Pre-Washing Questions…

To Michelle,Should you or shouldn’t you Pre-Wash is a question that comes up all the time among quilters and people are typically passionate about their opinion. Generally, I do not pre-wash but earlier this year I decided to conduct a small experiment that you can read about here. I made two, identical mini quilts with the same fabrics. The fabric in one quilt was pre-washed and one was not. I share photos and outcomes of each step from the initial differences in the fabric after one set was pre-washed, to cutting, piecing, quilting and through the final washing. I don’t know if it will change your mind, but it was an interesting experiment so be sure to check it out.

    I don’t pre-wash, but perhaps I should re-think as I nearly had a heart attack this week when it seemed like a project I finished was seriously bleeding — thank heavens for color catchers!

    I don’t usually and like you prefer the look of unwashed fabric. I suppose if there is a good reason, I might.
