What are the best ways to coax backing fabric to relax and minimize the appearance of needle holes that expose the batting? I discovered in the forums that my customer falls into the "red, tight weave, wide backing fabric" category - which apparently has issues with needles, even brand new ones. Of course, I immediately took steps to prevent the holes (smaller needle, looser quilt, etc.), but I would appreciate your suggestions on what I can do to improve the appearance of the back.
I had to do some frogging on a custom quilt. After all the sewing was undone, I tried spraying a little water on the needle holes and rubbing with a clothes brush, but the holes remained. Then I got an idea. Try the Downy Wrinkle Releaser, AND IT WORKED!!! I sprayed it on and brushed with a clothes brush and let it rest a minute. Most of the holes were gone.
