    I do not pre-wash my fabric and have never had a problem with fading. I like the feel of fabric with sizing. Would like to see a swap for fabric or blocks, etc. stating "do not prewash".

    I don't. I tried it once and never will again. What a mess I got. I've never had a problem with colors so guess I've been lucky. Only 2 times did a color run and it was red and I caught it immediately and was able to soak the color out safely. I like my quilts to be puffy and after I wash them, they have a nice little puff to them and people think I've done trapunto but I haven't. Some have even argued with me that yes I did but I've never tried trapunto.
