These are the uncut fabrics I've collected to far. I've tried to stick with the solids from the Kona rolls, but I had a few fabrics on hand without a matching Kona roll-up strip, so I had to buy solid yardage for those.
I've been sewing for over 20 years, but I only started quilting about a year ago. I would never dream of making a garment with unwashed (washable) fabric, but for some reason, I don't like pre-washing my quilting fabric and typically don't. But, after a friend had a terrible experience with bleeding when she used a Moda charm pack in a Christmas gift quilt, I'm scared not to pre-wash.
Of course, I can't wash the fabrics from the Kona roll-ups, so I decided to make a little colorfastness test swatch. This 24 x 24" swatch has 36, 2" squares each with a solid and it's coordinating print. The plan is to quilt this, overlock the edges and wash it. If something bleeds, it ruins my swatch, but I'll know not to use it in my quilt. If nothing bleeds, I plan to use it to make a 20 x 20" pillow. I'm really looking forward to the pillow!
