Too Bad, How Sad

Well, lesson learned.  I washed one block and put it in the dryer on low.  The linen shrunk 3/4". Which I wouldn't mind, but the cotton fabric did not.

Notice all the puckering in the feather on the left.  I knew better, but got carried away in the moment.

Now I will be taking apart all my feathers.....arg!


  1. popping over from the Lily's quilts blog meet up.
    Good job I popped over. I made some tablemats at xmas from linen and cotton. Looks like I'm going to have to be careful how I wash them. At least I now know for next time to pre wash.
    Your feathers look fab though

  2. So sorry Sis, what a bummer but smart job testing it now

  3. I've landed here via Lily's Quilts. That's a painful lesson to learn - poor you.
