I am hoping ya'll can help me. I had just finished sewing on the last row of a quilt. I was pressing it when I noticed a cut/tear along the seam-line of one of the blocks.

How can I fix this?

It is small maybe ¼ inch. Any suggestions would be so very appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

I Would Remove and Re-Sew
by: Rhonna

Hi, quilts are forever. I would remove the piece and replace it with an undamaged one. But it looks like you can just sew it "in", but I cant tell if that would distort the quilt top. You can also applique over it after hand sewing the cut. Might want to do this in a pattern on the quilt to make it flow.

I wonder if you could use a fabric glue.
