What was I thinking? I decided to make a Christmas quilt. Collecting
Christmas was big fun and not too pricey since lots of it is on sale now.
Mr. Esther politely says it sure is colorful. Yes, it is that. I have
everything from carols, nativity scenes, snowmen and even 3 wisemen. ( no
firetrucks but it's a thought).
But - two of the prints are right shabby. The Grinch and the original
Rudolph (not the one who knows rain, dear) are on fabrics that are quite
thin. No delusions here about the crib quilts lasting very long and they
are to be used and worn but I would really like to be able to pass this
queensize quilt down at least one generation.
Is there any way I can give the fragile fabrics some added strength? I
just can Not bring myself to use a glue or fusible; their reliability and
biodegrade proclivity (whew! how'd you like that?) cause me great concern.
