    Me, too. People on this board worry about things that don't worry me at all. I am doing my best to use up odds and ends of thread that my mother used 50 years ago. Unless it's black on white or vice versa, it won't matter after it's quilted and if it does show, so what? froggyintexas

    ok, I HATE unsewing... can you stitch just inside of the pink with a neutral thread and just leave it in?

    It's all out and sewn in a very light neutral. I am strange and that's just me but I knew it was there and if there was much moisture it would have stuck out like a sore thumb.


    This is going to be a baby quilt for PL and I want it to be as perfect as can be for the little recipient.

    I use the rotary tool to undo stitching... just use my left hand to hold the two ends and carefully run the blade over the stitches, sort of the same as using a razor blade (which I need to get some off, so much easier for getting stitches out)

    glad you got it sorted, I too would have undone it
