Quilt As-You-Go Made Modern: Fresh Techniques for Busy Quilters (Paperback)Jera Brandvig (author)
- We can order this
Introduce yourself to an easy quilt-as-you-go technique that's creative and expressive. With this method, instead of dealing with precise paper patterns and cutting measurements, fabric gets pieced directly onto small manageable batting blocks. The blocks can then be quilted (not the entire quilt!), whether in large abstract zigzags or small structured stitches. After the blocks have been joined, simply add backing fabric and binding and-voila-it's finished!
* A modern approach to quilting that's fresh, fun, and simpler than it sounds
* Great for moms or anyone with a busy schedule-it's easy to bring these 13 projects along, so you can pick up where you left off
* Go your own way: This method can be used with a pattern or intuitively improvised, creating a wide variety of design options
* Save money! Learn how to finish quilts without the use of a longarm professional

This method combines patchwork and quilting together as most of the quilting is worked in small areas. The fabric pieces are sewn directly onto cotton punched wadding which is cut 11/2" bigger than the finished block. There is no backing at this stage, only two layers are quilted. The quilted blocks are then trimmed to the correct size. After the blocks are joined together a backing fabric is attached, with minimal quilting, before binding the edges.* Patchwork & Quilting *
