    just remember to adhere to ALL the cautions on the spray basting can....many become highly ill when using it..so KNOW if you can tolerate the chemicals..and make sure the room is VERY well ventilated..not just an open window either..but a VERY open room. NO kids or pets in the house during the spraying or for a few hours after wards!

The T-pins are easy to pull out, and won't hurt your carpet. The hard part is all the bending and crawling around on the floor. I'm not as young as I used to be. I have to give Alex Anderson credit for this method. I saw it once on Simply Quilts. The video may still be available on HGTV's website.
    thanks for your reply and I think that is what I did, pulled it too tight. I will have a look at the video and also try the basting spray. Ah well, looks like I have to unpin and redo, but at least I don't have to undo stitching. Thanks every one for your advice I knew I could count on you all.
