I have done a couple of quilts by the quilt as you go method, one double and one king. There are some patterns, though, that don't lend themselves to th is style of quilting, such as the apple core that is sitting on a shelf in my sewing room waiting for me to figure out how to get it quilted. I tied the one I made for my middle grandson. I make mostly lap quilts that I can quilt on the sewing machine. Between the MS and my arthritis, I'm unable to hand quilt anything anymore. The apple core quilt top is for a double bed. Since there isn't enough room between my sewing machine and the wall to quilt it in the sewing room, I'll have to set up a sewing machine in the living room. Next problem is where to find sufficient room to lay out the sandwich. If I keep putting th is off long enough, maybe it will become my daughter's problem. She can figure out h ow to get that apple core quilt quilted while she is deciding what to do with the boxes of quilt fabric I've accumulated.
SHE WHO DIES WITH THE MOST FABRIC WINS, or so I've been told.
