Crazy Quilt and Tissue Paper
Hi everyone -
I took my crazy quilt to a local quilter for a simple meander pattern. Because the blocks are top stitched (meant to ravel and eventually the edges will roll over), the quilter covered the top of the quilt with tissue paper so her machine wouldn't get caught on the edges of the blocks. Now I am stuck with removing the tissue paper - and the bigger pieces are a pain in the neck enough, but also there are bits stuck under the quilting itself. I have resorted to picking these out with tweezers and it is taking forever.
Has anyone else run into this issue? And does anyone know of an alternative way this could have been quilted without the tissue paper? I have another one I'm making (a Christmas motif) and am wondering if I could avoid this hassle next time.
