Quilt Care

A new handmade quilt, a labor of love, a prized possession. Here are a few tips on how you can extend the life of your new quilt.

We have found using a mild liquid detergent that is unscented and free of dyes, perfumes and fabric softeners work best. Fabric dyes, scents and softeners can damage fabric fibers and should not be used or used sparingly. And NEVER use bleach.

  • You may wash in the washing machine with cool water, never hot.
  • Add detergent according to machine instructions but never directly onto the quilt.    
  • To keep fabric colors bright, add half a cup of vinegar to the wash.
  • Wash on a gently, delicate, short cycle so the agitation is minimal.
  • We do not recommend extended rinse.
  • If the quilt is an everyday use quilt you can tumble dry on a regular cycle.
  • If the quilt is a wall or heirloom quilt we recommend air dry or lying flat to dry.
  • Avoid direct sunlight as this can fade the fabrics.

    After all the hours you have spent making your quilt be sure you learn how to care for your one-of-a-kind beauty. The less you wash a quilt, the longer it will last and they'll be around for years. But they need a little TLC once in a while.
