    Scalped and requilted!

    I pieced this scrappy top at the beginning of the year, had it about 1/3 of the way quilted and noticed my tension was whacked. I'd used black thread (on black fabric) and I just couldn't see it well enough to frog it, so I ended up scalping it... that was the first time I'd ever resorted to a razor blade!

    Then I reloaded it and quilted it, so at long last it's done! This pattern is called "Flower Boxes" by Heather Mulder Peterson.

    Beautiful quilt. I know from experience how devastating it is to unquilt a top - I am doing that right now, fortunately I had only quilted one row of 9 inch stipple when I found the problem. Your quilt was well worth the extra effort.
