OK those of you who know me know I am making a quilt to enter at the Festival of Quilts this year, it is using very special hand dyed fabrics done especially for me by Maggi Birchenough, my friend, who sadly is no longer with us. To do her proud I am going all out on this quilt as you can imagine.
I have hit a problem, this fabric once quilted leaves wholes where the stitches have gone. How do I know this? I have managed to quilt four feathers UPSIDE DOWN, just don’t ask…
Anyway I have unpicked the offending little devils but this is where I found out about the holes left in the fabric, I don’t know how to get rid of them. I am loathe to wet this fabric in anyway as I don’t know if it will water mark, or indeed run….I have googled this problem but all I get is how to remove stitching holes from SINGLE layers of fabric, this has the wadding and backing of course as it is a quilt. I am not overly fussed about the holes on the back, I feel with use they will disappear, it is the ones on the front, that every time I look at them seem to grow bigger and bigger! They don’t of course but it is scary.
So if anyone can give me any hints on how to solve this problem I will be so grateful, the sooner the better too please, pretty please.
If you are reading this on Facebook please go to my blog to answer this as I am not on Facebook right now, I need to give it a rest and I know if I nip on there I will get bogged down……sorry to be a pain, bit like the holes in my quilt!
Thanks in advance ladies and gents.
