I am a VERY new quilter. I am in the process of making an applique "memory" quilt for my daughter who moved from Michigan (home) to Boston.
My questions is this: The blocks I am putting together are 12 x12. Can I machine quilt them separately and then sew them all together? I am not sure if I am making myself clear, so I will try to explain.
I woud like to applique the top material together with the batting and the backing block by block. The reason is that I have a difficult time machine quilting the entire twin bed sized quilt after the fact.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
