Thanks, Barb! I think 1.8 was my stitch length.

The last time I used homespuns was a Christmas wall hanging and I promised myself - no more homespuns! I love them - the colors, plaids but man they just can't hold it together and seem to n stretch and stretch. So I'm just not going to them for quilts.

I use it for rag quilts. Laundry mat washed and then dried there. Love it for rag quilts.

I have made two quilts with homespuns, washed many times, with no problems so far. Of course, my sons are the caregivers of the quilts. No special treatment from men. One is on a couch, the other is thrown in the truck, used for hunting trips, washed and thrown back on couch. Did not think of seams coming apart when making, used 1/4" seams. Maybe because it has a muslin as part of seam? I have posted pics of both quilts, but not sure how to input them here. They are pics on phone.
