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.

Nancy is a fantastic teacher! I have never sewn or quilted anything before and my quilt turned out absolutely beautiful!!! Nancy explains things very well and makes everything easy to follow. Additionally she is very responsive when submitting questions online. I highly recommend this class.

While I have not made the quilt yet, and it has been some time since I have tried, I did sit and watch the lesson on my computer. Instructions are pretty simple, if you can listen to what is said and follow directions this should be a simple quilt to make. I am looking forward to, putting the pieces together. My biggest problem was choosing, what colors, to use as there are so many beautiful fabrics to choose from. I would give this lesson a five star rating and I am looking forward to improving my quilting skills and purchasing more in the future.

Wow! Thank you Nancy! I have taken a few beginner classes at my local fabric store and did not learn many of the techniques that you had demonstrated in your video. Your video has helped me in so many ways. I have finished 3 baby quilts and 1 crib size quilt for my 1st grandchild! I will be using your techniques from now on!! Thank you again Nancy. I'm looking forward to your next class!

I have found this a very useful video. Here in New Zealand classes are quite expensive, and as I live in a rural area, not so easy to get to classes.

This class is very helpful and informative. I picked up on some pointers that I hadn't heard of before now. Nancy was very thorough and made it all look so easy. I am looking forward to making the Bric and Stones wall hanging for a starter.
