Quick Quilt as You Go

Quick Quilt as You Go

QuiltingCoach Penny

Quilters are always looking for techniques that will reduce the time it takes to cut fabric and sew their patches together.

 

That way you can spend more time enjoying the quilt.

This quilt uses some of the best time-saving techniques available!

The patches are simple to cut in that you just layer squares of fabric on top of each other and then run your rotary cutter through the pile.

You can use templates to cut them or not - it's up to you.

And then these blocks are sewn together using a Quilt as You Go technique so each block will be layered and quilted and then the blocks will be sewn together to finish the quilt.

To make this a little easier, I decided to use a Civil War Layer Cake fabric collection from Moda. That way, you start the project with squares of fabric that are already cut and all you need to do is cut the patches.

During the roll out of this project, lessons were posted one per week. At this point, they are all posted, so you can see them as your leisure.

 

Enjoy and Happy Quilting!

Penny

History of Sharing Quilt Patterns
When settlers began expanding the American West in the 1800s, newspapers began cropping up everywhere. While most "women's work" was considered to be home-related, some women did enter the field of journalism as editors and reporters of western papers. . . . keep reading

QuiltingCoach Penny
Quick Quilt as You Go Lesson 3
Layering and Machine Quilting Now that your blocks are sewn together and you have determined your block layout, you are ready to layer and quilt your blocks.

Quick Quilt as You Go Lesson 2 Layer, Cut, and Sew
QuiltingCoach Penny
Quick Quilt as You Go Lesson 2
Layer, Cut, and Sew Once you have chosen your fabric and identified the value of each fabric, it is time to get ready to layer and cut them. The idea with this process is that you can easily cut your fabric without using templates. Since these patches are cut into 4 sections, the easiest way to mark where to cut them is to mark your rotary cutting mat. . . . keep reading

"When I have been having problems getting in the mood to work on my quilts that I am committed to finishing by August I just have to check in at the quilting site and I'm back in the mood. It has been wonderful."

"I have recently discontinued my membership, but strongly feel the need to say that you have certainly had a huge influence on my life. Your internet quilting club has given me wings as a quilter. The reason I am discontinuing my membership isn’t because I am not satisfied with what I’ve gained from it, it’s because I’ve got so much to do – it will take me more than two years to complete it all. (I’m a slow quilter ok!) I have not got so many UFO’s (trust me, there are a few hidden safely away!) as that I have WDHT’s (wanna-do-haven’t-had-time’s).

Thank you Penny – your inspiration has been much appreciated.

Regards,"
