I Changed It....

I changed the date.  Those of you who know me well, probably knew that I would even before I did!  It only took a couple of minutes and my machine was still threaded with the right thread.  If it was super hard, I probably would have left it.  But now when I see this quilt I'll remember that we were celebrating my Mom's 82nd birthday and not her 81st :)

I also washed it and I am still not sure I like the washed, crinkly look!  It did soften the quilt up, but I still think I liked the look of it better before I washed it.  So, if you have to wash a quilt and do not like the crinkly look - what can you do?  Can anyone help me?

Do I need to prewash fabrics?  I am a non-prewasher.  Maybe I should try that...

Hope you're having a great weekend :)

  1. I think it's the batting that shrinks up the most when washed. I am a none fabric washer too. I use Warm & Natural for my batting. An 80/20 batting would shrink up less, and of course a 100% poly would have no shrinkage. I prefer the crinkly look
