26 Quilt as You Go Tutorials

I am kind of fascinated with the Quilt as you go method.  I don’t use it very often…sometime I find it confusing to get all the parts right, but it’s a great method to use if you don’t own a big quilting machine.

quilt as you go tutorials / patchworkposse.com Learn how to stitch with your machine the quilt as you go method! So many options and tutorials to choose from. It's not just for quilts!

There is an additional beauty of -when it’s done, it’s done.  {besides the binding}  This works well for those who have a short attention span to sewing projects.  The smaller projects are a great way to get familiar and try out quilt as you go.  Always, always start small.

What is this technique you ask?  Well, to put it shortly– you are sewing the top piece of the fabric {or your quilt top} right down through the layers of batting and backing.  Sometimes it’s a sew and flip method, sometimes it’s- sew a block then quilt it, then put those together sort of thing.  The size of the quilt block can vary and come in rows even.

    I use quilt as you go for most of my quilts as I don’t have a quilting machine… I have made 97 quilts in the past six years and only 2 or 3 were not made in this fashion.

    I looked at the bag and the strip and flip tutorial and neither looked to be quilt as you go. In fact the bag wasn’t even a tutorial. Quite disappointing.

    If you look at the comments for the Quilt As You Go bag, you will see that the author gives a link to a general technique tutorial, and also gives simple instructions for the bag itself in a separate comment.

    This is totally new to me. I found you through pinterest. The blue tablerunner at the top is what caught my eye, as I’ve been buying fabric for table runners for Christmas. I don’t see instructions for that runner though. Any hints where it would be? I have a great fabric for it already!

    Sadly the picture is all there is left. The instructions are here: http://idahoquilter.blogspot.com/2008/03/quilt-as-you-go-table-runner-tutorial.html but the pictures don’t work any more for it.

    I make mostly quilt as you go quilts based on Sharon Pederson’s book, Reversible Quilts – Two at a Time. Both the front and back are ‘patterned’ and for the Bloomin’ Quilt as you Go, you could make the backs alternating fabrics (checkerboard style) and have an interesting reverse side.

    I want to know what you do with the thread ends here – pull them through or weave them in.

    I do not have a large quilting machine and I just wrestled a lap quilt on my sewing machine. I am interested in trying a quilt as you go plan.
