    I designed this jacket for a guild retreat. It is foundation pieced and then quilted with my long arm. It was very hard to keep the piecing precise as you sewed and flipped the strips! I will not try piecing a jacket this way again. I am also sending it to Machne Quilting Today in a couple of weeks.

    Using a silicone spatula will also pull all the treads out--easily and quickly.

    Go to the Dollar Tree and ick up a pack of the school erasers.. many colors but use to be only pink. Use them to pull cut threads to the side where you can easily pick up the threads. Pulls them right on out. Gloves I think they are Hemostat gloves or cotton cosmetic gloves all help, too. the gloves, either kind work better with just a minimal bit of moisture. \ \Sigh! I've done it ........................often. lol sob

    If you are getting little "bumps" on your fabric after washing it may have poly in it as well as cotton. Poly reacts with friction and with heat. The fibers snap and form little "bumps" or better known as pills. I have used good old satin and it looked fabulous but, of course, I didn't win anything. I put quilts into shows just to show ordinary folks what ordinary quilters do!!!
