Trying to get the quilt blocked by myself and it's not going to work. I washed it last night (hand wash setting and 2 heavy duty spin cycles) and it lost 2" in all directions. I got foam board insulation and following the directions from Karen McTavish's CD. I just can't do it alone and be able to keep the tape on one side while the other is stretched out to the correct size and pinned. My daughter is coming over this weekend so she will be roped into helping me.
My bedroom is the only room big enough to lay it out and that I can keep the cat out.
