    I am machine quilting a wall hanging with Gutermann's invisible thread.

    Can I machine wash the quilt, afterwards? What temp and cycle?

    Can I iron it? What setting?

    I can't find anything on the internet. Thanks!

    I've never used Gutermans. I use Prym-Dritz from Quilt in a Day. I've ironed over it with no problems. I wash all my quilts on cold and dry in a warm dryer. No problems with that either.

    I don't know about ironing, but the thread washes fine in the washer. You probably need a low setting on the dryer. I would be real careful ironing it so it doesn't melt. Just be aware that whatever you're washing may shrink.

    We would love to see what you're making! :thumbup:

    I actually like washing my quilts after quilting, instead of before. I like the shrunken look. LOL!

    I don't actually iron the quilt but I sometimes run a quick iron around my binding, I find it makes it quicker/neater for me, when I sew it down. I will just be extra careful and do it on a lower setting. And I will dry on a low setting.

    Here is the wall hanging, prior to sandwich and quilting. I'll post it when I'm done.

    Thanks for your help!

    WOW, that's beautiful! I love that you used wood grain for the cross and put blue all around it. Just beautiful! :thumbup:

    Oh and you can't see it in the pictures but the outer blocks and border shimmer in gold.

    I will post finished pictures at some point.
