Do you still spend time prewashing your fabrics?
Those prewash days are over. Quality fabric has such small shrinkage there is no need to prewash. If fabric companies wanted us to prewash, they wouldn’t be cutting them into 5” squares, 2.5” strips, and all the precuts they do because they are impossible to wash. Can you imagine trying to wash those pieces, and iron them? Whew what a mess!
Sometimes we meet people that still prewash their fabrics. If you’re using high-quality cotton fabrics, you don’t need to. Your mother or grandmother may have taught you to prewash all fabric. Our grandmas were using flour sacks to make quilts, yes, they needed to wash their fabrics. We live in luxurious modern times so forget prewashing and get straight to stitching!
