    I saved it! The pattern isn't consistent like it was...but maybe when it's quilted, you won't notice. Still smells scorched!

It got super hot, I smelled burning and it burnt my quilt top! I want to throw up!!! I am ripping out the burnt patches and trying to salvage what I can. Needless to say, my iron burned out. Cheapo iron!! I have a backup...and hopefully some backup fabric to finish this quilt top. I refuse to go to bed till it is solved!
    Oh I am so sorry! Sounds like you have a good plan to salvage it though.
