    Love the quilt.
    Oh I agree! It will be your little private secret and if the quilt is going to a relatives baby, you can tell the 'secret' years from now when the child is grown! What a story that will be!!!

    Oh NOOOOOOO! Great quilt and nice job on the quilting. I like Homespun's idea for removing the offending triangle if you don't need it for another project. I will have to remember that for the next time it happens to me.

    Yesterday I was binding a quilt and discovered that one long corner had flipped up and gotten quilted in. I trimmed the errant fabric really close to the stitch line and was able to pull it free without mishap. Perhaps it will work for you as well Otherwise, you could cover it with your label!

    The baby quilt is wonderful, and oh boy, have I done things like that, too! But you hate to have to rip out stitches! Thanks for sharing with us - we all feel your pain! : )

    I agree with the perfect spot for the label. But if you really want it off, could you trim real close to the stitching, then fray and pull out the remaining fabric threads?? Ann
