Then I decided to put my quilt, which I finished stitching yesterday evening, into the cloque bath. This is always a little nerve wracking when you’ve spent a lot of time assembling and stiching a piece. I’ve had one spectacular disaster with a large wool piece which was basically destroyed by the caustic – it went hard and brittle. However this time all seems to be well – it’s drying on our trampoline at the moment after neutralizing and washing.
The quilt was 86 x 108cms and after shrinking ended up 66 x 83cms. The next thing is deciding whether it’s finished and putting a hanging sleeve on.
I wish now I’d committed to the organized photography session this weekend but I really didn’t think I’d get it done on time.
