I just finished my first rag quilt today. I washed it and put it in the dryer, as I've heard is necessary to get the seams to rag.
The good news is the seams look wonderful... just the way I would have expected.
The bad news is there is a significant amount of lint on the flannel (flat part of the quilt). It is sticking to the flannel, and so far has not come off in the dryer (well, a lot came off in the dryer, but there's still a lot left on the quilt). They also don't shake off very well.
Has anyone had this happen and know how to get the lint off the quilt without having to pick off every piece? This would take forever!
