    Why does it take so long?

    Why is it you sew for teem minutes and it takes hours to pick it out?? I just quilted a length and a half of a queen size border, it looked awful. So I picked..and picked..and picked some more. So frustrating!
    Thanks for letting me rant!

    Depending on how small my stitches are, I carefully pick out a portion of the bobbin thread--long enough to get a good grip on it and pull the thread as if I'm gathering the fabric. Do it gently so the thread doesn't break. I get my seams undone in 2 seconds that way.
