    Scalped and requilted!

    I pieced this scrappy top at the beginning of the year, had it about 1/3 of the way quilted and noticed my tension was whacked. I'd used black thread (on black fabric) and I just couldn't see it well enough to frog it, so I ended up scalping it... that was the first time I'd ever resorted to a razor blade!

    Then I reloaded it and quilted it, so at long last it's done! This pattern is called "Flower Boxes" by Heather Mulder Peterson.

    Beautiful quilt. I know from experience how devastating it is to unquilt a top - I am doing that right now, fortunately I had only quilted one row of 9 inch stipple when I found the problem. Your quilt was well worth the extra effort.

    Beautiful job!
    Question: how did you finally quilt it? I have problems seeing the quilting when I'm using matching thread. my stipples start crossing, can't see where the next feather is going to go etc... Any tips would be appreciated.

    Sounds like a lot of work but it came out lovely. I especially love the way you put it on the fence for the photo.
