A Washed Quilt = So Cuddly!


After a quilt has been quilted and the binding put into place, I think it just BEGS to be tossed into the washer and dryer, don’t you?

There is nothing like a good wash and dry to add in those adorable puckers and softness that makes a quilt feel right.


This little crib quilt is for a baby girl and was designed to match her nursery. The big blocks have free-hand meandering quilted in place to look like “little girl scribbled flowers.”  Then over the rest of the quilt, a meandering stitch with the same flowers (only smaller), squiggles and little leaves helps fill it in and add those precious puckers.EmmasQuilt3


What a great place to play and explore?!?

  1. I'm with Jean; I love the look of washed and dried quilts. I think it really improves them. All the quilts that my quilting group, the Blanketeers, make MUST be machine washed and dried before we donate them. It was a Project Linus requirement that we have internalized so much we don't even think about it anymore. After all, who wants to give away a quilt that might be damaged by normal laundering? Your quilt is just lovely! She's a lucky little girl to be getting such a pretty quilt. 8)

    All the best,


  2. Caron – the quilt is adorable – I love the colors and the quilting is perfect for it. I also wash all of my quilts – sometimes before I bind them (I always have stay stitching around the edges) and again after they are bound if the kitties have been on and under them during the binding process.
