    quilt as you go

    I am looking for a book where you quilt the blocks as you go, then add binding and quilt the binding and the quilt is done. The books I have found just sew together the blocks with no binding. Help!

    Why would you quilt the binding? Am I missing something?
    So much fabric, so little time.

    Maybe you mean sashing instead of binding? I would recommend "Machine Quilting in Sections" by Marti Michell. She covers the sashing technique along with several others.

    I think what you are looking for is sometimes called quilt as you go with joining strips—you attach narrow strips front and back and make kind of a box pattern. But you still need binding on the other edges of the quilt. Anyway, try looking inside this book and see if it’s what you want.

    Georgia Bonesteel introduced Quilt as You Go. Her books are wonderful. They can be found on Ebay and in many libraries. She is a quilting legend not many newer quilters know of.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Suggestion ... save your $$ for fabric!

    Use the links provided and google some more.
    This gives you the advantage to learn about the different QAYG methods, without cost.

    Soon, you will know all you want to know and then some!

    Sounds like a pot holder quilt which were popular during the Civil War.

    Jera Brandvig also teaches QAYG. She has some tutorial videos on the Fat Quarter Shop website or You tube. Her fabric designs are also beautiful!

    I have both of her books, Quilt As You Go Made Vintage, and Quilt As You Go Made Modern. Both are really good.
