    We've started 2010 with a new remodel and wanted to have a new quilt for our bedroom. I plotted this quilt on my EQ5, and used a quilt-as-you-go method found online at www.treadleon.net. Learned a few tricks as I went. I don't usually make large quilts (just too bulky to deal with). I have used this method on baby quilts and will continue with it this year. It feels so good to work in my new sewing room and use this wonderful stash I've accummulated. Happy New Year!

    Thanks so much. I like the back too, so this is a reversible quilt.

    Thanks everyone...I tried out the red and brown theme in my "girlie" bathroom (I've lived in a household of men, now only hubby and I and he has his own manly bathroom). Since our bedroom furniture is Danish Modern, I wanted a simple theme for the room. Also repurposed old sewing machines as lamp tables.

    Nice quilt, I went to that website you referenced, where on it did you find the quilt as you go technique. I am wanting to machine quilt myself but to try a big quilt in a regular home machine is too much for me, I really want to try the quilt as you go technique. Was it easy to piece the blocks together?

    I like your quilt very much. I want to do some like this. I like the simplicity of the square on a square or as yours rectangle on a square.

    kkbrand,
    I love this technique, because I wanted to quilt my own, also.; especially when I do "give away" quilts. Here's where to find the quilt as you go technique: www.treadleon.net Then go to The Quilt Shop, and then scroll down to Joining Pre-Quilted Blocks. Here's a couple more quilts I've done this way. Have fun!
