Yes, the instructions say to prewash the fabric then starch it.

Yes, the quilt should be washed after it is quilted and bound to remove the starch.

I usually prewash all my fabrics, but because I bought the BOM kit my worry was about the shrinkage and if there would be enough fabric after washing..I think that I'll gently wash them and lightly dry and iron. So exciting! Love the quilt already! I'll download the pattern today. Great way to start a New Year!Thanks

I'm a washer so I already washed and ironed my fabric. I also saw that the instructions for block 1 are out and ready for us. :D

Do Sue and Pat suggest prewashing fabrics? I bought the BOM kit.
