    Yesterday I was binding a quilt and discovered that one long corner had flipped up and gotten quilted in. I trimmed the errant fabric really close to the stitch line and was able to pull it free without mishap. Perhaps it will work for you as well Otherwise, you could cover it with your label!

    The baby quilt is wonderful, and oh boy, have I done things like that, too! But you hate to have to rip out stitches! Thanks for sharing with us - we all feel your pain! : )

    I agree with the perfect spot for the label. But if you really want it off, could you trim real close to the stitching, then fray and pull out the remaining fabric threads?? Ann

    That's funny! lol I guess you could always turn it into an ark applique to go with all those fabulous animals, but much easier, I'm sure, to just rip the stitches and re-stitch!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Needed that little triangle for another project so rip-rip-rip. Didn't take long to rip and restitch. I KNEW that other project was on the table, but thought this was such a little quilt it would be fine. Okay, I was wrong. So from now on ... at least while I remember this ... I'll clear that table.

    Thanks for all the fun!
    So many quilts, so little time.

    Oh, phooo!!! that sure looks like something I would do. Thank goodness it's only a little scrap. Marie Osmond had it right: If you're going to laugh about it later, you might as well laugh about it now.

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    LOL with you and not at you! Believe me, I've done worse--including quilting part of one to my bathrobe! I would either turn the edges under or put some rickrack around it and sal that I meant for it to be there. At least it sort of coordinates!

    You probably couldn't do that again if you were trying to do it! I am not sure I would take it out. Maybe applique over it with a quilt label? thanks for the laugh. I could see myself doing something like that.

    Definitely better to laugh at oneself! At least it's an easy fix.
    Quilting is my stability in a busy world.

    Why can't you cut the thread, take it off and then restitch just that area??

    We don't make mistakes!! That's just where you intend to put your label, right?
