You may not be able to see this quilting mistake – which is kind of the point of this post. I was sewing along and crossed right over into another heart with my stitching. From the front, you’d never know it was there if I didn’t point it out to you (go ahead and click on the photo to enlarge) and in the 2nd photo you can see what it looks like on the back.
A couple quilts earlier I got distracted and quilted over the same line in a pantograph – just a short section and you could see it if you knew to look for it but I still didn’t pull the stitches out.
I NEVER take out something like this and am curious how many of you always pick out your quilting mistakes?
How bad does a mistake have to be for you to pick out the stitches?
Keep in mind – I don’t quilt for hire but I do quilt for other people.
By the way, for those times when the stitches just HAVE to come out, Suzanne wrote a great article on frogging (rip it, rip it!) for MQ Resources. I don’t know if you have to be a member to read the article but trust me – that site has a LOT of great information – you want to be a member.
