    I am not sure what you are asking. Most confusing.

    GourmetQuilter has a wonderful youtube video on quilt as you go method. (actually she has 2) One is for making the block and while she doesn't use the 9-patch, you can use ANY block you want. The second is how to put the blocks together with sashing. I plan to use her tute.

    I am more confused, too. It would help if you would put in some periods to make your post more readable.

    Can you send us a link to the YouTube video you are talking about? The Singer 221 is a great machine for piecing, and you can also quilt your blocks with it.

    If you will just take it one step at a time as you follow the tutorial I think you will do just fine!

    There are many styles of quilt as you go. So if one doesn't feel comfortable to you, try a different method until you find " the one " that works best for you.

    I'm currently in the process of determining which one I like best. Have not reached a conclusion yet.

    do a search in Yahoo for Quilt as you Go and you will find lots of tutorials and videos on that. making nine patch blocks can be done in a strip method or just cutting squares and sewing those together. it really should be easy but pictures do help. good luck!!

    If we are all confused ...well most are... How can anyone answer the question with any certainty of giving the right answer. the poster has not yet answered, to my satisfaction, what "old school" is other than cutting with scissors and using an older sewing machine.

    I'm not sure, but I think she's found a tutorial for a QAYG, but wants to do it old school... IE, not QAYG. It reads at first glance like the tutorial shows a binding around each block, but she doesn't think that's right for the non-QAYG method.

    Edit: The more I read the questions, the more I'm not sure I know what she's asking, either.

    .Please define "old school". IMO, old school would be piecing by hand.

    No the binding will not go around each block. Make the quilt top as large as you want and then layer and quilt it, then put on the binding. OR make each block, layer it and quilt as you go, sew them together and then put the binding on the whole quilt top to finish it. I think that is what you are asking. Cute video. Just go to Google and search for old school quilt. I don't think I would ever get it done with a hand crank sewing machine though. :-)

    You need to stop and use punctuation, to be understood. At least throw in a few periods. No, you are not in school but your question appears to be "texting" which is hard to understand with such a complicated (multi-part) question.
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    Just watched that video from appleturnover...oh please! That music was so annoying first of all, and using a hand crank sewing machine! Really how many of us do quilting like that? All for a potholder! Could think of better ways to spend my time...notice the iron...no cord? Did she heat that on a coal burning stove? And she sewed over pins at the last when she was ending the binding.......really now. Some people will do anything to get their 15 minutes of fame. Whomever was the first to post about this method, I hope, does not think this is how it is done....hope she finds more up to date info on utube!!!!

    Geri B you are so funny. At first I also thought that there wasn't a cord for the iron and wondered if she warmed it on top of the stove, but then I did see the cord coming out of the middle of the base of the iron. The base is black as well as the cord. I agree, the music was very irritating, so I just muted it, but then I had to fast forward it because it was just too slow-going.
    Have a blessed day.

    What an awful video! That annoying gramaphone for 15 minutes... like the rest of you I muted it and fast forwarded. The binding was a hot mess... Please, chergram, find another video to follow. Anything by the Missouri Star Quilting Company would give you a lot better videos to learn from. Their techniques are simple and quick, too.

    And please use PUNCTUATION when you post! People get really cranky when you don't and you will only be soliciting mean comments! Punctuate.

    A little kindness here, please. Chergram's writing is not what you are used to reading, but read it a little more slowly, mentally add in pauses (punctuation) and try to read a little between the lines. I get distracted by the spelling errors and grammar in posts, but I am not here to grade writing. She is asking for help, and doesn't need criticism for her writing skills.
    Chergram, there are many wonderful videos on the internet. You will figure it out. If you can go to a quilt store, I am sure you can find people to help you. Keep on posting your questions, we are here to learn and share.
