Default Quilt as You go sucess

I have never been sucessfull with quilting on my home machine , and as I live in the UK sending a quilt out is well nigh impossible due to the prices , sooooo I have been trying a squillion ways to learn how to quilt as you go .I have come across this video on you tube by Lindee G , its the answer to my prayers , it shows a rather gorgeous baby quilt which is embroidered , but after that bit it shows the easiest (well to me anyway)way of QAYG, I tried it on orphan blocks of all different sizes and it works every time , and best of all , no fiddling about folding and cutting and hand sewing (yak)
I hope this might interest some who are thinking of using this method.
Regards
Kathryn

I've just done a search and can't find it either. I would be very interested too.

I would post a direct link if I knew how but I found it by going to Google and typing in.....It's a Girl Fast Quilt As You Go Embroidered Quilt and the you tube listing came up. It does look simple and the quilt is very cute.

I just finished a quilt as you go quilt (pictures in the picture section- thread says something about Shadow Trapunto).

I didn't necessarily find it any easier to do than a regular quilt- putting it all together was difficult, it just moved the difficulty (the wadding of the quilt to get it thruogh the machine) to another step.

It is a tool I'll keep in my arsenal, but it won't solve all problems for me. Only if I want that look.

I found this tutorial very helpful. http://maureencracknellhandmade.blog...-tutorial.html She quilts the top and batting squares, sews them together then adds the backing with stitch in the ditch to hold the layers together.
