Help, folks....I have a problem. Was trying to get a quilt quickly put together for a friend in ICU. Purchased some nice tea stain colored muslin for the background of the applique blocks I'm making.
Ironed with a dry hot, then sprayed water and ironed it wet with hot iron, and did at least 2 layers of Niagara spray starch. Cut out the blocks.
Somehow the muslin just doesn't want to lose those creases!
What do I do? Just give up and try another layer of spray starch and hot iron? Is there something else I should be doing? This is my first major project using muslin. The stuff is not super thick. It is 100% cotton. It does NOT have a permanent press type finish on it.
I'm planning to meander quilt after I get the applique blocks assembled and stripped, but I wasn't planning to heavy quilt to try to hide the creases.
So far all I can figure to do is just try to place the applique items over the creases, and give up.
Any other ideas????
