quilt as you go

I'm really liking this 'quilt as you go' technique!  It is pretty labour intensive but let's face it - you are doing the yucky hard work part at the front end in a non hard work kind of way.  And it's much easier to get these little blocks under your needle than a queen size quilt!


Here is my first block, it's made from Japanese inspired fabrics and I'm going to try and do 4 and join them to make a cushion cover.  It's a little wonky but I like it.  And it's very very easy to do.  You could even make them extra wonky if you wanted to.

That is adorable! Where did you find this technique? I really want to try it out.

HI Freda,

I found it via Red Pepper Quilts, it's originally from sewtakeahik.typepad.com (on her tutorials page)
It is really easy and quite fulfilling!

Seems a much better idea than having a whole quilt to womanhandle in the machine, will take a look - loving your fabrics and quilting.
