    getting rid of the chemicals by washing and then wouldn't starching the fabric make it easier to cut. and to stop the stretching. Just a thought
    Might work.....just remember...yards and yards and yards and yards...to wash, dry, starch and iron.
    Your repeats might not be exact, but if you are sensitive to the chemicals, you could try it. If you use a smaller repeat and cut the triangles smaller, you don't need as much fabric. That way if it doesn't work right, you haven't invested as much money.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! Perfect, now at least I'll know what folks are talking about. Some of them are funny, particularly SABLE because it fits me perfectly.

    LOL (lots of love) for sharing with a WIP.

    When making an OBW, ist hat the only time you do not wash the material. I always wash my material.
