I found a beautiful layer cake of flannel on sale and I so want to buy it as it would be a perfect snuggly for my granddaughter. But since it is a layer cake, pre-washing isn't in my opinion a good option. How do I deal with this in the finished quilt? I'd likely back with flannel and maybe put one layer of flannel as the middle.
Would you suggest not pre-washing anything and then hoping for the best when it is done?
The fabric is so beautiful I will likely just put a narrow sashing between the squares and not do a lot of cutting, etc.
