too? I laundered a finished quilt today. As I closed the washing machine lid I held my breath. I always have the nagging worry that once the cycle is complete and I lift that lid again there will be nothing remaining of the quilt other then a tangled mass of thread and shreds of fabric.
I wash everything! I launder my fabric when I bring it home. My stash has clipped corners and is neatly folded on the shelves in our studio. From start to finish it takes me a long while to make a quilt. Regardless of size or purpose. The project goes with me wherever I go. So, by the end, it REALLY does need to be laundered. And, I don’t know about you, but I like the soft, puckery look and feel of a washed quilt.
Today’s quilt did not unravel in the washing machine! Thankfully, I’ve never had that happen (*knock wood*). I still can’t help but hold my breath though.
