    Thanks everyone! Scalping is where you leave the quilt on the longarm, and lift the top and the batting away from the backing fabric to expose the stitches, then run a razor blade (I use my rotary cutter) lightly against the stitches. Unless you're incredible careful, it often destroys the batting and the backing, but the top is safe. It's a last ditch effort... but if you've ever tried to frog out black thread on black fabric...

    Have you ever used an eye brow shaper. It is a razor cover that his little slits where the thread can slide in but you don't cut your fabric.

    The quilt is beautiful. I especially like the floral border and all the plaids.

    "Whacked, frog it, scalped, and reloaded". I don't know what any of this means, but from the looks of your quilt, you finally "whipped" it into shape!. haha It looks great!

    You are doing very well. A friend who does lots of LA for pay tells me that she hardly ever uses black thread on balck fabric for that reason. She uses a deep grey, which gives just enough contrast.

    Thanks all! I'm hoping to get the binding finished this week, I haven't kept a quilt for myself in like... forever! This one is staying with me. It's a panto for the quilting.

    I really like your flower box quilt and the colors are beautiful against the black. Sometimes it is best to rework especially when its as beautiful as your quilt. Thanks for sharing.
