Temporarily at least. I wanted to show a U3A student that quilts can be tied so retrieved this from the back of my daughter's sofa (I had to provide a substitute in the meantime!). It was made from leftovers from a larger quilt and I just kept going till they were all used up. As well machine quilted it's sandwiched with buttons and Shetland wool ties which felted once the quilt had a hot machine wash. I have washed and ironed it again.
