Here is the quilt I made for my husband. He wanted black and white quares and black border and he wanted it tied. This is the first quilt I have made and completed.


My question is that I washed it and cannot get the wrinkles out . I tried ironing it and it just wrinkled worse. any suggestions please?

Could your batting have wrinkled in the wash? Were you able to press the top smooth before washing? What kind of batting did you use? Need more info to figure it out.

It's probably the type of batting you used. I wouldn't worry about it. You have made a very nice quilt, I love the black and white.

I personally think the wrinkles give the quilt character. Just my opinion. By the way, you did a great job!
