Hi......I am a fairly new quilter and am making potholders. First I made a few with just one layer of Insulbrite... minimal quilting.... and when I washed them they came out fine. But after reading what gals/guys say to do which is to use one layer of Insulbite and one layer of a cotton batting.......I tested one out and when I washed it the batting bunched up a lot. So I started quilting quite a bit on another one but it still washes rather bunchy and it is much thicker than any potholder I ever owned before quilting.
Also, have a question about quilting things...this could just me be being nutty. The potholders I am working on have cute dog faces on them. Now that I have to quilt a lot on them I am not happy that I had to sew over the faces and now they don't look so cute with lines running throught the faces...ha.
Maybe I am being too critical and no one will notice?
