I bought a quilt kit to make a child's quilt approximately 60" X 45". In the kit was a panel & various shapes & sizes of corresponding fabric. I made the mistake of NOT washing the fabric first!
Anyway, while piecing, I noticed there was a variation of the type of fabric included. Some pieces were of a lower quality with lesser thread count. I am afraid of what it will look like (shrinkage) if I machine quilt then wash afterward. Plus I am now putting fray check on all the seams due to much raveling!
Can I wash the quilt top on a hand wash setting in the washer in hot water with Retayne for 20 minutes or a warm water with the shout color catcher for less time? Would you help me on this before I really make a BIG boo boo?
