a lineman needed

just before the log cabin quilt is finished i thought, i will just wash it by hand to check the colours don't run.
yes,  i didn't test any of the fabrics in october.  i was learning to quilt and heard about washing the fabric first (some people do this) after i had begun. and i didn't learn the 'how to's' in any order. when i held a piece (a row) up to the sunlight just now they looked like stained glass windows. so now it's dripping on the line. in the sun.
and i am looking at this big quilt top, and wondering if it will shrink or be the same.
p.s. is there a tutorial for tie-ing off machine threads?



  1. This is a good video on how to do it :)
