i am making my very first quilt...ever. its a baby quilt .here's my question... can i use grosgrain ribbon as seam binding and to connect patchwork segments? if not why?
my grandmother said ok if i wash it first. but i don't see anybody doing this ...is there a reason?...all my fabrics are cotton.
the pattern i'm following has small 1" strips between the patchwork pieces. but the ribbon is the same size and seems "tougher"...i want them to be able to wash it when needed without it falling apart.
thank you for all your help and advice.
