    red/white crumb or mile a minute quilt

    more crumbs from me....I sent this off to LAQ (not on this board)..she emailed me to tell me that after it was completed there was a pucker on the front. She took out some of the stitching and redid it (easily seen). I guess it was my fault for not having it flat enough??? Anyway, I was a little disappointed with it. Thanks for looking.

    I can't see anything wrong. It looks great. I bet once it's washed and been loved on you won't even be able to see it.

    Maybe you can see it, but I can't, and I have a pretty sharp eye. I think it is beautiful. And of course, my favorite color is red, especially in quilts.

    Its very pretty-can't find the dimple but maybe next time starch your crumb squares before cutting them to prevent this. Love the quilt.

    It looks like your longarmer uses a pantogram so she is quilting from the back of the machine. This does not allow her to catch any small unevenness and ease it out gently like someone who works freehand from the front of the machine. Your block matches look so good. The quilt is wonderful. Look at it as a whole and don't sweat the small stuff.

    If all you are seeing is the holes in the fabric where she took out, those will close back up when washed.

    I can't see the bad spot, but I know you can. The quilt is quite lovely, love the color red in a quilt, makes it come alive. You did a great job.

    I really, really like this quilt!! Your color combinations and smaller blocks with the plain blocks have made for a really nice quilt.

    I love your fabric choices! Can't see anything wrong with it at all, but if it really bothers you send it my way and I will give it a good home
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Can't see any problems but it is not your fault. she stretches it on her machine and it is up to her to get it flat.
    Pprobably no one can see it. so don't point it out. lol We are always hard on our own stuff.
    you did a fantastic job. love it.
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.
