Learn to Make a Quilt From Start to Finish FAQ

Should I prewash my fabric?Expand

There are pros and cons to washing or not washing. The pros to prewashing fabric are that the fabric shrinks, the sizing will be washed out, and for any fabric that is going to bleed, the dyes will come out in the prewash and not all over the quilt the first time it is washed and the fabric becomes softer.

The cons would be that you lose the stiffness, you have to iron the fabric after you take it out of the dryer, and you'll have to clean up the edges from the frayed fabric.

Pros to not washing are that the fabric keeps its body/stiffness and therefore can be easier to work with, and the colors/dyes stay bright.

The cons to not washing are that the fabric shrinks the first time it is washed and creates an "old" look to the quilt. Also, if there are any fabrics that are going to bleed, you are taking your chance the first time you wash the quilt.

Should I use steam when ironing?Expand

I only use steam if there is a stubborn wrinkle that a dry HOT iron won't remove. Too much steam can cause the quilter/piecer to distort the block because the steam wets the fabric. So if you must use steam, use it lightly.

This class is very informative and clearly demonstrated. I am in the middle of my first project and was having problems working things out, this class has given me the knowledge to be able to finish with a professional look and also make my next one - this brick and stone pattern - with more knowledge to do a better job. Thank you.

I enjoyed your class; it was very informative and really good. I am a beginner. I have never done a quilt in my life although I can sew, but never quilts. Thanks for the lessons. They are great!

Kind regards,
Janie

I am very impressed with the clarity of Nancy's voice and the clear instructions. I am about to start my quilt in a short while, and I am hoping I will get it done properly because it is going to be a wedding gift -- I hope.
