First Sampler Quilt Using a Walking Foot
I believe that this is one of the first sampler quilts that I made to practice using my walking foot. It was supposed to be a cuddle quilt for pre-mature babies, however it turned out incredibly stiff. Even my brother's dog Boots wasn't interested in lying down on it!

- I'm not really sure why the quilt was so stiff, but now if I'm going to use flannel, I usually only use it for either the front or the back. I know that I made another one what turned out fine - but I'm not sure what I did, since it was donated a long time ago.
I will be linking up to several linking parties. It seems to be a little quiet out there...I suspect that the heat this year is slowing everyone down.

maybe if you wash it several more times it will soften up - it really doesn't look stiff - maybe it was different batting then you normally use - did you use a spray adhesive for basting - I did once and used too much and the quilt is still stiff even though it has been washed a lot and I used it for a picnic table cloth nowReplyDelete
Hi Karen, thanks for the advice. I will put it in the laundry room and wash it several times. It would be great if it was usable! Thanks for linking up :-)Delete
Interesting that it turned out stiff, as it certainly isn't quilted to death. Wash, wash, wash.ReplyDelete
Thanks Susan - it's in the laundry room, ready for the next load and the ones after that!Delete
I hope you can get it softened to usable, it's a pretty little thing.ReplyDelete
Thanks Dione. I've washed it a couple of times and it is softening up. Maybe my Chevy will want to sleep on it!Delete
