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.

Excellent class! The instructions are clear and well illustrated. I watched the entire class, then reviewed certain parts as needed while making my quilt. I finished my first quilt for my grandson several months ago. I am quilting again and reviewed once again the section on how to sew on the binding. Thank you.

This was an awesome class. It took me from February to August to finish because I hand sewed it to start, but finished it up on the machine. I will refer back to this many times in the future.

This lady that run's this class needs a medal. She is just wonderful. I am after watching it a couple times now, and each time I learn some more information required. I will write something else when I start to sew up my first quilt. I am sure I will be successful after finishing it. Thanks a lot.

I am a beginner-beginner quilter but would like to be an advanced quilter. This class is the best class I have been able to find. The instructor explains each step so that it is easy to follow. The fact that I can pause & continue at any stage has been a wonderful help. Cannot say enough about how pleased with this class I am.
