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.

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!!

I had been trying to teach myself to quilt from books and you tube videos. How I wish I had seen this DVD before I got into all that. Would have made life a lot easier. I learned a lot, even though I have made several small quilts and wall hangings on my own.
I liked the instructor and was practically mesmerized at how well she handles fabric. I hope to achieve that level some day. I think for the most part things were explained well, except near the beginning when you are piecing. I thought maybe I missed a part and went back over the DVD, but no I hadn't. It seemed like she spent a lot of time with certain things and not others. For example, I would have liked to see more about piecing the quilt and not so much at the end of doing the binding. I didn't think it was necessary to show doing all 4 sides. I think one side and the end would have been sufficient. But overall, I think it was a good class and I plan to check into other classes and hope they are done as well. I wish there had been a little more, also, about the importance of the seam allowance. I don't recall a lot being said about that.

This video is easy to listen to and explained in great detail. I have sewn for many years but never thought I could make a quilt. My first quilt I made for my daughter and it need some help. This Video has made me see the errors I made. You can tell that the instructor is very knowledgeable and easy to follow.
