So I had a little "oops" with the seam ripper picking out some quilting and put a small hole in my quilt backing. Wouldn't you know it was in the middle of the backing (which is a single piece of cotton)... It's just a few weave-threads long, maybe 1/4 inch.
This is only my third quilt, so I don't know what the best repair method is - just machine darning the hole? Putting a small piece of fabric underneath (would be inside the quilt) and darning over the hole? Patch of fabric on the outside?
If it was in the border area I'd applique a label over it, but being towards the middle area of the back, I don't know what to do. It's also a Mother's Day surprise present for my elderly mom so I want to do the nicest job possible.
