I had a really good idea, sort of. I bought some flannel to make some cute little baby quilts for charity. I thought a simple little four patch, flannel front and back, sew right sides together, turn right sides out and quilt. Simple, right…
Confession, I have never, never ever, not in my lifetime sewn on flannel.
One friend said to me that my idea was a good one, simple and easy. I asked her about pre-washing and she replied that since I was making small baby quilts, “just wash them after you make them to give them the soft crinkly look.”
However another friend said I had to pre-wash.
Normally I do, I ALWAYS pre-wash, well except pre-cuts. Always always always… so why did I think I could get away with not pre-washing this time I have no idea.
So I put the question to one of my Yahoo groups…. And did I get replies…“You, the pre-wash queen not pre-washing?”
“What a ridiculous question, especially coming from you”
“You are joking right, of course you prewash flannel”
“I was so shocked at your question I spurted my coffee all over my tablet”
So I guess I will be pre-washing
