I had just rolled a quilt I was working on when I noticed that there was a fold in the batting. I put my hand between the quilt top and batting to tug the batting flat when I felt a poke. How did a pin get in there I wondered.

I pulled the quilt top back and discovered this.

The batting had folded over when being made resulting in a thick ridge of batting. And in that ridge I found this

A needle from the needle punch machine that makes the batting. It was wedged into the batting ridge. So glad I found this before I ended up quilting over it. Can't imagine what damage that would have done to my quilting machine.
 This was a sealed package of batting that I discovered the needle in. Next time I use one, I think I'll lay the batting out and make sure it's all good.


  1. ack...that was my quilt wasn't it!!!??? I still haven't posted my quilts you of these days i'll get back into blog land..but in the meantime, feel free to post them!
