tigger & roo will also need some touching up. I have noticed something that is different from all of the other blocks with this block can you tell what it is? & can you tell me how to fix it?

ok well I am glad like I said that no one has noticed but Roo has not been outlined in black like all of the rest of this & the other designs too? Not sure why but since it has gone un-detected I will leave it~Hugs & thanks to you all~ Loralye~

I did manage to fix the color around tigger & stitched in the "blanks" with orange. That was not my worry though & I am very glad that it has gone un-noticed sew I think that I was worried for nothing. Do you want me to tell what it is?

When I blow it up I can see the design shifted but someone
mentioned below and not sure if the brown one needs an outline or something.

This is like like the picture game 'finding waldo'. I think Roo's arm did not stitch out. Can you touch it up with marker of the same color as the rest of him? Your quilt is going to be wonderful when you get it all put together. Can't wait to see

well the light color beige is the inside of his arm up in the air, I had to go & check this too.~thanks I am getting ready to start putting things together~Hugs Loralye~

I read everyone else comments after I had written mine - so i had to go back and look. I think the idea of the marker is good - if you want to go to that much trouble. I don't think anyone will notice unless you point out there is a problem.

It is delightful and playful that way. They are cartoon characters and if you are coloring a page in a coloring book a child would not always stay in the lines. I would leave it alone.

Looks like tiger over bounced trying to leave his outline. Marker orange match. Or could hand embroider fill thread in the spots. The plus is it is not big out of line. Myself, I would see if had marker match.Otherwise leave it as not that noticeable I am sure as you would be seeing all the Pooh land chacters on whole quilt and over look. Pretend his paws have touch of white.

Perhaps using a cut away stabilizer would help the outlines on Tigger.

Is it possible your fabric and stabilizer are being pulled into the middle of the hoop while you embroider? This would cause the outlines and parts of the design to not match up to the rest of the design.


You could try using the Shelf Liner strips adhered to the bottom of you inner hoop to stop the movement of your fabric and stabilizer whille stitching.

Link below to Criswell Website showing how to put the Shelf Liner strips on you hoop. click each picture for a close look at each.

This holds all types of fabric and stabilizers tight in the hoop so no movment occurs.

Could also be a design not digitzed right.

You could also try a test stitchout and stitch the outline of Tigger first (black -last color in the design) and then stitch the whole tigger design incuding the outline again and see if the outlines line up better.

Stitching the outline first acts like a basting stitch to hold the fabric and stabilizer in place so no movement occurs while you stitch the whole design.

The only way to save the already stitched design would be to fill it in with a permaent marker.

Is it that there is no outline around Roo? Not sure how to fix that one. Your quilt is going to be amazing! The squares are fantastic! Janis
