Is it really necessary to wash all my fabrics before starting to patch?
If you are really acro, you have already asked this question many times in stamping impatiently to play with your new fabrics. (Oh Damn we'll have to wait until tomorrow they are dry to begin with ....)
Purists, and traditional school, we say YES!. And it's for good reason. A quilt whose tissues have shrunk in the wash or rub off .. you imagine the disaster .. deformation, folds, colors that bavées .. short .. the nightmare!
So the right question to ask is rather, in my opinion: is what I intend to wash my quilt?
If it is a wall hanging, very fragile, it is likely not. The interview will be rather a dusting possible. In this case .. need to wash your cloths. (You can still of course!)
By cons, if you concoct a babyQuilt or a bedspread for your chick ... it bodes well to do.
