It seems as if I've gone from summertime plodding on my quilt projects, which manifests in s-l-o-w forward motion, to going backwards! I sure hope my quilting skills haven't peaked and are now going the other direction. I made such a blunder on this project. This is one panel for a bag I'm making as part of a Craftsy class taught by Tara Rebman, Quilt-as-You-Go Patchwork Bags. She's an excellent instructor, and I enjoyed making the pieced panel. I pulled two storage bags of scraps from my collection, and have pretty much limited myself to using only those in the patchwork. It's good to use up bits and pieces, and fun to see how they blend together. I did purchase the larger bag bottom piece which is a medium-weight denim. However, I made a blunder in tracing the bag half-pattern. Of course I saw it after completing the piecing and quilting. It was a "smack your forehead" moment for sure. Want to know what I did, or can you spot it?
