I finished the quilting and the binding for Jungle Babies Three this morning. Then I washed and dried it, which gives it that old fashioned krinkly feel.
Question: Do you wash and dry your quilts before giving them away or selling them? I have washed and dried the last couple of quilts and have mixed feelings about it. I feel like the quilt loses its "newness" once its washed. But washing the quilt does have its pros. 1. It gives it that krinkly feel; 2. You can be sure that it launders well with no color runs, etc.
