      I finished binding this morning, now it’s off to the washing machine to see what this is really going to do. I’m excited! Oh, when I say “washing” machine, what I’m really going to do is put it in a tub of water, allow it to gently soak, drain the water, spin it out, fill the tub with rinse water, soak, drain the water, spin and tumble in the dryer for a few minutes, then line dry. I don’t want you thinking you can just treat an old quilt like this like a pair of dirty jeans. Oh no!!

    Doesn’t it remind you a little of the quilts of Gee’s Bend? There is no real pattern, just fabric assembled in about 6″ rows, using whatever width and length necessary to complete a row.
