    baby quilt ruined after wash

    I am so sick about this finished baby quilt i just finished. I washed it because it had some spots on it from my sewing machine. As I took it out of the washer noticed that the appliqued duck was all frazzle. Now what can

    I just finished this baby quilt of baby animals. I washed it because it had a spot on it. When i took it out of the washer the duck's head was frazzled. I am just sick. Do I have to do a whole new quilt or does anyone have a good suggestion to redo the duck only? The duck is machine embroidered appliqued.
    Thanks for listening to my whining.Lol. Barb T.

    Your quilt is just too cute. I would do something about the duck, not make a whole new quilt. If it is appliqued, it seems as though your friend the ripper would take the original one off, although it would not be terrifically easy. Can you get a new duck? I am so sorry you have had this problem.

    The quilt is so cute. I would only with sharp tiny scissors take out the duck ruined part and applique by hand something else (maybe the name of the baby???). Hand sew the applique like nothing happened.

    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.

    I like the bonnet idea...could also appliqué a flower or part of an egg shell or a bow over the area.
    very cute quilt. So sorry you had to deal with this now. On the positive spin, what you end up doing will be added to your toolbox of tricks. Keep up the great work .
