i am putting together my quilt all three layers and have never had this problem before of coarse i am doing it differant than before i am quilting it together in sections because it is so big and i only have my sears sewing maching but the point is has anyone ever had to take out stiches from doing a meander stitching?? i noticed after i stitched one of the sections i have a big fold on the back of my quilt i guess where the fabric on the backing was not tight enough ohhh sigh i am getting to the point of this quilt to just toss it i have run into a lot of problems and it takes me longer to figure them out than to finishe the quilt i was just wondering if i am the only one that has had this problem !!!! also i think i am just venting a little also !!!!any brainy ideas would help or a miracle that when i go back to the quilt they would of vanished

Sounds like you need to take a break from this one. If it is one for a deadline at least sleep on it; always much clearer in the morning.
we all have our fabulous times with the seam ripper. good luck :wink:

Relax take a deep breath.....and get yourself a wet one , hot or cold, and walk away....it will be there when we come back to it....start working on something that you have started and maybe not finsihed....if you have any..........I do MANY....MANY....

Can you make a large quilt label, and put it over it? Or is it too big for that?

I am just wondering if you are using a walking foot? I'm a beginner, but I understand this type of foot helps to prevent that sort of thing. Sorry you are having that problem :(
