Ok, so I ordered 12 yards of flannel to make a rag quilt and it arrived today. It's 12 different yards in greens, reds, and beiges (I couldn't find much blue for some reason).
Anyway, I've never made one before and I have watched videos of how to but, it never said if the flannel needs to be washed first. It says to wash it afterwards. The flannel that I've seen used in the videos looks to be unwashed.
Wash first or not? I know it's going to shrink a lot.
