Quilt As You Go with a modern, fresh twist! No one will ever never know your quilts are quilt-as-you-go and that's the twist.

Quilt As You Go is the process of making quilt blocks (up to 16 inches square) and then quilting them - it's so easy! Join the quilted blocks and you almost have a finished quilt, you just need the binding.

This book teaches a few modern twists on a very popular technique which results in simple, easy to make quilts that can be made from "fat quarters", "jelly rolls" and "charms" as well as yardage and scraps.

You'll learn to make four easy quilts, tips for preparing your blocks for quilting, four methods of straight line machine quilting, 15 photos take you step-bystep through the joining process and an easy machine binding that finishes up with our "pretty corners" technique!

With each of the four quilts you'll see a slightly different way to incorporate quilt-as-you-go into modern quilts.

Each of the four twists can be adapted in several ways, making this a technique book that just keeps your inspiration going.

Marguerita and her daughter Sarah, best known for their book Crazy Shortcut Quilts, have reinvented quilt-as-you-go and share all their new tips with you in this compact, exciting book.

From the Author:

If you liked our first book, Crazy Shortcut Quilts, you're sure to love this one.  
What's different? 

  • You are building blocks using easy piecing techniques, not with "sloppy crazy cutting". 
  • You can use scraps, jelly rolls, yardage and charms as well as fat quarters. 
  • We're using our walking foot to do easy straight line quilting instead of decorative stitches, although you could use decorative stitches if you want to - these are YOUR quilts!
  •  Each of the four quilts is joined in a slightly different way, which hides the joining strips and gives them a modern look.  
  • The joining and binding chapters have been updated with new tips and photos.
  • This is a smaller book but instead of one technique, you get several - pick the one you like best and finish a quilt today!

What's the same? 
  • You are still working with the same sized squares/blocks for cutting and quilting, 
  • The basics of the joining process are the same.
  • You'll have a finished quilt when you are done - not just a top that needs to be quilted. 
  • The quilting is easy and your machine and walking foot do all the work - no free motion quilting.
  • The quilts and patterns given are as much inspiration as they are patterns - just our other books - these teach you the basics and let you create on your own from there.
  • The binding is still the same, just finished with a straight stitch, with updated photos.
