This is how I'll spend my night!

Keith is out of town so I might as well spend the evening and night picking out the mess I've made of this quilt! Luckily the bar stool from the kitchen is the perfect height - which I found out last time I had to pick out a row of stitching. I've already warned Mom that I'm making a mess of the quilting on this quilt.

So sorry you had problems with it... is it all better now?

For what it's worth, I do love the color of the fabric you're working on... lol

And here I thought you only had to undo quilting on a regular machine but never on a longarm! What happened? It looks fine in the picutre.

bummer - I have done this a couple of times when I try to machine quilt - now I usually only do straight lines unless I am handquilting.

My house usually gets VERY clean when I am picking out stitches. Pick for 30 minutes, decide that cleaning the bathroom sounds like fun, pick for 30 more minutes, clean the oven, etc.

Good luck with the 'un-quilting'.

Hope the walk helped. I hate un-sewing SO much.

Oh Mary - I feel for you. Taking out longarm quilting is the pits. I have done more than I would like to think about.

Oh, Mary--I'm sorry that you had a bad day at that machine and now have to un-quilt it. It happens, I guess but still, not fun. You probably did the right thing and just went for a walk when it was not going well.

Chesty looks so cute in the picture. You can almost guess what he is thinking. Like a kid tossing his head back and eyes rolling.

You really have done a great job with all the string blocks, stack the deck and I love how the Baptist Fans look on the blue strings---very striking and classic!
