And then... this "Rat's Nest" happened (and this is even after I removed some of the stitching):
So what do I do now? This is on the last third of the quilt. My first thought was to throw it across the room and light it on fire. After that I thought I could just cut a third of the blanket off... after that I thought maybe I should just remove more of the quilting and try again. Maybe if I remove the quilting from the "Rat's Nest" all the way over to the right it might relieve it and maybe re pin it... any suggestions?
Is this primarily the result of a bad basting job?? Is this why people use spray basting? I pinned about every 5 inches... but I also don't really know how to start in the middle of the quilt without making a mess of the thread... so I have been working from the sides and I think it caused a bit of an issue -- obviously.
Anyway...for now I am going to leave it alone and move on to sewing some squares together for my "Someday Chevron Quilt".
