To Pre-Wash or Not To Pre-Wash -

That is the question of the day.  About four years ago, I began pre-washing all of my fabric before piecing the quilts and other projects.  However, I know there are others who do not wash any of the fabric until after everything is pieced together.  My fear is that if I don't wash fabric until after piecing then the fabric may shrink to the point of distorting the end result.  But I don't know how likely that is  with contemporary technology and I do like the puckered look of older quilts.

What do you do and why?
