    aaaawww, sorry! It sure looks like a mess when they come out, huh? I like the idea of calling and seeing what they'll do. Take the time to cut them apart and iron them. Maybe there is enough salvagable to continue. Lesson #1....check!

    I washed a load of scraps the other day, went in the washer a large flat rate box full and came out of the dryer filling a 30 gal trash bag. They had to be washed as they were old scraps I got for 1.99 plus shipping and they smelled. My plan tonight is to sit and press them all. I feel your pain although I didn't spend much.

    Well I called Moda and she said it's not their pattern. She suggested I email the pattern company and tell them and see if they will do anything. She said their fabric shrinks very little and that is why they never recommend prewashing.
    So I did and will wait and see if I hear from them. I learned the hard way.

    I did contact the company and got a reply. She said it is recommended to wash jelly rolls and honey buns because of shrinkage but it's by personal choice. She asked me how long I have been quilting. She said there's nothing she can do for me even tho it's their pattern.

    I'm so sorry about this - I feel your pain! As quilters, we are always learning something new. Chalk it up to "live and learn" and move forward. At least in your misery you have plenty of company since we've all been there in way or another. ;)

    oh no!!! I'm so sorry that happened to you.

    I agree, jelly rolls are expensive. :(

    That is awful. :( I think I'd write back and ask them to explain how they manage to wash a jelly roll without it getting all wonky and messed up. And then tell them they should add that method to their patterns.

    I'm really surprised that a pattern would specify jelly roll strips AND THEN SAY TO WASH THEM! I did that once for a very specific reason and I spent untold time unraveling them and ironing them.

    I don't wash pre-cuts at all. If I use other fabric with them it's usually from the same fabric collection, like a border print, and I don't wash that either.
