Are you washing your quilt fabric before you use it? I hope so. This little quilt is made from the paper color catchers that I place in my washing machine when I wash my fabric. It is amazing how much color is absorbed from the fabric! Even if you don't plan to wash a quilt you have made, if you give the quilt as a gift, the new owner may.
It's always best to pre-wash and dry your fabrics. Sometimes fabrics act differently under the same washing conditions. If one fabric is going to shrink a lot and one is not, you would rather have them do that before they are sewn into your quilt to prevent lumps, bumps, and other unsightly mistakes such as bleeding color all over your finished project!
Better safe than sorry!
