I understand that starch may attract insects. Is that true? If so, I guess I have to launder all fabric before making the quilt so that I can launder it after to get all the starch out. Sometimes there are fabrics I don't want to launder, for wall hangings. Any suggestions?
I use the Elmer's glue that Sharon Schambler suggests and it really makes binding the quilt smooth but, since this is also starch, I guess it needs to be laundered when the quilt is finished.
Does anyone have experience with insects getting into starched quilts?
