Ok, I can't believe I am actually going to do this, but the baby quilt I am working on is made up almost completely of new fabrics or ones I had in my stash that haven't been washed yet. They are all pastels, so I am thinking of just not washing them since my yardage is going to be tight on some of the colors. Here is my question....do you starch fabric even if it hasn't been washed and still has the sizing? I only done a OBW without washing first and you aren't supposed to starch or wash those first. The pattern is "Fuzzy Bear" from the Nov-Dec '07 issue of "Quiltmaker". I am not making it into a rag quilt, so I am having to adjust the seam allowances. That is another question for later!
