    i saw somewhere that if you use color pens to match the quilt top where holes are it helps hide the ripped out stitches with just filling it in with small dots of ink
    we can make our plans but the out come is in god,s hands nellie diaz

    Even just a little spritz with water will get rid of those marks...if you don't want to wash it

    Washing it gently will remove the needle wholes. Cotton has a memory and this will erase that problem.

    spritzing with a wrinkle release product does the trick most of the time. I buy mine from Dollar General or Family Dollar for about $1.50.

    Either wash it, or spray water on the holes, then dry it.
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    Washing and drying should do it.

    Even though you are unhappy about the needle holes, be glad she took out the offending rows. Think how much angrier you would be if she had left it?????? Wash and dry the quilt, it fixes a multitude of sins.
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.
