Default Kaufman Essex Linen/Cotton mixed with Kona's

I bought Elizabeth Hartman's Fancy Forest kit. Should be .

The kit is a mix of the Essex linen/cotton with Kona cottons. I'm a "washer", so I'll probably wash all fabrics twice to even out the shrinkage, since I've heard that linen shrinks at a higher rate than pure cotton.

Any other tips for me with this mix? I'm skeptical enough about using the Essex that I'm actually considering saving it for something else and using pure cotton for the background on this quilt, but we'll see. This quilt has a ton of tiny pieces, and I hate the thought of it not holding up to washing, etc.

All thoughts welcome. Thank you!
