    Rag Quilt Help Please

    I was wondering if someone might help me. I am making a Double size RQ for mu DSL and am using Tanya Whelan Delilah fabric for the top and white flannel for the middle and pink flannel for the back

    I have done small RQ for my DGC in the past using just a piece of flannel on the top and a piece for the back so just 2 pieces of fabric and they were perfect for the kids.

    This will be the 1st time I am using quilt cotton for the top and 2 pieces of flannel...middle and back.

    My question is should I wash all fabrics before starting the RQ?

    I never washed the flannel when doing the 2 layers RQ for the kids...I always use good flannel...R. Kaufman flannel when making RQs and never had a problem with shrinkage since both sides were the same kind/make of flannel. But since I am using cotton and flannel should I wash them 1st

    I made one like that about 4 years ago for a granddaughter; didn't wash any of it and it has held up well with many washings so far!

        You might take a piece of the flannel and wash it to make sure it doesn't fade. I did check my flannels for that before I used them, esp. reds. Good flannel should be fine, but it pays to do that, at least. Mine have not shrunk so far without prewashing

          I made one using homespun on front and flannel on the back... Never washed any of it and its been about 4-5 years and still going strong!! Lol I refuse to prewash and I've been lucky!
