No problem. I need to go back and reread some of the directions. I was surprised when watching the show that Janet was using the double blanket stitch around the letter 'f'. I somehow thought it was only the single. So first three letters are only got a single blanket stitch. I can switch for the rest.

Check out Janet's Introduction instructions. She does recommend prewashing and she explains how she does it.

I normally pre-wash my fabric before starting to quilt, is this recommended and if it is pre-washed will I still have enough fabric to finish the entire quilt?
