    Just wondering... the pre-cut squares that are sold on eBay, are they usually pre-washed? Or not?

    I know that the pre-cuts that are made by the fabric manufacturers are not pre-washed. I was curious about the squares that are made & sold by individuals.

    I have ordered them before and most of mine have been unwashed.

    The ones I bought were unwashed. Most of them were cut well.

    the profit margin is so small, i can't imagine that they would pre-wash and iron them. and, if die cut, they'd probably need to be sized or starched for good results. jmho

    Do you think most sellers die-cut the squares, or just rotary-cut them carefully?

    Some I got have been really nice...some have been so wonky they weren't usable (seller replaced later). Some have been nasty fabric that ruined it for me trying any more vendors.

    If I want squares, I wait for a trade on here or cut my own.

    Good luck to others :)

    Not washed in my case. I wouldn't want them if they had been washed. I like sewing with the stiffer pieces.

    Unwashed.

    I have bought hundreds and had no variation. I can't speculate as to whether they were die cut.

    I am addicted to 5 inch cuts!

    Unwashed and appear to be machine cut as they are all perfect in the stack.
