Default would you rip this out?

This is my frozen quilt and I took the advice of the ladies on here to go around the girls in the panel and the do stippling all around the rest of the quilt

This is the problem I am having.. I think it is from going to fast around, I ended up with eye lashes on some of the design. I am using pink thread on the back and the colors to match the parts of the panel on the top. This was black on the top and the pink on the back. you can see where the black thread shows on the back of the quilt as eye lashes, would you rip this part out and try and do it again.. is there anything that I may be doing wrong to get the eye lashes? Thanks for your help

I am so sorry that you had this problem. Yes, you are probably are going around curves too fast. We are all under the gun to finish our Xmas gifts but just slow down. Since you are making it for a little one, I would redo and learn a hard lesson. There is washing to be done and not sure with an off balance stitches will hold for long. Good Luck.

When I first began fmq, I would nervously move my leg over and lift the pressure foot just a little while turning the fabric. That created a lot of problems for me until I figured out what I was doing. Now I just take the leg lever off when I am FMQing. I also agree with Maniac; it might be from going too fast on the curves.

Many professional longarmers refuse to use different colors thread on top and in the bobbin just because it is hard to adjust the tension perfectly. I don't think you need to take this out, because it will probably not show up this much after the quilt is washed. Even if it does, the quilt is for a child, and the child will never notice, or care, in fact most people who see the quilt would never notice.

Just remember, it's your hands you need to slow down around the curves, not your machine.

I agree with Dunster - the kid will never notice. When I give a quilt, I also give a promise to do any mending for it as long as I live. You could do that and just wait and see if it needs it.

I wouldn't rip it out. Most of that problem will disappear with the first wash. Anything that's left will not be noticed by anyone but you.

ok now I am really confused to rip or not...MMMM I think I will chance it and let it be, I really don't have time to do all this ripping out. so hope it will be ok.. but I will tell the mom if it falls apart I will fix it or make her little girl another one.. Good advice Material Witness ...it does look fine from the front so maybe they won't look to close at the back... I also will try to do better with my FMQ...Thanks so much..

I would not rip. Those look minuscule compared to what I do. Mine had to be ripped out. You could see them from across the room.
