    Kudos to you for a very creative way to "fix" things! Your blocks are lovely too!

    This redwork is done with perle cotton thread. It was perfect for these patterns since there wasn't anything too small to stitch.

    Thank you everyone for the positive feedback. I was so upset when I first looked at my mess I could have cried. So nice to have a turn around. I do think stepping away for a bit really helped. I was bound and determined not to remove any of those hard placed hand stitches! I kept looking at the posted directions for QAYG and finally decided that it "should" work! I have to admit that the first cut into the back was very, very hard!

    I hope no one else ever has to face this disaster but if they do at least now we know the quilt can be fixed and made useable!

    Wow, beautiful quilt and you did an awesome job. Did you quilt in / around the redwork squares? A friend wants me to quilt her wall hanging size quilt and it has redwork on it. Anyone have any ideas on how to quilt it? I don't want to take the attention away from the redwork. Thanks
