    wash and dry the quilt you just finished; before you give it to the recipient?

    I do. Just incase for some reason a seam comes apart or there's color issues. (I learned that from experience...ouch! haha)

    Yes, I wash all quilts before giving them to the recipients. I like the look of a washed quilt, you know how it looks and feels so soft.

    As soon as I put that last stitch in the binding, mine go in the washer. Then in the dryer on low!

    definitely into the washer.

    if it's for a child, it goes into warm water and the dryer, too - on high.

    and adult's quilt gets a cold bath then either hung or dryer, depending on size, how it's intended to be used, or my mood that day. (a very scientific system. :lol: )

    If you have used any type of starch product, it's a must to wash. Silverfish love these products, so you have to get them out.

    I wash and dry which is a good thing since one of my seams came out after that and needed to be fixed. :x
