Batting Terminology-Word of the Day

Pre-Soak- Some batting manufactures recommend you pre-soak (shrink) a batting to ensure there will be no shrinkage in the finished quilt. This is usually done by filling a washing machine w/ hot water submerging the batting and allowing it to soak (No agitation) and then spinning the water away. That is followed by laying it flat and allowing it to air dry or tumble in the dryer. Follow manufactures’ instructions on the package.
