    I usually sew the ends of yardage cuts of fabric together before washing to keep from having too many ravels, but what do you do with fat 1/4's and those jelly rolls?

    I don't have a problem washing fat qtrs and charm packs, just jelly roll's, so I avoid them.

    Don't wash any of my fabrics. Kinda think it stresses the fabric too much, but there is no scientific evidence of this! :-)

    I quickly run the raw edges thru my serger. Works like a charm, no ravels at all. Then into the washer they go, with a color catcher.

    I've heard if you snip the corners off of a fat quarter it won't ravel, but I've not tried it.
