    I just got a quilt back from the quilters and in putting my binding on have found some problems. The pattern was Tile Tango and she quilted butterflies in the open blocks in pink then did a wavy line around my squares and roses on the border. The butterflies were done in pink with white bobbin thread and her tension was off and you can see the pink thread on the back of the quilt. Also, there is another place that the quilting has come out. What do I do?

    I'd take it back to her and ask her to fix it. She is the one who bears the responsibility of a good finished job!

    I agree take it back. You paid good money to have this done and she needs to fix it.

    I think you would have to take that off.

    You should have her make the repair. If the problem isn't close to the binding I think you could leave it on

    I agree too.. take it back.. if you are not happy with the service, then the quilter should either fix the problem or return your payment.

    definetly take it back so she can adjust her machine, for others and she needs to repair this for you. The price of quilting is too expensive to let this slide.
