    It's possible also that she meant the older/antique paper-pieced quilts, some of which still have the paper inside them but are batted, backed, and bound.

    That is what I would think, too as well as the crazy quilts that were made with all kinds of different fabrics--many not washable. They were hung outside to "air out". Can you imagine trying to wash a quilt on a washboard or in the creek?
    I know!!
    I also can't imagine washing a quilt in a bathtub! Think how hard that is on the fabric and seams, trying to lift that thing/move it around when it's all wet, mercy! Give me my front loader any day, LOL :-D

    I agree with others. I have washed my PP quilts. Paper is removed before quilting, so it is the same as any other quilt.
