Has anyone else ever quilter their leaders to their quilt? I was practing and floated my quilt top which was longer than the backing. Didnt notice and kept on quilting... Lesson learned. 

I just purchaced the book hooked on feathers. Anyone have any thoughts on that book?

Haven't done the stitching to the leaders yet, it's still on my to-do-list. I hope I never get to that part. LOL I know that had to be frustrating. Hope you did break a needle. I have run out of backing before so I watch that very closely. If I were to stitch off on the leaders I would be in trouble because I do a lot of pinning when I pin the quilt to the leaders. I kringe just thinking about it.

As for the Hooked on Feathers book, a mess of us quilters here purchased the book a month or so ago. I heard nothing but good things about it. I love it but haven't been able to use the technique on a quilt yet. Hopefully soon.

Also, if we were all to get on a list of "dumb stuff" we have done quilting, there wouldn't be enough room on the site. :-) We all make mistakes. Hopefully we learn from them but then again, some of us, me for instance, enjoyed it so much the first time we do it again.
