    Congratulations on making the decision to unsew. Your situation is special since your niece designed her room around the colors in the quilt. And thanks to the quilter who will resew and hopefully her generosity will reflect well on other longarmers. I also hope you let the first quilter know so she can improve her skills before doing more work professionally. That was the best advice I received when starting out...don't quilt for others until someone objective and willing to be honest says you are ready. Can't wait to see the quilt.

    I am so glad your quilting disaster is going to have a happy ending! I wish I lived near you, I'd come for the ripping-out party. I'd even bring my famous black brownies. And God bless Pungogal, and all the generous souls here on QB!

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    I'm glad you're going to rip it out - you'll be glad you did. And I totally understand, I would probably have to do the same thing!!! I do encourage you to at least let the shop know that this person isn't ready for prime time quilting. They risk their reputation and they don't want that.

    Thank you for angels that step up to the plate!! And don't forget to show us the newly quilted quilt!!

    An act like this renews one's believe in human kind. So often we read and see selfish acts carried out publicised in the press and we feel disheartened, and upset. This as I say is a wonderful thing.

    If I lived closer to you, we could have a big frog party (rippit), and get the show on the road faster. There would be lots of volunteers to help, I'm sure.
    Never confuse the will of the majority with the Will of God.

    And have you asked all the standard questions of this new quilter, seen samples of her work, checked her references? I hope it works out well for you this go 'round.

    Great news! You will find that quilter's are some of the nicest folks around. Who better to know the heartache of all that hard work making a top being ruined?!
