I buy only top-of-the-line batiks, I always launder them before I sew, and I still have had some bleeding issues. The color I have had the worst problem with was a deep turquoise blue, but any intense color can give you headaches. I would never skip pre-washing with batiks. Put the fat quarter in a lingerie bag to minimize shredding. Just my opinion.
