I was just reading Sally's comments on prewashed scraps. Are the fabrics for the charity quilts to be pre-washed or not?? If so, that will put a bit of a wrinkle in my assembling, as my scraps are not pre-washed, and I will need to do so before making my blocks!!

Midge, we always use pre-washed fabrics for charity quilts and all swaps. I have always washed mine - they don't make it past the laundry room. I know there are people who prefer unwashed, but I've heard of ladies getting sick every time they went into their sewing rooms because of fumes from their unwashed fabrics. Now that likely isn't true for most, but I like the way unwashed sticks together.

Out of habit, before I do anything with fabric I pre-wash it, so the scraps will be automatically done .... then I wash it after I've finished with it to get my hand oils off it before it goes to its new home ....
