Beware-not actually square--shrinks one way.
I am new to quilting and have not been prewashing my fabric as many of the quilters I follow say it is not necessary. Using Hoffman and Kaufmann fabrics, I have not had any issues. This is my first use of Timeless Treasures fabric. Be aware--it will shrink in only one direction. Cutting the squares out carefully with a consistent black border at 11 1/2 inches, once sprayed with starch to press, all the "squares" became 11 x 11 1/2 inch rectangles. I can adapt my pattern but am disappointed that these are not true squares. All the Timeless Treasures fabric I purchased to coordinate with this is the same--it all shrinks in one direction. Each square lost 1/2 inch in height. I will prewash any Timeless Treasures fabric from now on. The fabric is beautiful however, so am pleased with that.
