  • Re: Wash fabric before making quilt?

    Thanks, Gini, for sharing information. I had not heard about the spraying the fabric with chemicals and pesticides; however, it does make sense that it needs to be done. I want to make a baby quilt, so I will wash the fabric (maybe twice) before making the quilt; and then I plan to wash the quilt before giving it to the baby's Mom and Dad to make

    Thank you for your response, Sue. It appears that making up my own mind is the way to go. And, since I am new to this, I think I will start with potholders and ploace mats, wash my fabric the first time and then make another without washing to see if there is any difference in the feel of the finished product, and if there is any difference in the sewing

    Thank you, Melissa. I have discovered that doing it "my way" is the best method for quilting. I believe that quilters are the most happy people in the world for that very reason.

  • Wash fabric before making quilt?

    I am a new quilter (have not been at it very long) and have read and heard different thoughts on prewashing fabric before making a quilt. Any opinions/advice from veteran quilters would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
