I just found this message board, when I was looking for some help.
I bought a bag of fabric scraps at a garage sale. There are squares and scrapes of material (looks like material left over from making quilts.)
I was going to join a quilt along. I made 5 9 patch squares. Only two came out 6 1/2 in. I know your suppose to wash and dry your material, you think she would have done that. Are you suppose to use steam when you press your seams. Could this be why some of my blocks shrunk?
Do you think I should wash all the material and dry it? There's some 3" squares in there, would It be safe to wash them.
The material is pretty, I hate to throw it out.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
