I am kind of fascinated with the Quilt as you go method.  I don’t use it very often…sometimes 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.

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 the 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.

If you are looking for a quick tutorial on how this process is done– check out the quilt as you go how to.  You can also learn the whole process here as well.
