Can/Will someone explain something to me?
For those that wash yardage and don't wash pre-cuts -
Do all the reasons you DO wash yardage suddenly disappear when you buy pre-cuts?
Shrinkage, excess dye, whatever other reasons you DO wash?
Seems to me those are all good reasons to AVOID pre-cuts?
It just doesn't seem logical to me that a person can ignore shrinkage, etc. in a lot of pre-cuts and not tolerate it in yardage.
By the way - my Mom had given me a pack of 5-inch charms - and I washed and dried and ironed them - the variation in the shrinkage ASTOUNDED me - I think the pack was from Quilts & Other Comforts - some stayed about the same - some shrank over 1/2 inch (on a 5 inch charm!)
1/2 inch shrinkage on one 5-inch charm would be four inches of shrinkage on 8 pieces. Seems significant to me.
