This is quilting and WASHING MACHINE related. I just got a new front load washing machine (Maytag) and as I loaded it the other day I realized there isn't a lint filter to empty. What am I to do when I wash a rag quilt or a chenille project for the first time. With all the thread that comes off I'm afraid it will clog my drain. The drainage hose is in a stand pipe so I don't really have access to put one of those little lint bags on it.
Any suggestions? Or perhaps there is someone out there who has a front load washer without a lint trap and who also makes rag quilts.
