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.
There is no rhyme or reason to the types of blocks and techniques I’ve started with, these are just blocks that appealed to me from Pinterest,
or other blogs.
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.
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.
