I craft with care so you don't have to - care that is. Even so, there are a few simple things you can do to lengthen the life of your quilt.
- Avoid direct sunlight to keep colors vibrant
- Avoid moisture, store in a dry place - that doesn't mean hidden in a closet
- Avoid leaving your treasure home alone with curious pets
Your quilt will last longer if it's hand washed and line dried. Most quilts can however withstand repeated laundering - especially if the product was machine quilted. I recommend a cold machine wash on gentle and low dry heat. I prefer the fresh out the dryer warmth, but it can also be ironed if you like a smooth quilt.
