After purchasing some color catchers I finally washed my king size quilt. When I put it back on the bed, the size was amazingly smaller! It shrunk by 4" both ways! When I made it I thought it was too large. Now it is just the right size. Does a denser quilt mean a warmer quilt?
BTW: My color catchers caught lots of red dye.
Sorry, the picture is dark. In real life the quilt looks brighter than it did before washing it.
