Cotton Quilting



Cotton Quilting
Should cotton material be washed before quilting?

It depends partly on the quality of the cotton fabric.

The expensive types of cotton fabrics like those sold in quilt stores have been preshrunk or don’t shrink much, where the fabric sold at regular fabric stores** may or may not shrink enough to make a difference.
(I used to think it was absolutely necessary to pre-wash, and it’s certainly been a truism especially in years past, but a famous quilter and quilt shop owner and fabric buyer told me differently, and I haven’t had problems when I’ve followed her advice.)
It’s also easier to piece bits of fabric if the sizing is still in them… they get limper when washed.

**sometimes a fancy fabric you might see at a quilt store has been printed onto a cheaper cotton when sold at a regular fabric store, so can’t always tell by that either

(btw, I’m assuming you mean before *piecing* when you say “before quilting”…if you really mean quilting though, then not sure if the whole top should be washed first or it could depend on the type of thread you’re using… don’t think I did that either mostly)
