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.

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.

Your online class was extremely helpful. I started my first quilt the week of January 19th and finished it March 8th. I could not work on it every day and I took my time. I am very pleased with the final product. Thanks for all your help. I will be making more quilts in the future.

Excellent tutorial! I had never quilted before at all, but at age 52, I wanted to learn how. I watched Nancy's video and followed her easy to understand steps. The instructions were so clear and precise. I enlarged the quilt size to fit a queen bed and I'm happy to say I just finished my first ever quilt. I love the way it turned out. It was thanks to Nancy's great class that I was able to make my first quilt. Now I'm hooked! I look forward to more classes as well.

I love crafting and have always wanted to make a quilt. I have watched this video from start to finish 3 times and I love it. I am still gathering supplies and the weather have prevented me traveling to a supply house over an hour away. I have ordered machine plates and feet online that should arrive tomorrow. The only thing I am having a problem with is he expense of first time start up supplies. I hope I will enjoy quilting so much I can make multiple quilts to cover the startup cost. I can't wait to follow video step by step. I will post my progress through out. Please be patient I am a slow learner and only have Sunday and Monday afternoons to craft.
