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.

Great class, GREAT TEACHER, very clear, easy to listen and understand. Nancy takes all time she needs to explain and repeat the different steps. She is a very nice and kind person, made me feel I was into her classroom. And I want to continue quilting, because this is FANTASTIC! THANK you Nancy and Annie's.

This is easily the best teacher I've ever had to learn a new skill or to refresh and old one. Nancy is clear, encouraging, helpful and just an all-around great teacher. not only did I finish my quilt, I learned so much that I've kept on using again and again and again. Thanks again Nancy for the lifelong gift you give me each time I make another quilt!

I feel very prepared to make this quilt after viewing the video. The camera shots gave clear visuals of the process. There were terrific explanations for the various steps. I would not hesitate to take another online class that Nancy offers. And to be encouraged to treat yourself with eating some chocolate candy when you're finished is the best idea of all!!
