    I sent my first quilt top, an oversized king size log cabin, to a relative to quilt. She has a quilting machine and she said she would do it cheap. The problem is, I got what I paid for.
    The quilt is ruined unless I rip out everything she did. The quilt is full of puckers.
    Does anyone have any advice?
    Should I just start ripping?
    I don't want to hurt the relatives feelings but I won't be sending her anymore quilts to quilt.

    Oh, I am sorry to hear that. Can you do pics??? There are many good LA'ers on the board and I'm sure someone could give you good advice.

    that is awful.some times people do their learning on quilts for others.I did at least 30 quilts before I started for customers.even still I get very nervous when doing a customer quilt.so sorry this went sour on you.

    How disappointing!!!!

    It is a quilt that you are going to keep for yourself???

    I would probably rip it all out. It may take a while but if you don't, every time you look at that quilt you will be unhappy about the quilting done on it.
    I wouldn't send anything to her again. You may want to eventually mention the puckers to her so she knows why you are not going to have her quilt for you again!

    Since it was my very first quilt top, yes, I wanted to keep it. My hubby wanted me to make it extra big so we could use it as a bedspread.
    I am going to try my hand at quilting as I go.

    I would rip it out because you aren't going to want to use it like it is. It's probably not something you even want to donate. Maybe set a goal to do one quarter a week and in a month you will be ready to quilt it again. Good thing she didn't charge you a big price for it. Just get it out and start to take out the stitching. It will probably make you feel better to start the recovery process. So sorry for you!!
