Oh dear


The pinning of my king size quilt is Not Going Well.

It looks good:


But under that deceptively smooth top is a backing that came loose of its tape and developed a couple of large wrinkles in the middle of one side.  I also think that the lack of tension means there will be a lot of puckers when the quilting starts.

I’m in denial, brainstorming solutions, because deep down, I know that the only workable answer is removing all the pins, taping it down better, and repinning.  It took almost 3 hours to pin.  My fingers are sore.  I stayed at work on a dark and stormy night.  It used every curved safety pin I own, each one of which I’ll have to unpin.  I don’t want to do it all over again.

But I know I’m going to have to face it.  It has to be redone.
