Operation: Extraction

I have officially finished my doll quilt for the Doll Quilt Swap! I will post photos after my swap partner receives it. However. This morning, as I was quilting it, I noticed something...
Piece of red fabric UNDER the white...
What is that little piece of red doing under all white, in the area that I just quilted! It's all sealed off!! Now I think it was just showing because I dampened it to get the water-disappearing marking pen off, but I didn't want to take any chances. Especially since this is my first swap! So what could I do? I took out my trusty seam ripper and un-sewed my quilting and pretty much tunneled a pathway to that little bugger. Then I got a pair of chopsticks and fished that stinking piece of fabric out. I felt very stereotypically chinese.
Extracting the fabric
All better now!
