Maybe I am missing something really obvious. Do you ever iron a completed and washed quilt????
I am putting together my very-first-to-be-quilted sandwich using high loft poly. It was nicely puffy because I got out the wrinkles by fluffing it per suggestions on the board in dryer low with damp hand towel.
So - being nervous about quilting it - I got the idea to put a piece of cotton cloth over a test piece and iron it down a little. WHOAA! It fused right up to itself!
You can see it is fuzzy on one side and fused into a sheet on the other.
If this quilt got ironed, it would get flat and stiff.
I'm switching to low-loft 80-20 which seems much more docile and got its wrinkles out when I steamed it in the shower. I tried ironing it and it behaved well.
But what about ironing? And while I'm on the subject, what about permanent press cotton?
You all have been great help with all your posts and I appreciate your assistance.
