I was feeling so good about this material; I had purchased from thrift store for $3, and got 6 yards of material.
I wanted to use it for backing for a crib quilt. I pulled the thread on one end and just couldn't get it to lay flat; so pulled the threads from the other end thinking it would correct itself. NO, No NO. By ths time I'm getting frustrated with my purchase, so cut off the selvages on both sides by tearing. Well got the fabric to lay flat finally; but the width grain is still off! Go figure! I've never ran into this type of problem before and I've been sewing since I was 9 (learned in 4-H, and my mother, of course). If I cut it straight across, will it wear goofy?
