I want to try this but that makes me a little nervous, also it seems like the seams might be pretty bulky. I want to try quilt as you go but I don't want to hand stitch the back or add sashing so this seemed like a good alternative. Thanks!

    I have made some of the "quilt as you go" lap quilts years ago. It's quite easy but yes, the seams are a tad bulky. You can always topstitch them down after sewing the pieces together and pressing them out. It's a quick way to make smaller quilts but I wouldn't recommend it for larger quilts. It's more for "utility" sake. There are many youtube videos on how to do this but most are for small projects like placemats.
