have been a busy girl!
Love all your quilts.
I did quilt my CC on a domestic, and I was sure glad when it was finished, it was so big!
I would take the easy way out and put a label on that corner!
Hugs Julia

Phyl said...

Label that corner, Honey!

Colleen formerly of South Africa said...

Love your stuff. The quilting on the runner is great...I 'd be with you on the label in the corner...I try never to unsew!

Chris@Cats On My Quilts said...

I think the flub up fairy lives in my sewing room lately too. I did the exact same thing quilting a table runner this past weekend that you did in that first quilt you showed. I should of slapped a label there but instead I spent a LONG time with my seam ripper.

Roslyn Atwood said...

Oh yeah, don't go frogging the corner, just put the label there! it will be unique!
Roslyn

julieQ said...

Yes, that is a great fix, just pop a corner label on that corner and be done with it!! Such a lot of lovely quilts to enjoy...thank you for sharing them!

Carole said...
