Are you making a bed quilt or a throw quilt. If a throw, I'd make it in the colors she likes. If a bed quilt, I'd ask her about her preferences.

My machine hated the metro, it made such terrible noises I thought I broke it! It didn't like sigma much more. I'm glad I tried just one spool before stocking up.

I don't think it can be "fixed" the way you want it to be, so I'd stop trying.
However, if you hadn't taken it apart, I don't think it needed to be fixed. It is a pretty typical top for a beginner,...
