    Is there another handquilter out there who plucks out the stitches that are a little too large, or too small, or a little crooked, or....and re-stitches?

    That's me too! I'm not trying to be perfect, but just consistent with my stitches. Practice, practice, and more practice!!

    I sure do if I am not happy with that stitch or stitches.

    Not unless it is really bad, I just try to make the next set of stitches better than the last ones!

    Not unless its totally unbearable! I figure I'm human and this is handmade and that's what makes it special. I've started handquilting at one point and say 8-10 stitches and by the time I'm done I can be up to twelve. Big deal, not doing it for show, mostly out of love and that's never ugly. :thumbup:

    I'm not trying for perfect but if it is really obvious and I know I can do better I will take it out.

    Yes, it's me too! I do "backwards quilting" very often, especially when I use contrasting thread.

    Only when it is glaringly obvious.
