    done that too -- actually you can cut the piece away from the quilting ! I used small scissors and bright lighting to make sure I cut accurately....then you don't have to rip the quilting.
    Nice quilt !

    Sorry, I haven't read all the posts, but my suggestion is to put the label over that patch!

    Too funny! Just think of it as creative license.

    Yes, that's an easy fix if you trim as close to the stitching as possible on one side of the stitching, then pull it away from the stitching on the other side. Funny though!

    If it is bothering you....It looks close enough to the edge that you could hand stitch your quilt label over it? Or a heart....the fabrics are wonderful!...even the green triangle!

    It looks cute, but not what you wanted. Can you cut close to the stitching with sharp scissors, the pull the theads out?

    Very cute quilt.

    Been there done that only it was a Kwik Sew pattern envelope and the pattern was in it! I was using invisible thread which I now hate and was doing a lot of meandering. Boy what a mess! Count your blessings it could have been a much bigger piece of fabric. Nice quilt, for a special baby.

    Don't feel alone. When I was taking Home Ec in 6th grade about 60 years ago, I sewed my poodle skirt right into my project. My next lesson was on frog sewing, "rip-it, rip-it, rip-it". It was a lesson that I have practiced many time since so now I rip-it very well. LOL and I'm glad you could laugh about your boo boo also.

    I did that with a sweatshirt makeover, and I got a piece caught in the inside. I told everybody it was my "signature".

    That sounds like a good idea to me. I hate to rip quilting stitches.

    It is a one of a kind. If that is the worst that ever happens, be thankful

    Maybe somehow you could make a lable out of this. Or not. So sorry for the extra material that hopped on your quilt.

    I've done that. I either put the label there or trim close to the stitching and shred the threads out of there.

    The backing is flannel and the little triangle is from another project that was ready and waiting -- too close to the sewing machine, I reckon.

    I'll rip --- tomorrow!
    You know, in so many of the movies made today there's always a teaser at the end to give you the hint of the upcoming sequel..... you may be starting something - a glimpse of your upcoming quilt as your signature on each completed one!
