Every once in a while, I come across a spot on a quilt that needs to be fixed while it is on the long arm. I thought I’d show you how I do that. I had quilted over half of this quilt when I noticed a whole.
You can see that the border slipped while sewing and a hole was created.
I unpicked the seam on both ends back to where the seam allowance was correct. Then I realigned everything and pinned it in place. I used the long arm to resew the seam.
It isn’t perfectly straight, but much better than it was.
And it looks good from the front.
On the back, you see a straight line of stitching, but it isn’t noticeable from a distance.
I’m glad I found this when I did. If I hadn’t, it is possible that my longarm foot could have gotten caught and torn the fabric.
I hope this helps if you ever end up in this situation. Have a great day!
