- I plan on pre-washing the blocks and all the quilting fabric (as you can see I have started to acquire John Deere fabric) as the embroidered blocks are a light cotton fabric. I am afraid this will shrink and potentially misshape the tractors. Is there anything I can do about that?
- I will need to do some quilting within the 18" block as the maximum stitching distance on batting I can find is 8 to 10" (and that is on the cotton I normally use). Any suggestions as to how I can quilt the embroidered blocks without messing up all the hard work she put into the embroidery?
- Any other cautions or advice for incorporating large embroidered blocks into a quilt?
Thanks so very much!!
