Houston we have a problem

Do you see that??? That is a HOLE in my FABRIC! Right smack dab in the middle of a strip I cut for a border! I found it as I was ironing, so I went ahead and ironed the crease, but the hole just happens to be right at the center fold line….hmmm, me thinks I did NOT make this hole and it came off the bolt that way…..RRR!!!
Anyways, yeah, this lovely Kona eggplant will soon be attached to a lovely little baby quilt that spewed out of my machine last week. I have a boutique this weekend, so I am sort of trying to get it done in time to have it there, but I’m not pushing too hard. If it happens, it happens.
Pictures of the actual quilt instead of disappointing HOLES soon!

**EDIT** Just to alleviate any anxiety about purchasing fabric with holes at the crease, I must post a retraction. This was fabric that Kirsten snagged from my stash. And this is what happens to perfectly beautiful fabric when you have a messy cutting area and don't take the time to make sure the cutting zone is clear before you start cutting. I didn't even know I cut it and I can't absolutely guarantee that I did cut it as the cut bit was never seen, however, given the state of my cutting table when I was cutting, I take responsibility for that hole. I thought I would just catch it the next time I was cutting on that fabric, but when Kirsten swiped it last night, I had forgotten all about the mishap.

Yikes! Can you applique a little something over that, perhaps, if you don't want to put a seam there?
