Don't get me started on raveling! I am making a quilt for my granddaughter that uses 3 fabrics. Two are from Walmart; one is from the LQS. I bought the 2 from WM on sale for about $2/yard, paid $10+/yard for the LQS fabric. Guess which one ravels to the point of being almost useless?
Yup. The pricey one. I am now thinning some elmers glue and coating the cut edges of the pricey fabric so that I an use it without it raveling. (I know there are products that can be used to lessen fraying, but I have allergies that are irritated by any spray products and scents. Using elmers washable glue is tedious, but doesn't make me feel sick, so that's what I use.)
