I have done a few projects with my quilt group in this method. I personally don't like all the seams showing on the front. Also, when it takes four pieces to make one large square, it is very difficult to line up all the pieces from 4 quarters. Once they are stitched, you can't fix. I did it again with the same pattern, but added all the regular sewing allowances. Then I quilted it as we know how. I liked it much better, because it is smoother, not so heavy. It was fun learning, but it is not for me. By the way, I think the quilt in the picture above was well done. I only did small items. Maybe that was the problem

that is evidently how i made my Hawaiian quilt. didn't know it had a name/method.
for no seams showing on the front, you would just have to remember to make your front blocks larger so you would have more of a seam and sew them toward the back. i am going to try that soon myself.it would mean a stitching line on the front showing however. not sure about that.

I tried the fun and done method and was not successful at all. I gave the quilt away to good will. Hope it found a good home.

Default My Experience

I too bought the tool at the quilt show in Houston and love it. I made a crib size quilt for Project Linus just as a practice and it was easy and great and fun to do. I am attaching a picture of my quilt. I am currently working on another one where I embroidery the blocks and when they are done, I will put them together.

Just remember to shorten your stitchs when connecting the backings.
The pattern is called Woven Wonder Quilt. Easy to do and I really like the pattern just changed the color a bit to get two different block colors.

I think I would go over the seam with a meandering stitch wide enough to catch the batting-that should shore up those seams!

Thanks for the links!

I have some finish quilt square samples that I want to make into a quilt. QAYG looks like it has the info I need.
