So, I'm still going on about washing quilts! I'm just so paranoid that I will give a quilt away or sell it and the new owners have a bad surprise in the first wash.
So after washing my first baby-quilt last fall and figuring out that washing on hot doesn't seem to do harm in terms of shrinkage, I clenched my eyes shut and took the plunge - or rather, the quilts did. I also decided that young parents are not going to wash quilts separately with all the washing they have to do, so I threw all of my baby quilts in the wash together - I know DARING! I trusted that my pre-washing habit would prevent any dyes from running!
They came out just fine and are now neatly lined up on the rack to dry... Now at least I know that they won't be doll-quilts when their new owner washes them the first time!
