    Thanks! Labyrinth is a great pattern.

    There is no quilting in this photo; it's just the top....including threads I hadn't yet clipped! I may post a photo of the quilted version when I get the binding on. Also, this is small....a table topper or wall hanging. The block is 16" and with the borders it measures 26 inches.

    The dark blue starry and the white stars fabric (the red is fabric I already had) is from Joann's and was 50% off. All their red, white and blue fabric was and still is, on sale. I bought a RWB stripe yesterday for binding at 50% off. The selvedge on these fabrics read: Made exclusively for Joann's. It is, of course, 100% cotton.

    I rip out quilting stitches if I don't like the way it looks.

    Yes, I have ripped out ALL the stitching on a wall hanging I was making. I had embroidered THE BEAUTITUDES-ten blocks and put sashing between all the blocks and a border around it. It was beautiful until I tried to stitch in the ditch around all the blocks. They kept shifting and when I got done it looked terrible. I took out all the stitching (I had used invisible thread) and put it aside for about a month. I decided I was going to finish it or throw it out so I used a heavier backing on it-pinned it really, really well-then did the stitch in the ditch thing again. It turned out beautiful. Glad I tried again.

    Love it. Yes, to your question. Just finished a king size navy quilt for my son. I think in the beginning I did more ripping than anything. It did not turn out the way I wanted to but it will do for now.

    Oh yes, I have taken many stitches out because I didn't like the quilting - its very tedious work - sometimes its really worth it.

    Very pretty. I have used the spray with small pieces and always put a cardboard box lid under the piece to catch the over spray. The upright edges of the lid help a lot

    I've frog stitched piecing before, but haven't had quilting so grotesque that it needed to be ripped out...at least not in my eyes. But then, I usually view my quilts from the back of a galloping horse! lol I wish you much sanity as you proceed down your path to perfection. Thanks for sharing.

    The good news is - you're the pilot!

    Too bad you had so many issues because that is one very striking quilt.

    Yes, I have been know as the Ripper! You have a beautiful quilt. Good luck with quilting it yourself, but I know that you can do it. You will see quilting design that the quilt will just be begging for. Take your time and listen to the quilt. Its with in all of us! Did I say your quilt is beautiful, wow! Your a woman after my own heart. Be kind to yourself and the design for quilting will just flow from you. Enjoy the process, I enjoyed your sharing.
    Believe, it can be done!

    Thanks to all who commented on my little 4th of July tabletopper. I ripped out the first quilting and re-quilted on the machine (SITD) with some straight line quilting on the outer blue border. Here it is finished, binding and all! Name:  4th Tabletopper & Mistywood pics 019.jpg

    I love the fabrics you used in this block. It looks great!!! I love high loft batting but when I was trying out a longarm the other day, the lady explained the problems that high loft exposes when machine quilting. As the person who started the other thread, I can say your block looks great!!!! You did a super job!
    A finished quilt excites me!! Whether is it mine or yours!

    Yes, I did rip out the quilting on a king size applique quilt. The longarmer stitched around each of my applique designs on top of the design. She used a clear non-filament thread. It was tedious but I took it all out and had it done by another longamer quilt it and was very happy with her work - I was glad I had ripped out the original quilting. Your quilt is beautiful.
