    I had signed up for a class called quilt as you go using a pattern called simon says. Well it looks like I was the only one signed up. Does anyone have advice or books that I can look at? I think I need pictures cause I have heard the concept but just can't get it into my head.

    If you go to your local library, look for Georgia Bonesteel book, Quilt as you Go. Her instructions are very easy to follow. I have been using her method for years. What I do if I am making a full size quilt (any size) I will piece together 2 or 3 rows then batt and back it the method she teaches. I think it is a lot less confusing then the Cotton way.
    Have fun :D

    I purchased a Fun and Done kit from the internet. It is easy to do and turns out nice on the back all quilted. I picked the wrong backing for my first one, not realizing it would show on the front :oops: , it was to busy w/the strips, so am going to start over w/solid color and it should be fine.
