    I have 2 beige fat quarters I want to use next to my red blocks in my log cabin quilt and I can`t get the wrinkles out. I have only cut the red blocks and nothing has been washed. ( This is my first real quilt. ) Any ideas ? Thanks.

    Try putting a teaspoon of vinegar in a cupful of water. Put the mix in a spray bottle and spritz the fabric then iron.

    Or dunk in water and roll it in a towel and then iron it when it's still damp.

    I am going to try that since I don`t use our hard water in the flat iron.
