I am about to embark on my first foray into pre-cut fabrics. The pattern I am wanting to use calls for a jelly roll, a layer cake, and 3 yards off the bolt fabric.
Normally, I always pre-wash my fabrics for shrinkage and bleeding issues.
This brings me to a dilemma... Do I pre-wash the yardage as usual? Will I then face shrinkage in parts, but not all of my quilt?
If I don't pre-wash the yardage, will it shrink at a consistent rate with the pre-cuts?
Am I just over-agonizing on this?
Thanks for any advice, anecdotes, or just silly comments you may want to contribute.
