This quilt was tied and loved for quite some time before it began to fall apart.  It’s stained, discolored, seams splitting, some fabric tears, but I started another rescue job on it.  First step was to start pressing

  1. Are you starching and pressing the quilt before you put it on the long arm? Or are you doing this after loading the quilt on the long arm? I am really impressed with your work!
