I'm just finishing the binding on a king size quilt for my parents that I have been working off-and-on since August 2011. It has taken me hundreds of hours. I want to wash it to remove chalk/pencil lines and to give it a more antique look. It contains autumn colours so some tan and beige but also some chocolate browns and cranberries. I don't want it to run. How should I wash it before I give it to them? Dryer? Many thanks in advance for your comments. I want to deliver it to them Sunday January 27th so I have to wash it today if I am going to.
Thanks again for your guidance,
