Sixteen Questions
Welcoming 2008 and Wrapping Up 2007!


Quilt-As-You-Go is a wildly popular quilting technique these days.  As you might suspect from the title, it allows you to quilt as you piece, rather than piecing the entire quilt and then quilting it.  It is a time saver and for someone like me, with a tiny space, it helps me get the bigger quilts done.

I belong to an online art quilt discussion group and someone posted a question about how to enlarge an already completed quilt, binding already on and such.  I haven't done it, but I suggested using Quilt-As-You-Go because I figured it would be seamless.  So, I thought I'd share the instructions I wrote up to explain the basic process:


I really enjoy this technique and am currently using it to finish my Dear Jane quilt.  If you'd like to learn more about Quilt-As-You-Go, I found this book on Amazon:

Reversiblequilts_2 I don't own the book and I haven't read it. But, the reviews are glowing (which is not true for most of the other quilt-as-you-go books).  And, as the title indicates, one of the things that is so very cool about the Quilt-As-You-Go method, is that you can create a two-sided quilt -- a quilt that works from the back and the front!  That's very cool in my opinion!

In other news, this will probably be my last post for a while as I am going away for a week and I'm not sure if I'll have any internet access.

I'm still planning on doing Photo A Day.  But, I probably won't have a chance to post any of them until I come back.  I hope you play along too!
