I am starting early and getting my fabric ready for my 'sew connected 3' group. I usually don't wash my fabric unless I am going to be wearing it after I've made something out of it. But since my sew connected 3 quilt is going to be a "picnic" quilt it will probably get washed a lot. I decided to pre wash my fabric.
And I am so happy I did. I don't know if you 've used "color catchers" before. ( I use them for all loads of laundry). They are great. They catch the color that comes out of the fabric so it doesn't go onto other fabrics. This photo is the color catchers after I washed them with my fabric. The white one there is to show you how white it was before I put them in the wash. :o)
