I finally got the binding all finished and put the label on the back. Then it got a gentle wash with some biodegradable soap. I like Soak, its a rinse free biodegradable soap with nice scents to choose from. This way you don't have to worry about running it through a rinse cycle and wondering if all the soap got rinsed out.
I put some tables out in the garage so it was out of the sunlight but would dry quickly in the extreme summer heat! I could not believe how quick it dried.
Around the edge of the quilt label I put all the first names of the Prestin siblings. It is the descendants of these siblings that make up our family reunion. I should have used a darker color of thread for the names. I also added my web address under the June 2012, but it does not show up well. I'm excited to see who will win it!
