Like many grown kids, ours came to visit last weekend toting her laundry, including this spiderweb quilt I made a couple years ago.
She's trying to preserve this quilt because the previous one had so much laundering and drying the border ended up shredded (crummy fabric, methinks).
"Will it dry outside?" she asked. "Sure," Tom said. "It'll freeze dry."
So she draped it over the deck railing for overnight.
It was just a 10 percent chance of snow, which around here usually means it ain't gonna happen, but sure enough, it did. And so the quilt had a quick tumble on low temperature anyway and is none the worse for wear.
