I am arranging a block swap at our local store. I know there are two
very divided camps of pre-wash/non pre-wash but want both groups to be
a part of the swap.
How about if the instructions said "Fabric must be pre-washed or
heavily steamed". Would you non pre-washers understand what I mean and
be OK with having to take this extra step before cutting your blocks?
Is there another term besides "heavily steamed" that I should use?
To my understand if the fabric is heavily steamed there won't be any
additional shrinkage when the finished quilt is washed. The steaming
will also identify any dye problems.
Your comments will be appreciated.
