I am getting ready to start my second DGD's 'big girl quilt'. DD picked out the Baby Geniuses Speak Up line of fabric. I had to order it from the US (thank goodness while DH was working in Chicago, so he could be my fabric mule and I did not have to pay the outrageous postage to Canada--but that's another story) Sooooo......I am very disappointed with the quality of the fabric. It is THIN!!! and I KNOW it will shrink like crazy so will absolutely pre-wash and dryer dry.
I am wondering if I could put a layer of pre-washed muslin behind each block, to give them some weight and stability. Has anyone done anything like this and is there anything I should watch out for, take into consideration, or is this just a bad idea completely??
Any other suggestions would also be greatly appreciated. BTW I am still undecided about the block design. Guess I should get cracking on that too.
