Quick and Easy Quilt-As-You-Go Method

(Beginner Friendly)

This is a method for joining rows or sections of quilts, not the kind of quilt as you go where you are piecing the block as you quilt.

What quilts suit this method best?

– Large row or column-based quilts  – Adding Borders to quilts – Court House Steps style quilts – Block by Block

Step 1: Quilt your first Block, Row, or Section. 

You can use whatever method of quilting you like here from straight line quilting to free motion quilting.

Step 2: Cut or Piece your next section.

I choose some orange fabric and cut it about an inch longer than the side of the first ‘block’/section I wanted to join it to.

This is the cool bit, the joining method. So take your quilted first block or section and place it right side facing up.

Step 3: The Joining Method

Then place your second section and lay the top fabric right side facing down on top of that.

Then place your batting for your second section on top of the second section that is now lying wrong side up.

Once your two sections are joined you can quilt that second section as desired. I used semi-evenly spaced wavy lines for this quilt.
