Hi all, I'm new to writing in response to messages but I wanted to let you know what I've discovered re quilting in sections. Years ago (hate to say how many, it was during the 1970's) Georgia Bonesteel wrote several books using the quilt-as-you-go method, she called it Lap Quilting. Recently Marti Mitchell wrote a great book on this subject. She explains it very well, and offers several patterns that are adaptable to quilt-as-you-go. Nancy Zieman tells how to do a reversible quilt done in strips, in her book 10-20-30 Minutes to Sew for Your Home. She recently demonstrated this on QNNTV. Hope this info is helpful.
