    Leah Day also has a good tutorial on QAYG. Google her name - she does the Free Motion Quilt blog.

    Just pick a method and try it. I've done 4 different methods so far. The method demonstrated at http://www.quiltingworks.com/cabin-f...ltasyougo3.htm is the same method that Sharon Pederson introduced in her book Reversible Quilts. Most libraries have at least one of her books that shows you how to assemble the finished blocks (and yes, you can quilt right to the edge). Front and the Back

    I usually do strip quilt as you go - mostly because I hate finishing work but love the ease that I can quilt smaller sections on my sewing machine. You stop quilting within 1/2 inch of edge. This is my best example. Front and the Back

    I am a lazy finisher and really only recommend the block by block QATW method for hand quilting.

    I have not tried this method, but have it bookmarked, because of the 'no sashing needed' idea

    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean???? Me neither.

    It's not how fast you sew, it's how well you sew fast! Wait, I think that's supposed to be MOW!

    Come join us at jenniky's tutorial/challenge. It's ongoing and we are going to explore all the different QAYG techniques as we go along. There is no time line or deadline to complete a certain project. The challenge is to learn as much as possible about QAYG and to try the different methods and be a contributing member of the group with questions and sharing your experiences and photos as you have them.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Could we see a larger pic....maybe one that would enlarge? Did you do it in sections of blocks rather than each block as it doesn't look like each blk is bound. Love it! TIA

    I took classes on Fun and Done and Cotton Theory. The quilts had a very 'beefy' non flexible feeling. Not like a regular quilt at all. Very puffy and I used thin flannel with the Fun and Done quilt.
    Got fabric?

Come join us and learn, ask questions, pick up great tips. We're learning from each other and having fun along the way ...

    I don't have a link to the method I use, I learned it so long ago. As I am thinking about it, it just might be Georgia Boonsteel.

    I like this technique for quilt as you go better than any other. The youtube video is very good also.
