I have finished my quilt blocks but had to use a very small seam in the middle. I checked them before starting my backing and realized one side has come loose. Is there any way to fix this without having to tear my quilt apart?
I had this happen to me while I was quilting a quilt and since it was for my cats I just did what I thought was best which was finding a matching thread and carefully stitching the pieces together (without showing on the back). I guess kind of a blind top stitch. I hope this makes sense.
Hi llarson, it is nice to meet you. Did you use a 1/4" seam? You said you had to use a small seam, pieced quilts are usually pieced with a 1/4" seam. Jesse's suggestion is a good one. I'm assuming from what you said that you already have the back on and quilted, if not, can you re-sew the part that came apart and if you can - when I have a spot where it pulls apart, after I re-sew the seam, I put some fray check along the stitching about 2" before the repair and continue abt 2" after for a little extra insurance.
Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love
