    It's probably psychological, but a krinkled quilt looks softer to me and more wrap-around cuddly. I like krinkled for quilts that are going to be actually used.

    to me the 'krinkled look' is a basic characteristic of a quilt. if it does not soften up and look (krinkled) it might as well be a wall hanging that does not get washed.washing the quilt and getting that look just gives it a loved look ;)

    I like for mine to get it over a period of time, but not right away. I washed one that I will be giving to Jim's brother (to get off the cat hair and chalk) but only used cool water.

    I always wash mine when I'm done...it's my final step. I feel it does take away a little bit of the stiffness from the starch etc. I too love the krinkled look.

    I don't think it matters what I do, my quilts are gonna get the crinkled look because I'm too lazy to do any special washing and drying on them. I have a front load so the gentle cycle is really gentle, but I'm gonna throw everything I wash in the dryer to at least partially dry. So my quilts are destined for the crinkled look like it or not. :)

    In all honesty though, when I finish a quilt I'm always hesitant to wash it because I think I'm not going to like it as well after it becomes crinkled. Thus far I've liked each one even more after they've been washed. But I do the same worrying over it everytime still. :)

    I love that krinkled look, but it is up to each person
