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...
    that answers one questions (what is scalping?) but now I want to know, What is Frogging?

    Believe me, I know how difficult it is to start over, but it appears it was well worth it.

    Wow - that would have scared me too much to do. If I'd been in the room with you, I'd have been turning my head to avoid looking, lol.

    It worked well though, and the final result is just gorgeous!

    Very pretty. Don't know what scalping is but quilting is very nice.
