How to Quilt-as-You-Go Learner’s Quilt: Part 1

When I decided to take up quilting recently I recognised that I needed to do something to stop me from starting off with something overly ambitious!

What is a Learner’s Quilt?

I would define it as: Making individual quilt squares/blocks using different techniques but all in a quilt-as-you-go way so that I can join them all up at the end to make a sort of a sampler quilt.


For this project I’ve actually decided to mainly use two large fabric remnants that I have leftover from decorating my son’s room.

I used strips of my fabric in different widths, sewing right sides together through the top batting and backing all at once.

Scrappy QAYG Blocks

This method took a little more concentration than the scrappy strips blocks but I think for a first timer I did okay.

Flying Geese

Here are my first batch of hexagons. I haven’t decided what the final shape of this block will be when they are all sewn together.
