    Quilt as you go

    I've read references to this, and am curious to try it... as I recall, you piece and quilt each block, then use sashing to connect the quilted blocks.

    Anyone have any more info than that? I'd be grateful!

    I'll be interested to see what the replies are too. I think this technique would allow me to actually do some of my own quilting on bigger projects.
    Thanks for asking Deb!

      Hi Deb, if you go to Designs in Machine Embroidery you will find a good video on the reversible piecing technique you are looking for. It is under Stipple it uses your embroidery machine, but it works the same with out an embroidery machine. I have used both ways on small sew-outs, like a small wall hanging. Hopefully this will help.

            Re: Quilt as you go

            There are a couple of books out on Reversible Quilts. I have made several of these and love making them. Reversible Quilts, Two at a Time by Sharon Pederson and More Reversible Quilts by Sharon Pederson.
            Actually that was the first quilt I made. I didn't have the book or a pattern but I had a friend that had made one. It was very challenging for someone who knew nothing about quilts or quilting but I have learned some steps to make them easier now. It's a great way to use scraps and the blocks go together quickly. They are then pieced together with sashing. Shirley

              Hi Deb, at the moment Im doing a rev Log cabin, its soo much fun, but very tricky. I have found a tut http://www.quiltingworks.com/cabin-f...iltasyougo.htm. I really explains how to join the block. looks very complicated, but its dead easy. If i can do it, everybody can. Hope this can help in your quest.

                I use the quilt as you go method often and like it very much. Mother and I made a king size with her living in Ca and I lived in Mo. When we got together we sewed the two parts together! It was great. I viewed one of the tutorials posted above and it is the way I do mine but the tut doesn't make it clear. The method is easy. jtquilts
