A Finished Quilt, and laundry anxiety
I decided to tag this quilt as both a throw and a table covering after seeing how great it looked on our patio table
I had my usual attack of Acute Laundry Anxiety when I put it in the washing machine today. I always wash and dry quilts that I'm going to sell or give away. And I ALWAYS fear that when I open the door of the washing machine all that will remain is a tattered, tragic pile of rags and threads. However, it's completely irrational; as you can see, it's fine after being washed and dried. In fact, like most quilts, it looks even better after being washed. Since I don't usually prewash my fabrics or batting, I like the tiny bit of puckering that happens after the first wash.
