This is my new love! I've always wanted to have a bash at Quilt as you go..and through one link or another I stumbled across this..here
Its not a tradional way, as you don't add the backing until last, therefore the back won't be technically quilted, just a bit of stichin in the ditchin! But it has meant that I can test out a few new stitches on my new machine and the quilt top will be lovely and quilted.
At the moment I'm not sure how big to go, I might stop at 9 squares, add a Q.A.Y.G. border and then hand tie with a button on each square and use as a throw...not sure yet...and I'm getting impatient!!
|each square of batting starts out approx 14 inch square|
|each oblong of fabric..I didn't use a ruler...is sewn log cabin style and quilted as it is layed down|
|I'm currently hiding from the Quilt Police as there are some VERY DODGY stitches that are TOO nicely in focus!!|
|BUT who would know and I won't tell if you don't...|
Project Linus day of quilting on Saturday here in Derbyshire..we have a machine you could borrow, we have the fabrics and the batting ...we even have lunch. If you're free and would like to spend a day quilting for a VERY good cause - let me know and I'll forward you details .
