    Love it! Very cute! That pattern could be used as a baby quilt also!

    I agree, however some fabrics do better than others.

    Oh my that is a cute quilt!! Did you use a pattern for it? I love the idea of the prairie points for the border. I think they will wash fine, I don't know that they will be crisp per-say, but I don't think they will get bent out of shape because of the way the fabric is folded.

    Cheers!

    love it!! I remember 30 years ago when I worked at a farmer's market, a 'little old lady' put prairie points on aprons, runners, about everything. I've made them a couple times, too.

    What's the pattern name, I really like it.
    Thanks a bunch! I'm pretty tickled with it. It takes me sooo long to finish anything. The quilt is called Chain Link & is from the book Link to the 30's by Kay Connors and Karen Earlywine.

    Thanks to everyone for your kind comments. I'm gonna go ahead & wash it & see what happens. Don't know if I am up for ironing points, but we'll see.

    Stunning!!! I see someone else likes 30s fabrics!!! I don,t see a problem with your prairie points with the way the fabric is folded and stitched!! Perhaps a light touch with an iron just on the tips should restore them! It will still look fabulous!!!! Definitely on the 'To do' list!!
