to wash or not to wash
I have gotten eleven AMH feathers done. Enough for a baby size quilt (though my feathers are smaller than hers). I am considering making more, maybe a lap or twin size.
But then, I had a fearsome thought! I was reading AMH blog about the care of her new linen line. In it she mentioned how when washed, her linen shrink in length 1/4"-1". I used Essex Linen Natural for the background fabric in my feathers and I am concerned that it will shrink way more than the other cotton fabric. So now I am afraid to continue. Has anyone used Essex linen? What do you think?
