Revisting a quilt

Have you ever had a quilt that when you finished it you just was not happy with it ? Well I was looking through some quilt that I had quilted back in the (way back) past and found one that I must have just gave up on and was not happy with it so I put  a binning on and called it finished . I think that I have come a long way in my quilting that I'm going to go back and redo this quilt. I love the fabric and how it was pieced so I want it to be quilted better.…

Cutting or tearing fabric

 I can remember my mother sometimes would cut about an inch into fabric and then tear it all the way down . I really don't like that way ,I was in a quilt shop buying fabric and the sales lady did that to my fabric that I was getting and I ask her if that hurt  the fabric and she said no ,but when I got home and started cutting out my pattern I had to cut a lot of the frayed fabric off .So my question is what do you in our quilting world like cutting or tearing when you buy from a quilt…
