Unquilting
 
2 Attachment(s)
This poor quilt has been waiting since about May of 2012 to get finished. I started out hand quilting in each block. The stencil was not the same size as the blocks, and I did not care for it. Fortunately I had only done two blocks. Then I thought I'd just machine quilt the whole thing with straight lines. It started to get very lumpy bumpy. So then it sat for a very long time until I got it out today. I plan to take out every stitch and re-pin. Then I will hand quilt an all over feather design I have. It will take quite some time, but it will be worth it. I like these colors, and do not want to waste the fabric.

Unsewing is not the worst thing in the world. Just be patient and pretty soon it will be apart and you can start over.

You are right, it's too pretty to just let it be. I have been there done that. Just sit in front of a good movie with a good seam ripper and have at it. I use a sheet from one of those tape lint rollers to place all the little threads. I works like fly paper and traps them so they don't end up all over the chair and floor.

PS Your handquilting was nicely done.

You could also leave it and do another line (or 2) of echo quilting around the pattern. Very pretty!
