    This method is also shown in all of the Fun & Done patterns. Great technique. And no affiliation, just teach the technique at our local quilt shop.

    I can't wait to try this. I'm too old to invest in a long-arm and don't really have the room. It is more rewarding for me to complete my whole quilt, even though it is a struggle to squeeze it under the machine sometimes. This sounds like a fun alternative, even though it's not used for every quilt.

    Seems like a neat way to finish a quilt. It is always nice to have options. I am curios though if you could do a blind hem stitch or blanket stitch to stitch down those 1" flaps? Also, for Franie...what about this method make a "flat" quilt?

    I just do a straight top stitch, but it may look really cool with a decorative stitch!
    I do want to emphasize that in order for your blocks to lay flat, it is really important that you sew your blocks together as so very close to the edge. This will also make sure that your 'sashings' are the same width. I will post more pics of this if wanted.

    Try 'Fun and Done Quilting'. It's an easy way to do quilt as you go, and looks fabulous.

    I use a similar method.I discovered it many years ago from a book by Georgia Bonesteele, Lap Quilting. She has several books out on this method of lap quilting/quilt as you go. Works great - no big frame to set up, or having to send it off to a long arm quilter.

    Deb,
    Thanks for this tutorial. Well done. I have a dumb question about binding it.

    Wouldn't you bind the outer edges the same way you did the sashings between the blocks? The way I see it, there will be a 1" border of backing around the entire quilt once all the rows are assembled that can be folded over and top stitched around.

    I hope this makes sense.

    I can sew what you are saying, and it would be a continuation of what has already been done with the inner pieces and an easy way to end the quilt instead of trimming off the outer edged and attaching a different binding strip. Gee, Janie, thanks for YOUR tip!

    Janie...........you make perfect sense. Yes, you will have that extra inch hanging out all around the quilt. Just take it and fold it over the edge to the top and stitch. This technique does look nice all turned and topstitched. And, yes, you can use some of the decorative stitches on your machine, but the topstitching is the neatest (I think).

    Patty,
    It's not often anyone tells me I make sense, let alone "perfect" sense, so you made my day! :mrgreen:

    Deb, thank you for the tutorial. I have been hesitant to try actual quilting - I've only done a couple small projects but this looks like something I could handle. Your directions and photos really helped me to "see" the process. I can't wait to see more pictures when you are done with the project.
