I am learning so much on this board. Thank you everyone for sharing all your incredible experience.
I was always told to pre-wash my fabric before quilting or any sewing for that matter; in fact, the FIRST thing I do when I get home from the fabric store is throw my new fabric into the washing machine.
But I've seen reference to preferences for unwashed fabric. And on e-bay I'll often see -- for example -- jelly rolls that contain unwashed fabric. (And what the heck do you do about THAT? Seems like washing 2.5" strips would be a nightmare.)
So are y'all willing to share your experience again on this topic? When would one want to work with unwashed fabric?
