from: Marilyn Pollock Johnston: “Here is my Cathedral Window quilt. It is all done by hand. I felt it was dirty from handing while sewing for over a year so I washed it. It is made of vintage muslin so it crinkled and wrinkled from washing. I wanted to iron it but my hubby said I should leave it. I took it with me to my quilt group and my fellow quilters agreed it should not be ironed as the crinkling added to the vintge look. I entered it in the county fair and was disppointed to get a white ribbon on it. I could hardly wait to see the judges written comments to see what I had done wrong. I picked it up from the fair today. The comment on the back of the tag read ” Very nice Vintage(underlined) cathedral window piece. Thanks for exhibiting it” Lol guess I made it a litttle bit too vintage.”
