How To Clean A Bed Quilt

Hey all,

We’re going to take a little break from the video this week, but still wanted to send out a quick email with some information…

We thought that we all needed a little Spring reinforcement (we KNOW that it will get here soon!!!) so this week for the Treat Yourself Sale, we wanted to treat you all to a great deal on a couple of Spring Kits:

Summertime Wishes is a beautiful topper that the original pattern was made for Christmas, but we did it up in fresh new colors and it is so pretty! Really soft floral and lots of colors to make it fit most decors.
Charming Panels Wall Quilt (what a weird name!) is also loaded with blooming colors. The jewel tones on this wall quilt are so rich and wonderful.

Both of these projects are super simple and can be whipped up in no time and adorn either your table or your wall with some fresh new color. These kits are on sale this week (until April 25), and supplies are limited.

We also have a new kit that we wanted to introduce this week and it fits right in with our theme of Waitin’ on Spring… Spring into Color. This is a new one from Maywood Studios and the fabrics look so stained glass-ish. You can click here for more information on this kit.

We have a little tip that we wanted to also pass on to you today. It’s not a large enough topic for Tidbits, but is kind of important – how to clean bed quilts! We’ve seen so many quilts pass through our doors that literally had the stuffing loved out of them and they weren’t old quilts. If you wash your quilts frequently, they will wear just like your clothes do – not well. We were once told that you want to treat your quilts like you do your skin. Wash in warm-cool water with a gentle soap. If the quilt only needs refreshing (there aren’t spills that need caring for) then skip the soap altogether. When you dry them, toss the quilt in the dryer for 10-15 minutes max. and then take it out and drape it over something to finish drying. In good weather, you can dry it outside, but remember to toss a sheet over it to prevent birds from doing their biz on it. If you take care of your quilts, they will last many years, even if you use them daily. Just don’t cook them in a dryer. This is also good information to pass on to someone you are gifting a quilt to if they don’t know any better.

We’ll be back online with you next week with more ‘Bits of this and that to share.

PS – Coming soon…

Lakeside is a new kit that we will have available soon. It is made from absolutely gorgeous green and blue batiks. We’re sharing a picture of it and if you are interested, let us know. This will be a kit, not a BOM [Block of the Month]. It makes a great gift if you have a wedding this summer. Not hard – all squares and rectangles! We’ll have more information soon, so keep an eye out…
