First of all, thank you to all who responded to my question about LA'ing batting along with polar fleece. I ended up taking the suggestion to use a thin white muslin in the middle. This prevented the blue dotted fleece on the back from showing through the pale yellow gingham strip on the front.
As I was nearly finished FM stippling on the quilt, it started to skip a stitch here and there. It's nothing so horrible that it can't be fixed, but I'm not sure the best way to do it. My plan as it was happening was to just hand stitch from the back to catch the top thread where the holes are. Unfortunately, that wasn't quite as easy or, more importantly, as neat and tidy as I'd hoped.
I'm sure there are youtube videos or tutorials or something out there that can show me how to do this, but because I'm so tech challenged I can never find anything without a link (even cute baby or kitten videos), but I do know how to post here so I'm coming to you once again asking for help.
If someone can explain to me or provide a link to an explanation about how to hand stitch to pick up missed stitches I would really appreciate it. I just hope my question even makes sense because I definitely have no idea how to post a picture!
Thank you again in advance. It really means so much to me that I can reach out to all of you for help.
