Oh no, Sewbiz! You can take it apart- I’ve had to do that before.

No... it's very densely quilted. No way it's being picked out.

Oh. SBG, won't some museum curator be surprised in 100 years when then inspect your quilt for its batting and quilting and find an hidden top! They will be confounded! Sorry for the loss of a quilt top but you now have a new story for your family to tell.

Thanks, all.... I was in shock for a couple of days, but last night I bound the quilt and called it finished. Moving on!

Thanks Sewbizgirl for your kind thought of me and I send sympathy thoughts to you for the loss of that top, a blessing will come out of all of that

Stay safe everyone

I'm still delving into the scraps. Found a few more bins of them upstairs... I also started to put together my Farmer's Wife 1930's quilt blocks, which have been stacked in a pile for years! I think I'm going to love this quilt once I get it all together. Definitely a well seasoned UFO....

Giving this a try... if it works you should see my finished Carolina Crossroads, all made from men’s shirts.

The picture! It’s a miracle!

Sewbiz, Im sorry!! That mistake would stun me like a taser! All that hard work for nothing but an eztra pretty layer. At least you can count the finished quilt as two UFOs done.
