Pre-wash or Not?

That always seems to be part of conversation among us quilters.  Pre-wash or not? Sometimes I wonder why I pre-wash, especially after having to iron a mess like this.   Probably the biggest reason why I pre-wash is this:  I use to not pre-wash but after becoming a longarm quilter I found that my quilting design would get lost in the quilt after it had been washed because of all the shrinkage.    I do like that look sometimes, depending on the quilt.  But most the time I want to see the quilting.  Oh and better tension on my longarm  quilting machine and that's why I pre-wash.  

What about you?  Would love to know if you pre-wash or not and why?
