Thank you for this video, I don't wash my fabric now I know thanks.
I truly appreciate the info you shared. I usually cut small square samples of fabric, and individually place them in small white plastic bowls of hot water, then swish the fabric in the bowl maybe twenty minutes later to see if it bleeds or not. But, I never thought to dampen a white cotton cloth and rub the colored fabric to test for color fast. Thanks for that tip. By the way, the historical quilt top you worked on is beautiful. I also like what I saw on your shelf. Wish I could take a look around your place to see all you've done :-) Continue to enjoy all your quilting endeavors.
Very informative. I so admire quilters, they must have a great deal of patience. I do sew quit a bit and make soft sculpture dolls but have never been driven to try quilting. Be very proud of the quilt that you finished, it is actually a piece of history that was made across time and by so many different hands. That is what makes it so unique. I love it. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and the story of the quilt.
