    A little white vinegar dabbed on the fabric and then ironed should take the wrinkles right out. Or put white vinegar in a spray bottle and spritz the fabric. Works for me.

    Depending on the project, I like to hand wash my fat quarters in the sink. Squeeze out the excess water, shake with a snap, then you can hand or lay to dry. Before it's completely dry, iron. This process gets the wrinkles and fold lines out for me.

    I agree. Best Press can be purchased at a LQS and Since I used it the first time and every wrinkle just disappeared, I am hooked. And no residue left behind after ironing. ♥

    Are your fabrics all 100% cotton, or a mix of other types?

    I discovered Best Press last year and absolutely love it. Comes in different fragrances also. Sometimes Hancock Fabrics has it on sale, too.

    I'd prewash everything if I were you, otherwise you won't be able to wash the finished quilt without a high risk of the red running onto the other fabrics.
