1. Bandanas shrink a lot.
2. Bandanas shrink differently in different directions.
Those are my two items of wisdom. If I do this type of quilt again, I will prewash the bandanas before I sew them together. I didn't do that this time because I was excited to see how it came together and couldn't wait for the wash. As you can see in the picture, the edges are not real even.
I have started quilting using a simple checkerboard style. I am starting from the middle and will work my way out. I am using dark purple thread. I looks nice so far.
For the binding, I bought solid purple bandanas that I will cut into strips and fashion into a binding. I did prewash them.
