The Saga of Sandy's Mystery Continues

Remember this quilt. This is Sandy's mystery from February of this year. She sent it to me for quilting.

This is what it looked like on the back after I quilted it. Loved the pattern. Loved the thread color. Hated the way the stitches looked when finished.
Well, this is the way the back looks now.

This is the thread that I removed from this quilt. Of course it's only the top thread. The bobbin thread pieces are now on the grass in my back yard.
It only took 28 hours and 30 minutes to take all of the quilting out of this quilt. I am so glad that is over. Now, to decide what color and what type of thread to use to re-quilt it. I was hoping to have it re-quilted to take to Sandy next week, but, I am not sure that is going to happen.

More later,
