    I would never do that, but I'll wait and see how others respond. I especially wouldn't use spray starch on it.

    I don't really know how you can make it look like a picture since you quilted it, which gives it dimension.
    I definitely wouldn't starch it but I don't have any other ideas, sorry!!!

    Spray starch will give the bugs a chance to eat your quilt--learned that the HARD way!

    I agree, no starch.
    But I *have* pressed a quilt that I wanted to have lie flat against the wall.

    I press everything when I'm finished with it, but I don't press down hard on the iron.
