Today I'm washing one of the quilts I made. It was for the Man-Land exhibit at Sisters, summer of 2012, and I call it "Marvelette". Don't ask me why. I have no idea. Sorry I don't have a better picture of it, but I'll try to get one soon.
After Sisters, the quilt was in a pile with some musty old quilts. When I pulled it out recently, it had some fold lines and was musty. I didn't prewash any of the fabrics, and can't remember if I ever washed it- maybe, maybe not. Should I be nervous? If it withstands the wash, a delicate cycle, cold wash with a scant amount of mild soap and a delicate, low-heat drying cycle, I'll be happy. I like the idea of making a washable quilt. My wool quilt is definitely not washable.
