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 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.

Great class very easy to follow along and Nancy was a great teacher. I have been quilting for about a year now but love to see what other people teach so I can continue learning.

Was very pleased with this presentation. It was very easy to follow along. I am currently in the middle of my first quilt and like the idea that I am able to refer back to this training if I get stuck. Nancy was a pleasure to learn from as she made it easy for even this beginner to understand each step. Nancy, have another chocolate for excellence!

Awesome video very very informative Nancy you did a great job of keeping things to where beginner doesn't get lost. I had taken a beginners quilting class about a year ago and Nancy gave some different techniques that I thought was easier.
