  1. Oh MY! Such an earthshaking problem! BooHoo! Thank goodness for the quilting rescuer! TaDa! Awesome solution! Now we need photos of the second reveal! 🙂

    Wonderful solution, though I think they’re fine without the quilting!

  3. Well Roseanne, if they really do bother you so much, I definitely think you should take them apart and quilt them. I wouldn’t hand quilt because they wouldn’t match the spread, unless you want to ass some hand Quilting to there too….I bet that made you smile and faint in your chair! Lol😊. But really, it doesn’t take too long to unsew and you will be much happier for the years you will enjoy this quilt❤️❤️

    Since you asked for my two cents (you did, didn’t you?) Life is too short, there are waaayyyy more projects to try, and they look beautiful as they are. Love your completed projects as you would want to be love – just as you are! Seriously though I found a wonderful quote by Debi Payne Designs: “Imperfection is a form of Freedom”. Oh yes it is!

    Hello Roseanne; I did not notice they were not quilted, just how beautiful all of the fabulous colors worked brilliantly together in this design! Plus, also thinking to myself that I would love to make a full blown quilted bed cover, but I do not know if I could handle it. LOL. You sure did a great job! For the pillow covers, the choice is totally up to you and what you want to do. It would make for a fun project to take with and work on at any time until they were both finished and you were satisfied to put them back on the bed. I look forward to seeing what you decide! Have a great day!

    I think they look awesome, just as they are! Most of us (including me) don’t even make matching pillows! And yours are a dream!

    One of my best skills is seam ripping — send them over and I’ll expertly rip those suckers and send them back to you 🙂

  8. Shannon Fleming says:

    I like Pam’s idea of using the seam ripper! If you can, that is. Otherwise the hand stitching is a good option. I think they should be quilted to match the bed. I’m all for matchy, matchy!

    I don’t have an issue with them, but they are not on my bed. I think hand quilting them is a great idea, it gives you a project, and at this point if they aren’t on your bed, what does it matter if they are out of commission for a few months?

  10. I’m glad I could help and at least give you another option! 🙂

  11. I agree with the other commenters, I didn’t even notice they weren’t quilted until you pointed it out. Think about how much it bothers you. If not as much as before and you can live without them being quilted, then so be it. They still look great with that beautiful quilt. However, big quilting would be a fun addition, if you still want to get them quilted.

    Another example of being too hard on yourself! It’s easy to do…we all do it! Meltdowns happen, but I like your quote…it’s only fabric. And it is. It’s taken me years to get to that point! Luckily you found the perfect solution! I love the picture of the quilt and pillows! They are gorgeous!

    I really didn’t notice that the shams weren’t quilted. I was just looking at the beautiful quilt. So glad you found a solution AND hand quilting is so relaxing.

  14. I didn’t notice that the pillows weren’t quilted — I don’t always quilt my pillows. Big stitch hand quilting would work or if it bothers you that much just take the back off and quilt them — that might be the quickest route. I think they are beautiful as is 🙂

  15. Pam says:

    I don’t really think it matters that they aren’t quilted. If it bothers you that much, you could just unstitch the backing off the pillow shams and quilt them and put it back. I think it would take less time to do that than to hand stitch them. I know it is frustrating, but not the end of the world. Your quilt is beautiful and the pillows look nice on the bed. Also, you could add some more solid color, smaller pillows around it (that aren’t quilted).

Please leave a reply - we would love to hear from you!
