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 love watching this class. Nancy explains things very well, and as someone else mentioned, the camera work is spot on. I'm wondering if Nancy wants us to use a scant quarter inch seam?

I am a self taught quilter and along the process of quilt making I have purchased classes and books to supplement my understanding and quilt making. I must admit I felt comfortable with quilt making- however, I thought it would be a good start to the new year to check up on myself. I’ll be—I Learned lots, This class by Nancy McNally was enjoyable and most informative. The camera zoomed in for clear sight with Nancy giving a clear descriptive explanation of a technique.

I would definitely recommend this class to newbies and experienced rusty quilters. I look forward to seeking further classes offered by Nancy. She has a great relaxed presentation with a pleasant execution. Glad I invested in this class.

I have just started with the video and I have to say it has been extremely helpful. She was easy to follow and explained everything in great detail. I am anxious to see my results. Thank you!
