    "Quilt As You Go"

    Would some of the members here that do this on a regular basis have some recommendations on the best "basic" book for starting with. Thanks.

    Marti Michell "Quilting in Sections" is good because she covers several QAYG techniques.

    Sharon Pederson's "Reversible Quilts" has quilt patterns, but covers just one technique:

    Any of Georgia Bonesteel's lap quilting books explain a technique geared towards handquilting.

    I just quilted a whole quilt using the method from this video. It was the easiest I ever tried. My quilt had sashing and borders. The sashing i added as rows. The borders I added at the end as I quilted.

    Use the search feature on this board. I made one using a technique by one of our
    members - there may be more on there, but this one worked for me.

    QAYG that Kimberly uses :-)

    I only make my quilts by the QAYG method. The links given above are all great. I think it depends,too if want to do any hand sewing. I don't because of the arthritis is my hands and wrists. I mostly use the method on the Quilting Edge. No hand sewing. But you will have sashings.

    Thanks for the replies. I think that the site that STICHNRIPPER refers to is what I'll try.

    If you like quilts with blocks it is an easy way to put quilting or applique on. They are easy to handle, my picture was done that way. The block is reverse applique stitched by hand then machine quilted around . Because didn't like my hand stitching looked naked I fancy stitched each. It was so easy todo , no heavy quilt to work with until all were joined and quilted the joining pieces.

    there are books but can't remember the titles google a search.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    Georgia Bonesteel's books are the best for this method. She calls it Lap Quilting.
    I love my life!
