so this sucks.
Right now, there are two things that suck. The first is my FMQ ability, or lack there of. The second is unpicking said FMQ.
I have 24 hours before this quilt needs to be done. Yikes. I should probably be unpicking rather than posting about how sucky the unpicking is, shouldn’t I? Ok. Deep Breath. Let’s do this.

I happened across a link to a video of an easy way to unpick machine quilting the other day: http://ferfab.blogspot.com/2009/12/skinning-quilt.html
Can you try a few patterns on a scrap sandwich before you start again to find something that works without needing to unpick if it doesn’t? The scrap sandwich only need be around A4 size though a bit bigger is better.
I hear you! My machine doesn’t FMQ well.. it keeps skipping stitches or getting massive knots underneath. I’ll keep trying….
Good luck! Can’t wait to see the finished product!
