When I get a quilt back from the LAQ my favorite thing to do is wash it and watch it shrivel up. I love using the cotton batting and getting the old fashioned look of a wrinkled up quilt.

Just wondering if I'm nuts!

no, you're not nuts. According to my dh, we're all nuts. Cutting 1 big piece of fabric into small pieces, then sewing them back together.LOL

That's exactly what my hubby said when I first got into quilting. He knows better now. LOL
I like to do the same thing with my quilts. I like them washed!

My Hubby said the same thing...
How can you cut up this nice fabric....
Until he saw it put together with other nice fabric and then he said, "Oh, I get it"
Now he says, I can't believe this goes with that!
And he is color blind!

Yeah, I guess it does sound a little silly to cut it up and sew it back together, but oh what beautiful quilts come from those little pieces of fabrics!

I like the 'shrink' look too!

A friend's husband says that too.... "why cut up perfectly good material and sew it back together".

She replies "why do you cut up pieces of wood and put them back together".

I just love the look of the rag quit I made...it looks so warm and comfy and cozy after a good wash (have yet to finish a full-size but getting there)
