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.

I just finished my first pieced quilt with this video class. Thank you, Nancy, for your very clear and well-presented class. I'm ready to tackle the next one now!

This was a great class!! I am a difficult learner so I watched the video through once and learned so much in order to understand before I execute the making of the quilt. I feel ready and confident to go ahead and try my hand at my first quilt. Thank You Nancy I will definitely be taking more classes!

That is the best video I've ever had about quilting. Nancy is a great teacher. I agree with other students, Nancy's instructions are very clear, I am happy I bought the video.

I made this quilt a couple of months ago from the online class and it came out beautiful. Instructions were clear and little hints helped a lot. I think the class is well worth it. The only change I made was to add to it as I wanted a king-sized quilt. But the basic quilt alone was beautiful. I would give it ten stars if they were available!

This class is well worth taking. Much better than a lot of other online classes I've tried. Nancy is a very good teacher. Her instructions are very clear and easy to understand. I was delighted that Nancy showed us how to line up the fabric for cutting. I hope she will be following up with class for those of us who want to graduate to Intermediate rating.
