This is what happens when you AUI--Applique Under the Influence! No, I wasn't drinking. I had a bit of surgery on Monday and was taking narcotic pain relievers. I stopped after yesterday morning when I spent most of the day "high" and most of the evening "hung over." I guess I should not have tried stitching. I do cut my background squares oversize, but still, I measured and the snip goes slightly into the block. So, do I fix it or start all over? The perfectionist in me thinks about starting over, but the practical me is demanding to fix it. Should I applique a bit of white over the top? Or cut off the whole edge of the block and sew on a strip? Which would be less noticeable? Does anyone else have a suggestion? Help!
