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.
