Quilting Fabric

So I started pressing some fabric for a quilt I'm working on for a Christmas Gift.. and I thought I had pulled it from the pile I had washed.. As I got through the pile, I started to realize.. wait this stuff hasn't been washed.  I was just over 3/4's of the way through it!  *sigh*  Have to wash it tomorrow morning, press and cut.
I thought about not washing it, but there is quite a bit of red and cream fabrics.  I'm afraid of the colours running...

Do you normally wash your fabric before using it?



  1. Oh no! I don't always prewash, but I think in that case I would. If you are making a quilt, the recipients will definitely want to be able to stick it in the washing machine.

  2. Thanks Alli! :) That's what I thought.. I figured with all the reds and creams mixed together, better safe then sorry!
