    This looks like a fun option. It looks like it would solve me space issues when working on a large quilt! Thanks for sharing

    I get confused when the squares are sewed together. I know you have added the material between the squares, but what if you don't want that look.

    I can't remember where, but I have seen one were the backing is laid first than the batting.With the top, the first row is(it was strip of fabric) bast on, (you roll up the botton of the backing and batting while you sew the Next row to the frist row. As you unroll you sew on the next row. I don't know about doing this with a large quilt but it looked so simple for the lap quilt being prepared. Has anyone seen this method before are tried it.

    Hi - I just completed the second big quilt (queen sized) and basted and quilted this one in sections by columns. I used the back and a complete piece and then added a row of batting and the first row of pieced quilt (btw the first row is actually the center row of the quilt and I basted it to the center of the backing). I then quilted this row and then I joined pieces of batting to each side of the next row, sewed pieced row and quilted. ( I had to cut the batting a bit larger than the width of the row so I could join it comfortably for the next row.) I then added a row on each side of center over the joined batting and quilted these rows. After allof the rows were in place and quilted, I added batting and borders and then bound the quilt. I just finished it this afternoon and I will post a photo tomorrow. I am very happy with how this went, and it turned out much better than I had even hoped. Hope this helps.

    Hi Deb, I must admit, I made my very first quilt as you go while rving this winter. There was not much room in my fifth wheel to lay out my quilt so I did a quilt as you go and used the technique you are showing. My quilt turned out beautiful...such an easy technique. Thanks for sharing.

    But I still dont understand how you attach the blocks to each other and make the quilt fall nicely when used?
    Perhaps this video link will make it clear.

    Thanks for the help. I live in an RV so space is a premium and this technic will be a big help. Trying to quilt a whole quilt at a time would be a hassell.

    This is very interesting, but I am the recipient of quilted blocks (machine quilted) that have all three layers the same size! There is no overage in the backing material to stitch together, then fold over and stitch. I have seen some instructions on adding narrow strips to the front and back of the blocks, then sewing another block to the front, open it, add a strip of batting and then fold over the backing strip to the second block and hand stitch/whip the edge closed. Does anyone have a better way of doing this? Thanks, mariesto

    How about a rag quilt made with these blocks?

    I'm thinking about doing this with a cotton topping and fleece backing with no batting. Do you think the corners where 4 blocks meet would get too bulky with this technique?
