While doing the tour of the online quilting community, I kept hearing about the crinking that happens when you wash a quilt. The consensus seemed to be that it was good but I loved the way my quilts looked pre-wash and wasn't sure that I'd agree.
To help other new quilters who aren't sure what to expect, I thought I'd give you a before and after comparison of my A First Lesson in Colour baby quilt.
|With this particular quilt, the crinkling ended up softening the overall appearance of the bright high contrast colours and geometric construction.|
|It really changes the texture of the quilt but I'm starting to fall for the crinkly finish.|
