can't get enough of that crinkly thing

I just love how my quilts crinkle up in the wash. The texture is always a surprise and it completely transforms a flat surface to one that is alive with texture. I admit, sometimes it is like Russian roulette and I have to delegate the piece to the pile for pillow forms and dog beds. But when it works it is such a joy.

Here is a detail of the piece I have been working on called Strangers Among Us, post crinkle. Almost done with this one.
