    Maybe you can post a picture of it and suggestions will follow?

    Hope you find one that works for you and that perhaps this one will get you started.

    I would suggest the book "Row by Row: 10 easy bar quilts" by Terry Martin. Published by That Patchwork Place.
    The block patterns are not complicated and there are some good ideas for theme quilts.

    Yeah, it makes it at least look do-able. I haven't tried it that way yet but hope to as I have a large print fabric I've cut into 12 inch squares to make into a quilt for my queen size bed and doing it on an angle to boot. I think I made it harder on myself.

    I don't understand what is meant by "dovetailing" the batting. Can someone explain that to me, please?

    We have had a post for that on here. I don't remember if it was a link to another site or if one of our members showed us how they did it. If you use our search field on 'fun and done' and 'quilt as you go' I think you will find reference to it. I am thinking it may have been a link to quilters world./Regards, Dorothy

    There is a picture in the tutorial, just following that remark. It seems to show that you split the difference in the thickness of the batting, so the batting overlaps, but remains a consistent thickness.

    Hi, Im working on my FIRST and using a book from Beth Donaldson called Block by Block. The instructions are very clear and so far so good! If you will google QAYG or quilt as you go, you will get several different sites with instructions, all different so you can pick and choose, but the Block by Block technique is only in that book. :D

    Here's a picture of one I taught many years ago for beginners. I started with the stars at the top and worked my way down. Maybe it will give you some ideas.
