    Red face My quilt was saved!!!

    Before Christmas, I posted about a batik quilt that a highly recommended LA quilter completely messed up. The stitching was very uneven and there were huge holes from the needle. I was just sick about it because it was to have been a Christmas gift and there was no way that I could give it to anyone in the condition that it was returned to me. I don't think that I was ever so disappointed as I was when I pulled it out of the box. I did get a partial refund from the original LA but I wish now that I had pushed for a full refund.

    The pictures of the truly bad stitching are here - http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...d-t168970.html

    Aubrey, of Aubrey's Quilting Creations took the quilt, tore it apart and washed the top and back, and re-quilted it. I'm so pleased! The quilting is gorgeous and she saved the Christmas gift for my good friend. If I look closely, I can see the holes left by the first LA quilter, but Aubrey saved it!

    One thing about uneven stitches, they are easy to take out! But a batik quilt is hard to get the needle holes out of, my hats off to Aubrey's Quilting creations!
    Enjoy The Art!

    Aubrey sure worked miracles on that quilt. I would not send a quilt out, I don't trust anyone after it would leave my hands. I don't do great work but, it is my work. I'm glad all turned out well for you anf the quilt.
    Aubrey really did a wonderful job with it.

    Great news! This quilt is a beauty and so glad it could be saved. I am so suprised that a longarmer would give you your quilt back with those huge holes and horrible quilting. Goes to show you not all quilters know what they are doing.

    I just looked at the first post. Good grief, what was she using a jack hammer? It was a beautiful quilt and thankfully Aubrey saved it!

    So wonderful your quilt was saved. It is a beautiful quilt. Bad longarm quilters is why I bought a LA machine.

    Your quilt looks great now !! And yes, sorry you had to deal with that LA girl. Perhaps a washing or two, and maybe the fabric will be more forgiving. Thanks for Posting.

    So glad this story has a happy ending. Congratulations to you for your persistence and to Aubrey for being able to fix it. I do hope you are sharing your experience with other quilters in your area about the first LA's quality of work.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Such a pretty quilt! I'm so glad Aubrey saved it for you. Excellent quilting job this time. I consider myself an amateur when it comes to the quilting part, but I can certainly do better than the long arm quilter did. I'd be ashamed to send it back to you in that condition, much less charge for it!!!! That was horrible!

    EXCELLENT job and thanks for coming up to help save the quilt. I can imagine the unpicking, and washing took about and if not more time than the quilting in the end. YOU ARE VERY KIND to have offered. Well done to you both

    What good news. I'm so glad it could be saved.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Looks great now . The first quilter should have given you a full refund without hesitation and without being asked!

    When I learned how to quilt, I forgot how to cook.

    That is good news, and a great save! The quilt is very pretty, in spite of all the stress created by the first quilter.
