I followed the same procedure as I did for the sample.  I fulled it a tiny bit more so it was both a tiny bit narrower and shorter than predicted.

Final Width:  6”
Final Length: 65”

I let it dry and then steamed it with lots and lots of hot steam.  Never touched the iron to the fabric.  I simply used my hand to gently press at the just steamed areas.  It is lovely.

Will trim the fringes and get a picture up next week.  I want to learn how to use the delay timer on my camera.
