I would take out the quilting for that one strip...fix it...hand blind stitch it back in and then put the quilt on the frame and very carefully stitch the lines for each panto row...it's such a small section, and if you use the panto on the front to line it up (just take a section that has the design area you need, place it on a board on the quilt...use the laser to follow that part of the design. Or you can use tracing or even freezer paper to stitch over the paper design you need...making templates to put on each section & quilt over. I usually never bury threads, this is one situation, I'd bury the threads.

The quilting is very close and if I took the section out, I doubt very seriously if I could match the panto back up and fix it without being noticed. I thought about appliqueing something over it. But what? Help!!!!!

Oh man, that's painful to look at!! I would have to agree with others that suggest hand stitching the correct light squares on top of the brown. It would at least camouflage the error so it doesn't scream at you. I think you could then use your regular sit down machine to fill in the quilting rather than put it back on the long arm. Good luck. The quilt is gorgeous!

Don't know if I would replace it. It is beautiful. How about just renaming it Earthquake Happening.

I'm sure I'm the only one who would keep it just like it is! Every quilt is unique and this would be a unique one for sure! I think it's wonderful just the way it is!

I am so sorry that this has happen to you I feel your pain I have done this to a quilt myself and decided to just keep it as is like I did it on purpose. But I haven't on other quilts and ended up taking them apart because I just didn't know what else to do. I would like to see how you fix it.
