been trying to do for a year. This quilt had to be taken apart. I quilted it by hand and the knots just pulled out. I got so tired of repairing it that it got put away (I will think about it some other day.) And months passed. I called the quilt shop and ask about them machine quilting it . They said I had to take out all of the quilting. That was no easy thing or quick thing to do. BUT IT IS DONE.
