    Actually, the blocks are from a Block of the Month held in our local quilting store. The Quilt as you Go technique is the way I am finishing the quilt blocks. The two techniques are not related. I could send you copies of the instructions for the quilt blocks. There are 12 blocks, but I made 20 - doubled some. I could also send you copies of how to put it all together with the Quilt as you Go instructions!

    Send me a PM with your address is you want the instructions!

    Yes, and my DH won't let me forget it, either. I think he is starting to understand though. He is working on my 201, gonna change the grease as soon as it arrives. Thank you.

    Buslady,
    You have a very nice collection of machines. Have fun sewing with your 201!

    Thank you guys for the compliments! Quilt As You Go is a fun way to use your treadles or even the electric vintage machines. You are only working with one block at a time to quilt, but when I finish 4 blocks (the blocks are 17"s square), then you still have to do a little wrestling to attach them to the sashing. Not like trying to quilt a queen sized quilt, though, and wrestle the whole thing just to quilt it! I have done that many a time! The really neat thing about the way I did these blocks is your blocks don't have to all measure the exact same thing! When you use the back ground, attach it to all sides and put the blocks on point, wacky, then square each one up to 17 1/2"s, no one ever knows your blocks didn't all measure exactly 12 1/2 inches to start with! Love it!

    The really neat thing about this is that you can make a completely reversible quilt. Here I am using flannel on the back to make a comfort quilt, but I have done one completely reversible.

    Oh sorry about the pink, orange, and yellow stickies! I have to number the blocks to make sure they stay wacky!
    Nancy, is this quilt in a book that can be bought? I love it and would love to make it for my soon to be grand daughter (gonna marry my oldest grandson) Any info would be greatly appreciated. I love star quilts. Thanx
    Where is the picture of this quilt? I missed this one. I too would like to learn how to quilt as you go.
    Thanks

    There's one called "Ditter's string quilt" that is a good basic quilt on this board. Bobbie

    Can you move that post to the main thread here?
    At least I am hoping you can and that they qualify for posting on the Vintage space.

    Blessings,

    Sure will do ma'am!!

    Its snowing like crazy right now and we have close to 2" and gaining fast!! It looks like we are going to get around 8 to 12 inches. Fayetteville AR got hit with around 2' if my wife heard right and that system is just coming in.

    I will post photos when I pick it up at the ladies home. She had to move quite a bit to dig the machine out so I told her just call me when you have it out.
