I think I may have overestimated my sewing awesomeness.

I had done some applique on the back of my most recent quilt finish
and when I pulled my perfectly sewn quilt out of the dryer,
let's just say there was a lot of fraying of appliqued fabrics.
I had expected that  the edges would fray slightly, and I was fine with that.
What I hadn't anticipated 
was the appliqued bits fraying so much, that they would completely pull away from the quilt.

I've since learned of the importance of  permanent stabilization... sigh.

Rather than cutting out an Alabama Chanin shirt today,
I've been performing surgery,
and choosing to embrace the fray.
