Halloween Doorknocker Continued


Halloween Doorknocker 1

I started embellishing this yesterday afternoon. Still have a way to go on it but I should have some time for it shortly.

I was asked about washing crazyquilts. I would say no to washing and no to dry cleaning. Many of the fabrics I use are dryclean only but many of the hand dyed threads I use are not dry cleanable nor are they washable.

The best way to clean a crazyquilt is to use your vacuum cleaner hose. Put a piece of cheesecloth or a nylon stocking over the end of the hose and secure with a rubberband. Don't drag the hose over your fabrics but rather, using the lift and move method and carefully work over small areas at a time. Since crazyquilts aren't utility pieces, they only thing you really have to worry about is dust and vacuuming them will take care of that.
