Flannels definitely. I was given a whole bolt of red flannel and didn't prwash, made a little baby quilt sent out to my brother for his first grandson. When they washed it it bled all over everything. and kept on doing it. So flannels I wash. Other stuff depends on the look I am going for.

It depends on the fabrics if I pre-wash or not , I usually dont unless
i,m afraid the color might bleed like a red cotton or flannel . Then i will wash it . I really think that it is a matter of preferenc

Whar are your thoughts on pre-wash or not washing fabric for your quilts? Me personally I don't pre-wash as I like the effect you get if there is any shrinkage , it's got that antique look puffy and definition of the quilting on the top. Your thoughts?

Hi Susan ! Thanks for the tips. Will try to stuff some batting through the small hole DH made before leaving. Will definitely have to take this wall apart and put proper insulation in there. Don't want to deal with this every time it gets very cold. Have a great day ! Ginette

Hi Ginette;
The temperature here is about the same as your area this morning , but I bet it feels colder to you . I know I,ll be glad to see this winter over , It seems like it has been 6 months since Christmas

Oh Ginette, I know that sometimes having no snow and it being so cold can seem even colder especially down there. When my daughter was in Japan, she said she felt the cold so much more there than she ever did here. I too am finding it colder this year than ever before. Must be age LOL

Good morning from down south !
It's -10C here this morning in Georgia and this Canadian girl is freezing. I look out the window and there is a coat of ice on the small lake across the street. Brrr!!! I know - there is no snow but, for the second time this year, we are dealing with a problem we never had in Canada. A frozen water pipe in our downstairs powder room - no insulation in the walls. Oops ! Have they forgotten? DH had to leave at 6am for a meeting in Alabama and I am left here, hoping for the best. Plugged a small electric heater in there - it feels like a sauna, but that pipe is still frozen. Oh well, there is hope, the sun has come up and it's supposed to be 4C this afternoon - so it should thaw sooner or later.
Hope it's not too cold in your part of the country and that you all have a happy quilting day! Ginette

Hello everyone,
I'm originally from Victoria, BC but have lived in Cold Lake, Alberta for 24 years although for the last 4 my husband and I travel back and forth between Cold Lake and our "retirement home" acreage outside Rocky Mountain House. So I get to quilt both on the east and west of Alberta...and hand quilt on the 5 1/2 hour drive each way. Our granddaughter lives near Red Deer so we also get to spend lots of time with her and our son and d-i-l. Love all kinds and styles of quilting and enjoy new techniques. First time I've joined a group and I'm looking forward to learning new things and meeting other Canadian quilters.

Hi Ladies
I'm originally from BC born on the island and raised in Williams Lake. I have been living in south eastern ontario since dec 2002. I started quilting in sept 04 and haven't looked back. Its so extremely addictive, but one heck of a good way to meet nice people and have fun.
