I cannot cut a large piece of fabric until I know how I will use it. I really can't, it's too painful to see that beautiful piece of art damaged. Instead, I store all my fabric in bins by color until they turn into scraps smaller than a fat quarter.
You two are good together, and (totally off topic) have beautiful shiny hair!
Thank you so much sisters. x
Ive learned EVERYTHING about sewing and quilting from this channel, you guys are so great!
I am a quilter and a longarmer, AND I RIP MY FABRIC!!!!
Thank you very much for this managing fabric tip. Hope you have more helpful tips along these lines.
you two are sweetie pies x great videos thanks for skill sharing x
you should always rip or pull a thread to find a grain on fabric. this will tell you a lit about the fabric, especially the quality and if the grain line is poor.
Love the sisterly LOVE, Thanks for the tips.CC
I absolutely hate ripped fabric. Horrible waste near the tear, and causes distortion. I will not buy fabric from a shop that rips it.
I love these videos but often the writing the that pops up covers what I want to see. Perhaps you can save those pop up for CC instead? The pop ups are very distracting.
Lovely vid – but would be so much better if the makers would answer commenters' questions.
I love your tutorials! Real informative for a little experience quilter.I love to sew!
I am new to quilting, question: Do I have to wash my fabric prior to cutting?
Great video, well explain. I learned something
My local fabric shop always rips the fabric – it keeps the grain straight and helps the wrists of the workers.
I'm sorry, but unless I know exactly what I want to make with a fabric I would never cut it apart like that. What if it turns out to be the perfect backing? What if you want to do lots of bias strips for binding a big quilt? You also create a lot of waste–need 3" blocks but the piece is 8" wide? Now you have 2" you can't use in the current project. Plus, nothing is ever as strong as a solid piece of fabric. I would not cut anything until I knew I needed small pieces.
I love the quilt that behind you guys .
Great tips ladies once again I learned something I did not know and I love the sister connection you guys are awesome thank you for all of your help
You asked what we do first with the fabric… I wash it… Don't you? If so, could you please tell me why? TY for any help…
It finally worked on my iPad! Thanks Quilty!
I had trouble watching it on my iPhone, but it worked fine on my desktop.
Nice to see sisters that like each other:)
I've been trying to watch this for the last 2 days and only get "playback error".
I keep trying to watch the video and can't.
Playback error for two days
Playback error 🙁
why can you just use rotary cutter instead of ripping it apart???
Yep I'm having trouble viewing too
I can't watch it either on ipad
you can also look at the weave of the fabric to find the grain
Another way to find the grain of the fabric (which a lot of you probably already know) is to pull some of the thread of the fabric on the side of the piece.
I cant seem to view this video is there a problem with it playing on mobiles?
