[QUOTE=bearisgray;8430418]Just wondering - if one wants a quilt to look "new" - as in no puckering - can one block it to get that "look"?

I’m no expert but I believe that the batting plays the biggest part, as does quilting; there is the “classic quilt look” rather crinkly and divine. This is achieved by a natural fiber such as cotton or wool or a combination. The less crinkled look is achieved by a poly or other man made fiber. At least this has been my experience in my quilts. I like both looks and each one has a place depending on the type of quilt and personal preferences. I’m sure someone with far more expertise and experience will be able to provide better feedback.
