I made a rag quilt to give at a baby shower on Saturday. Just got back from washing and drying it at the laundromat.
Now it looks like a used blanket. I really don't know what to do. It's made from flannel - I tried to be very aware of using the correct side of the flannel (on the solids) but some of them look awful
The recipient is a girl that I've never met, my friend's DIL. Should I call my friend and explain that a raggy quilt has to be washed first to get the raggy look and apologize or should I go to Baby's R Us and buy something else.
I washed the blanket with clean towels - is that what went wrong? Should I have washed it alone?
I've made these quilts before - but the last time I washed three together - no towels - and they came out fine.
I just don't know what to do at this point.....
