    Here is a really easy way to "quilt as you go" if you are like me and have not room.

    I just watched Rose Smith at Ludlow Quilt and Sew using an easy way to quilt in blocks and put them together later. Her website for the tutorial video is http://www.ludlowquiltandsew.co.uk/Q...ou_Go_Fun.html. I have not even started quilting because I don't even have room for a dining room table. So This is my next Great Adventure!! Well soon.

    This is very useful. Thank you for sharing this information.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    Thank you so much for posting this. I don't do anything more than lap quilts because I don't have the room. I would love to make a quilt for our bed and this will allow me to do that.

    Thanks! I'm just to the point of piecing together a quilt as you quilt.

    Thank you! I have just found the most amazing "Quilt as You Go" "Drunkards Path" but the different videos that make up the Tut is all in a foreign language!!!! It makes me crazy but I can get the way it's made.

    Thanks for sharing. This is a perfect explanation. I do have one question.

    When you sew the rows together - where the seam lines meet: Do you trim the overhanging pieces from where the blocks are sewn together? It seems that the fold-over would be too thick and bulky whithout it being trimmed.

    If I am understanding you right... The batting is not sewed together just the backing. The double fold, in the front, gives it a bit more substance since it will receive more wear than the block. There will be no bulk. Is that what you were referring to?

    This is the way I am doing mine. Hurray! It seems I am doing it right. Will be a couple more weeks before I am finished though. The FMQ takes time to do. But with each block, I get better at it.

    Yep...I hate to waste anything. I have been saving them for a while. I did them all on foundation pieces of very thin fabric that I could not use anywhere else. I did learn (the hard way) that one has to be very carefuly and keep your mind on what you are trimming, though!
