    I did a GAUG on a crazy quilt....I found the instructions on the net. It has a narrow 1" strip on the front and a 1 3/4" inch strip (doubled) on the back that you then hand stitched down. It worked pretty good cuz I did some fancy lace and machine stitches on each block layered with top,batting and backing. I enjoyed the hand stitching when I had the rows together. I just goggled "quiltasyougo" and this site came up.

    If you are making string blocks, you can do them quilt as you go. Cut your backing and batting, then sew the strings on the blocks and square. Your quilting is already done. Then, the blocks are put together with sashing, much like the method mentioned above. Easy, pretty, and quick.

    then finished off the quilting!

    Ok, that makes sense to me!.. Thank you for explaining it. :)

    A good site for Quilt-as-you-go is as follows:
    welshquilter.blogspot.com/2008/02/quilt-as-you-go.html.

    I have referred to it and am using the suggestions, but haven't finished my quilt yet, but do like the site and suggestions.

    There is another alternative to 'QAYG. Today, I found a Marti Mitchell book, 'Machine Quilting in Sections' that was originally published in 2004. I think it has been republished, because it was at my local JoAnn's which hasn't been open that long! Anyway, Marti shows a BUNCH of ways to tackle machine quilting big quilts. She shows various ingenious ways of NOT joining all the blocks together until the quilting is finished. Many of them have the borders added and quilted AFTER the rest of the quilt is finished.

    Hi ,
    I'm working on a quilt as you go now. I got the instructions from bayside quilting. The fun and done tutorial. I did my first row on a sudoku quilt. So far it is coming out good. I will try to send a picture. Thanks for all in info on it. I have been wanting to try this for a long time. Joyce Ann

    I have been using the Georgia Bonstell method for years. I just finished up the Yellow Brick Road king size quilt. What I do it join the rows as if I were making a regular quilt, but in three to four row sections at a time. , (which ever you perfer). I also found it easier to attach the border as I go. You can either hand or machine quilt

    I recently bought a book called Machine Quilting in Sections by Marti Michell. It seems that the concept is pretty easy but I haven't had time to complete a quilt by this method.

    I have done a small quilt in sections by piecing squares and sewing them together in a column, adding the batting and backing together, then basting the raw edges of the column together. I attached another column with the right side of the quilt pattern next to the right side of the piece I just quilted. The backing and batting are pinned next to the backing of the quilted strip Then sewed together in 1/4 inch seam. When it is all sewn together, I ironed the new column AWAY from the previously quilted part, sewed the raw edges together 1/4 inch from the edge and added another column. When it is done, it is quilted. Then you add any borders you want and the binding.

    Hope this helps.

    My log cabin (above) was made this way - it's a really quick quilt to make!

    I love the fun and done method. I have made a couple of sudoku quilts for my granddaughters. I thought I'd try one with the quilt as you go method. It's turning out really good. If you google sudoku quilts you can come up with how they are made. Very easy

    Would love to see it when it's done.

    These are both very good. the attached photo was a quilt as you go that I did in about 1982 in a class and it is all by hand except part of the sashing and final border.

    k3n, your log cabin quilt brought back memories from about 30 years ago when I found instructions for this quilt in "Family Circle" or Women's Day" magazine. I had made a couple, and daughters used this method also. Your right, it is quick and easy! There are a number of patterns that would work with this method.
