Your quilts. Textured after a tumble in the dryer or ironed smooth?
For me it depends on the quilt. The Scrap Jar Stars has yet to be laundered because I like the smooth lines of it. Not sure how it will react once I wash and dry it. I guess it’s because the quilting is fairly wide spaced, so I am afraid washing it will result in an uneven crinkling. Is that a thing? What do you think, should I or not?
Some of my older pieces I have washed and then ironed to even out. They are not super smooth, but not as crinkled as the ones I don’t iron. But they are a lot softer and drapier, so maybe it depends on the desired effect.
My recent finish, Rhubarb Crisp I prefer textured. I washed and dried it and it’s nicely rumpled. But with all the quilting it isn’t quite drapey! But that’s ok, it’s only job is to lay on the table and soften the decor. And I love the colors so much I had a hard time not ordering this charm pack!!
So, which do you prefer?
