    I first got the idea of quilting in sections from Barbara Bonesteel's Lap Quilting. But Marti Mitchell's book helped me by showing several ways to do it, and I have used her ideas since.
    I think that usually when it comes out a different size its partly due to not sewing truly accurate seams. I do sometimes have that problem, and have sometimes cut larger, especially when dealing with triangles. I'm still working on accuracy, and I think it comes from careful cutting and being sure that your 1/4 seam is true. Try your needle position out using some graph paper (for example) to find out where your true 1/4 position is. Sometimes I move the needle to the right 1 notch to sew just the teensiest bit less than 1/4 and I can usually get the patches to match. Be sure to match seams carefully, too. I think its something all of us beginners struggle with until we get it down. I have only been quilting for about 4 years, but I really enjoy trying new things. Right now I'm working on purses as a break from a large project.

    I have used this method of pieced quilt as you go. I think it is called Cotton Theory Quilting. It works great. I would love to learn from the expert. I live in the center of Wyoming, Rolling Hills, but would not mind traveling to Salt Lake City. Do you have any information you can send me on the next class? ramona@wvista.net if it is not appropriate to post on this medium.

    This process was easy to use and I think everyone can do it. I was impressed how easy it was to handle lots of material. It is also very easy to use if you start with a quilted pre-purchased panel and want to make it larger.

    Happy Quilting, Ramona

    I will send you the info, but it is quiet lengthy, So if you will send me your e-mail I will write you and tell you how I do it. But it will be in alittle while, I've got to do my Bible study right now. But I've got to wait for your response anyway. ok

    Quilting in sections sounds much easier, but how do you finish the seams on the back once you put all the quilted blocks together?

    Marti Mitchell has several ways. One is to turn under one side (which is a little bigger) and hand sew it. Another is to add a strip that covers the seam.
