you could end up making a mistake and then deciding to purposely continue thus.
I mindlessly started stitching small pieces together on the 'right' side and felt something was not quite right; after several pieces I sat turning and peering at the pieced-together-strip and realised what was wrong.....I'd been stitching on the right side which was the wrong side and now the right side had a very visible ridge: nice!
I continued experimenting using only white fabric; this time sewing the pieces together on the 'wrong' side, where I asked myself the following question: how does the running stitch differ from the wrap-stitch I learned from Jude of Spirit Cloth for piecing - I had never actually compared the two; the results can be seen in the following images
