I used the new lap quilt last night at the drive-in while watching Monsters Vs. Aliens. Before it got dark enough for the movie to start I noticed some seams that came loose when I washed the quilt. I had only used a scant 1/4 inch seam allowance in an effort to make my strip of pieced blocks as wide as possible.
I spent some time this morning making repairs and adding some additional machine quilting. I am going to wash it again on the gentle cycle. I want to be able to give it away and I cannot do that if it is falling apart at the seams already!
