    Trying to do a QAYG last seam. The seam was off--not matching so I took it apart. In ripping the seam I cut a tiny hole right where the stitching will go when I put it back together. I cut a small piece of fabric and sprayed it with tacky glue. It didn't stick. Any suggestions how to fix this?

    I agree, but I'd put some fray check on it first, so it won't ravel on you.

    Be creative, if you did not sign your quilt, do a label and applique over the spot. If sig. is already done, why not do a quote that means something to you or the person who will receive the quilt. Happy quilting :D

    The hole is in the joining seam. I'll have to get some fray check. Looked at it yesterday and didn't pick it up.

    You can use a little snip of a fusible on it. I use Wonder Under.

    Try Bo-Nash. I've heard good things from a professional quilter's site. I bought some and THANK GOODNESS have not had to use it yet!
