I so enjoy reading everything I can on here. The variety and sincerity of answers amaze me. The biggest relief I get is that no one seems to have THE ANSWER.
Prewash? Yes, definately. No, never. Depends.
Fleece backing? Of course, do it all the time. No way, no how!
Quilting? Hand, of course. Machine fancy. Machine plain. Tie the thing!
What a relief that is! Personally I look for the answer that affirms what I wanted to do anyway and deem it the RIGHT answer! :lol:
I've decided that we are all on a journey with our quilts. Some of us are in different stages of the journey; others are traveling different roads; some travel solo; some travel in groups - but, we are all headed the same place. A place that allows our creativity to flourish, our families to be warmed, and our love to show. How cool is that?
