Star Crazy is done
As I posted a few days ago, I said I would share when I got done with the binding – I have finished it today!
Forgive all the wrinkles – I had just taken it out of the dryer and got busy taking photos. I probably did over kill on the quilting in the pieced area, once I got started I had to continue – part way through I had wished I hadn’t decided to do that. I have lost track of how many queen size quilts I have hand quilted now – this bed sure has seen a change of quilts over the years!
Is fabric shrinking more than it used to? I love the antique crinkly look so I always wash and dry my quilts – always unless it is a wall hanging that I might want a flat look to. It doesn’t seem like it used to shrink quite so much though – the top before quilting was 100 x 100 inches – now 95 x 95 inches. I’m glad I made it as large as I did.
