    Erinmyone got a reaction from Marti10245 in Fixing cotton eyelashes after the fact   
    So, I managed to quilt about 85% of a Full size quilt with good tension using King Tut on top and bottom, which from what I have now read is nearly impossible on an APQS machine. But after experiencing two top thread breaks I decided to loosen the top thread tension, but like a fool didn't check the back. After removing the quilt and even trimming the edges I noticed the area of eyelashing.
    So the quilt is off the frame and trimmed... Do I rip, reframe and requilt? Or can a little laundry shrinkage suck that cotton King Tut in enough to look passable? Has anyone ever had luck with either of these ideas?
    This is a charity quilt, but it would be nice if it were sturdy and well-made. I would appreciate any help or suggestions.
    Thanks,
    Erin
