    Can't wait to try this technique

    I have seen this at several quilt shows over the last year and was really interested but was hesitant about getting it. Last week I got an email and this was featured with both the book and a video...and since I am more of a visual learner than reading I decided to get it. Can't wait to try it out....
    Have any of you done this technique before??

    Took a class just for this purpose and loved it .... except I am digitally challenged, so I didn't finish the project in class. It does take 'finger dexterity/power' and I don't have much of that anymore. Darn.

    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    Ive heard it makes a stiff quilt.
    I watched her videos on Sewing with Nancy but looked like alot of work to me.
    The only quilt as you go that I have done is the Fun and Done and it is not to hard but your backing becomes your sashing and it can get wonky.

    There are two things I am looking forward to getting and Cotton Theory 2 is one of them. Dang - living on a fixed income is the pits.

    I took a class and I'm not really fond of the method. There are rulers, books and other gadgets you purchase for this method. My main complaint is that the quilt is heavy, stiff, and thick. There is a lot of folding over edges and sewing and then refolding and sewing again. My hands were hurting before the class was over. I like the Quilt As You Go Method, also know as Reversible Quilts by Sharon Pederson. I took a class for that method and it was fast and easy and no special rulers were needed.
