    Quilt As You Go

    I need instructions to do a QAYG throw for charity. Something easy and fast, if that is possible. Any suggestions?

    This sight has some quilt as you go ideas. As long as you pay attention to keeping the pieces lined up correctly, you should have quick success.

    What about a snowball? I did a practice run (3 squares) doing quilt as you go and the snowball worked well. Other patterns might not work as well.

    If you don't mind hand sewing, I have done hexangonal blocks that are about 24" across. I used the birthing method to complete each block then quilted each one. Then I simply handstitched them all together.

    The 90 min quilt is a kind of QAYG. Watch the video all of the way through. At first it just looks like picts but there are instructions closer to the end.

    We make a eaysy strip quilts for Linus in our group. You take the backing, right side down, put batting on top and then we use strips what ever width you like 2 or 2.1/2,3 or combination.) full width of the fabric. Draw a straight line from right to left in the middle of your quilt. Lay the first strip right side up on the batting, take a second strip and put right side on first strip. Sew through all layers with 1/4 seam allowance. Open top strip and now you have two. Continue to the same thing again. Do same for the other direction. This way you quilt as you go along. Bind and you are done or bring the backing to the front and fold and topstitch. We make a lot of 40-45x60 quilts. Lap quilts etc., so the size is perfect.
