I am finishing up a quilt for an aunt who has lost her husband and mother within a few months. It's probably my best work to date, I'm really proud of it.
Question: should I wash it before sending it off to her?
I usually like to leave a new quilt unwashed for a little while -- you can see the quilting better, etc. -- but I love how soft and crinkly it gets after washing, and this one is all about emotional comfort.
Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
