I didn't like the results.
Too uneven, too many unwanted wrinkles, my inner critic said.
SO, as I had wondered about tearing the stitches out & hand-quilting the piece, I decided to embark on answering that wonder.
It takes a while to pick out machine stitching. A seam-ripper is the tool & you have to be really careful not to cut the fabric, just the threads.
I decided to use the sewing lines I had made.
The little holes in the fabric were still visible.
That made it pretty easy.
I really like the difference!!
Hand quilting is less linear & more dotty looking. And softer.
I was using electric light for these, not flash.
You can tell the light is on the left.... oh well....
Anyway, now I'm wondering about this one.
Will I'll re-do it?
That's all for now.
Happy New Year!
