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 struggled with squaring up the quilt and with binding. This video was so helpful and I will make another quilt to put my knowledge to the test. Thanks for excellent instruction and tips.

I am 74 just now learning to do quilting. Nancy's video is so easy to follow and she explains in excellent, easy words. I am taking a beginner's quilting class with one more class to go, but I love having this video to review. Today I followed Nancy in putting my borders on. Thank you so much, Nancy!!!!

I am 71 years old and I am beginning to learn how to quilt. I really enjoyed Nancy's Class. She made it so simple and easy to follow. I plan to make more quilts, and wall hangings plus pot holders and placemats for my children and grandchildren. Thank you so much. I plan to take more classes.

Nancy was the best instructor for me to attempt my very first quilt. Her instructions and tips were invaluable. I even enjoyed the thought of a chocolate treat. Nancy is precise and so incredibly easy to understand. I've nearly finished my quilt and I'm excited to start another one. I'm considering buying Nancy's other quilting class as I know it will teach me so much. Thank you Annie's and a huge hug and thank you to Nancy.
