I have never washed it. Without it being stitched down, I think it would pull apart in places.  Good question.

Does anyone wash their batting before using it? Just wondering. Thanks.

Thanks for sharing this. Next time I'm downtown DC, I'll have to see if some of these quilts are on display. The National History Museum just underwent a huge renovation, so I'm hoping that they included these items. Another wonderful quilt display is at he American Daughters of he Revolution (DAR) Museum that is a block down from the White House. It's a free museum and has a wonderful collection. I highly recommend going there if you are ever in Washington DC.

Thank you for the link.  It is interesting to hear the stories of such old quilts, and to find out that the quilters of that time also had UFO's that took years to finish!

Amazing to see some of the quilts that were made in the 1700's and later. I can't imagine all the work that went into making those quilts. They are fabulous. Thanks for posting this link.
