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.

Being the first quilt I ever sewed, I find it helpful. To be capable of watching it over and over again is great. Love all the hints and reminders given by the instructor (Nancy).

I was so impressed with Nancy, she made you feel like you were in her classroom, she really knows her quilting and thanks to her for wanting to help others, I made a nine patch quilt top and never got to finish the class that I took in the town where I live, so Nancy really helped me out, so far I have the batting and the backing on it and I done a little of stitch in the ditch which she showed was so easy.
Thank you Nancy so much for getting me back to quilting again, I will be referring to this class on my computer from time to time especially if I get stumped on something else.

Your such a wonderful teacher Nancy.
