I just recieved a box of random cotton squares, 8-10" across. I made a small quilt with some of them, and it shrunk funny in the washer. (Most of my fabric I prewash, but I wasn't sure how to keep these from shredding in the washer, so I just went for it).
Has anyone tried washing a quilt top before putting the sandwich together? Would that possible help prevent the wierd deformation in the finished quilt?
