    If you do a search on here for quilt as you go you will find discussions about this. Basically it is a method of sewing squares together in such a way that the seams create a basic quilt stitch as you piece the quilt. It is an efficient way to accomplish both piecing and quilting that lets you go on to other projects. The raggedy flannel quilts is one of the recent methods of this option.

    Patrice gave us these good instructions:
    Method 1:

    stitch the blocks together in rows.
    sandwich the backing, batting and top for the first row
    leave at least two or three inches of extra back and batting at the sides and top, but trim the batting so it's just a leeeetle bit more than a 1/4" short of the bottom edge of the backing in and top.
    quilt that sucker right up to the edges if you want.

    lay down the batting for the next row
    put the backing right-side up on top
    next, put the quilted row on top - front facing up
    then put down the next row of the top - face down - just as you would do if you were only assembling the top.
    match your seams, pin into place
    sew your quarter inch seam through all the layers

    when you flip the back and front, you'll have the three layers in proper order.
    quilt that sucker right to the edges, too

    repeat this process until you've done all the rows.

    if you pieced the border, too, the only thing left to do is the binding.

    if you haven't added the borders yet, do so now. use the same method you used for the rows.

    c'est voila!!!! all quilted and no hand stitching needed to close or cover any of the seams.

    bind that puppy and show it off to the world.

    hope this helps. also if you put QAYG in the search you will find other help here at the board
