Hi Guys,

I'm new to quilt making. I made a baby quilt and I quilted it with stitching in the ditch. I washed it, and now I think that it needs more quilting. Can I still add some free motion quilting to it even though it's been washed? Should I starch and iron it first? I want it to have a crinkled vintage look.

Thank you!
Jill

I think your only concern would be that if it's been washed (so the sizing is out of the fabric), it would be more prone to having a little pucker here and there if the fabric doesn't lay flat.

I guess it depends on how puffy the quilt is now after its trip through the washer/dryer.

Yes you can. Starch and iron if you wish to do so.

Wash it again before giving it to the parents.

Update:

It worked beautifully! I ironed it and starched it first, and then I added the FMQ and I washed it again. It looks so much better now!

Thanks guys!
