I'm sure this question has been asked but I couldn't find it. I just finished quilting the largest quilt I've done so far. It is 65 X 70. I checked the top out very carefully then turned it over I bet you all know what I found. I so diligently basted it but I found a pucker in it about 5 inches long. There are about 2 spots that are pretty deep. How have you all fixed this problem? Should I just take out the area that is puckered and try to fix or do I really have to take all of out. I need some ideas on how to fix it without having to take the whole quilt apart. Thank you to anyone that can help me out.

I would just take out the area that is puckered and try to work out as much of the pucker as possible.  Good luck.

Thank you both for you answers Nana and Barbara. I have been so stressed out about it. I really took my time and I still did it.

Melissa ,happen all the time , you just can't always catch it when quilting.  but I do try an stop about every 15 or 20 mins  to see how my back is looking or when I change positions
