In quilting there is only one word that is equal to a four letter word except it has 7 letters … TENSION! Yes, tension is the one problem that all quilters will encounter at some time in their quilting career. However, with careful and methodical adjustments you can have perfect balance. Here are our tips:
To hand-wash, fill a very clean and deep, laundry sink or bathtub with cold water. Use a liquid detergent that is gentle and free of dyes and perfumes. I like to use Orvus Soap, a paste found in feed stores and used for washing livestock. You may add 1/2 cup vinegar to the rise water to both brighten colors, remove odors and soften the quilt. - quiltville.blogsp...
