This is what my fat quarters looked like after I took them out of the dryer. All knotted together with loose strings. Why I did not clip the edges is beyond me. Oh well, with a little snipping of threads, a little spray starch and a little ironing I am ready to start cutting my pieces.
They look almost like they came straight out of the package. I must remember to prep my fabric before I wash it. It would save time in the end.
