See those very tiny stitches where the center is appliqued down? Yeah, too tiny for the seam ripper. I ended up using a needle to unpick them. I was able to replace the center.
Unfortunately there's 12 of these centers that I'm working on. See description here of what I'm doing to make them not look and feel lumpy.
After I snipped the one above, I was super careful to keep my fingers between the seam allowance and the center fabric when I trimmed the next one. So I snipped my finger. Yeesh! Fortunately I didn't get any blood on the project.
So why am I going to all this trouble for these Dresden centers? Because this quilt means a lot to me and I want it to be of a good enough quality that I can enter into shows. I was inspired by something I saw at AQS Paducah in 2017, and I'm hoping this one can be entered into an AQS show when it's finished.
