    What is it called?

    Can you see my living and dining room, can you, can you? Do you know why they are turned upside down and no, it is not because I am taking down my tree and decs?

    Well, I will tell you, I have lost a pattern for a quilt which I bought from the WI at Ally Pally at the Knitting and Stitching show a couple of years ago... strike that it was probably four or five years ago. Now I don't want the quilt pattern but I do want their technique for putting it together in order to create a sampler quilt for my blog.

    As far as I remember each block was made almost all the way to completion then sewn together with the seams on the reverse being covered with sashing to create a clean back but I cannot remember if this was slip stitched or machined in some way... does this technique (or something like it) ring bells with anyone? I thought that this would be a great way to start beginners off and to use up all those odd shaped scraps I have in my bag of scraps that are to big to be thrown away but to small to do anything really useful with...

    I would be so grateful if anyone recognises what I am talking about... it will stop me having to go under the sofas... and yes, I have googled too.

    sounds like a quilt as you go- or Cotton Theory quilt- there are tutorials here, on u-tube, all over showing how to add the sashing between blocks- just look up either 'Cotton Theory Quilting' or quilt as you go.
    basically- you stitch the sashing strips to one side of a block- fold it out to cover the seam between blocks and stitch down on the second block- some people whip stitch this by hand- many machine stitch them- some use decorative stitches.

    Are you referring to Quilt as you Go method? I remember seeing something on the board about this method.
