Sorry. It seems like life has gotten in the way of both blogging & sewing!
This was Sunday, March 30th. The day before it was in the 70’s! I want Spring!
Yesterday I did get to visit 2 wonderful quilt shops and picked up some fabric. Today I’m washing the fabric so I can get onto some projects this week.
Ok, pictures of fabric in a washing machine aren’t exciting – but, hey! That’s what I’m doing. We washed the dark colors last night.
Do yo wash your fabric before sewing? I know that’s a controversy in the quilting world. I’m in the group that sometimes I wash and sometimes I don’t.
I wash batiks. I feel that makes them easier to work with and gets out any remaining dyes. I wash darks – especially reds & blues – to avoid post sewing bleeding when using with whites or other light colors. Exception: I don’t prewash precuts like charms & jelly rolls or kits.
I promise some pictures of my projects soon.
