this is the question. And I’m not talking about fabric. I pre-wash 95% of my fabric. The only time I have not pre-washed is when making One Block Wonder Quilts or Rag Quilts made from pre-cut charm packs. What I would like to know is, should or should I not, wash a finished quilt that I am selling? Most of the quilts I’ve gifted, I’ve washed before giving them. It makes them all cozy and crinkly. But should I wash a quilt I’m selling? I’m really interested in what my fellow quilters have to say on this subject. I appreciate any and all comments.

I suppose for me the question would be – does it need washing? I use a blue marker for planning my quilting so a finished quilt always gets a cold water rinse and spin followed by a wash if the quilt has been hanging around for a while. The other question to ask is – is it for a bed or is it a wall hanging? If it is for a bed I would definitely wash. xx
Most of the quilts I've gifted are lap quilts and most the quilts I plan on selling on my Etsy Shop will be lap quilts too. So I guess I'll be washing the lap quilts before I ship them. Thanks Lin.
