Yep, in fact more than one! And unfortunately I have 2 more that I am going to rip out the quilting. One is on a quilt that was given to me almost totally pieced. I named it the quilt from hell! Nothing went right on it! It is at the point where the binding needs to be sewn to the back, but I decided I can't stand the quilting. The other is a king size quilt I was making that got too big and the stitch in the ditch just kept bunching up. Both were put away until I could look at them and not have any bad words come out of my mouth. I think I am ready to start ripping on the king size. I would like it on my bed for spring (okay, for maybe next spring?)

I did one last year. It was a donation quilt and I had quilted it more to make it look better. It didn't so I decided I had to rip and do over. It was straight line quilting which I seldom do. Did my usual FMQ and turned out beautifully. No one would know who made it but I did.

Yes..I did a hand applique quilt, and couldn't wait to quilt it..I got about a third of the quilt quilted when I realized it just wasn't highlighting the applique like I envisioned, so I ripped it out and started over. No regrets, it would have bugged me every day if I hadn't, and I'm so much happier with the quilting now.

I remember doing a lot on one, if you pick on the bobbin side skipping over 6 or more stitches, then flip to front to pull out. Just thought I mention this simple trick. Hope it helps.

Oh yes. I'm still in the process. And the worst part is that i knew I shouldn't do it when I was doing the quilting, but I just kept on going.
