It can be amazing to look back and realize how far you've come. My first quilt (made at age 15) was a strip quilt for my musician boyfriend — yes, I actually used fabric with musical notes. He still has it! That first quilt was not my best work, so whew, I'm glad it lasted. Here's what I wish that baby quilter had known.
Ah, one of the great quilting debates: To pre-wash or not to pre-wash your fabric. Some people swear by it, while others think it's not worth the extra time. The good news is you can't really go too wrong either way. The bad news, though, is you're going to have to weigh the pros and cons below and come to your own conclusion. We're not taking sides here!
