First and foremost pictures of my grand kids from Halloween!
Lyon Margaret was a Lion! (Please take note of the quilt on the chair!)
Austin was Spider Man! (and the quilt on the ottoman!)
Natalie was a Lady Bug!
Now on to Quilting!
I've been hearing a lot lately that people aren't considering their quilts done until they have been washed! I am one of those people that have quilts in every room of my house, I am known to use a quilt as a tablecloth as well as a covering for the chair living room chairs and the living room couch (as proven by the pictures above!)! Some people think I'm crazy but I love quilts, I love looking at them, feeling them and being surrounded by them. Well this washing of quilts got me thinking about how much I love the feel of those quilts that have been washed again and again so I just HAD to give one of my newer quilts a wash! Remember this quilt? It's a 1600 that I made and quilted this past summer, it's been at one of our local quilt shops for the last few months and I recently pick it up.
Picture before I washed it.
This picture shows it better (I know time to take a photo class!)
It is wonderfully puckery (is that a word?).
It's soft and cuddly and I am absolutely in LOVE with it!
I managed to get it washed and dried just in time, Natalie and Austin are on their way to my house!
I think we are going to have to put this quilt on the floor and have a tea party and a build a Lincoln Log House!
So in conclusion I think I have to start agreeing with what I'm hearing! A quilt just may not be completely done until it's washed! I've just thrown my all white quilt in the washer! I'll show you how it comes out tomorrow!!
