    Red face My quilt was saved!!!

    Before Christmas, I posted about a batik quilt that a highly recommended LA quilter completely messed up. The stitching was very uneven and there were huge holes from the needle. I was just sick about it because it was to have been a Christmas gift and there was no way that I could give it to anyone in the condition that it was returned to me. I don't think that I was ever so disappointed as I was when I pulled it out of the box. I did get a partial refund from the original LA but I wish now that I had pushed for a full refund.

    The pictures of the truly bad stitching are here - Can this quilt be saved?

    Aubrey, of Aubrey's Quilting Creations took the quilt, tore it apart and washed the top and back, and re-quilted it. I'm so pleased! The quilting is gorgeous and she saved the Christmas gift for my good friend. If I look closely, I can see the holes left by the first LA quilter, but Aubrey saved it!

    One thing about uneven stitches, they are easy to take out! But a batik quilt is hard to get the needle holes out of, my hats off to Aubrey's Quilting creations!
    Enjoy The Art!

    Aubrey sure worked miracles on that quilt. I would not send a quilt out, I don't trust anyone after it would leave my hands. I don't do great work but, it is my work. I'm glad all turned out well for you anf the quilt.
    Aubrey really did a wonderful job with it.

    Great news! This quilt is a beauty and so glad it could be saved. I am so suprised that a longarmer would give you your quilt back with those huge holes and horrible quilting. Goes to show you not all quilters know what they are doing.
