The Simplest Quilt-as-You-Go Method Ever!

Last year, I think I have stumbled upon an even easier method and it is definitely my new favorite quilt-as-you-go joining method.

What quilts suit this method best?

– Large row or column-based quilts that you struggle to fit under your machine to quilt – Adding Borders to quilts – Super-sized Log-cabin or Court House Steps style quilts – Block by Block

Step 1: 

Choose a block, section or row you want to start with. For my baby quilt, I started with a roughly 10″ block.

Quilt your first Block, Row, or Section.

Step 2:

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.

Cut or Piece your next section.

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.

For this quilt, I used an overcast stitch on a domestic machine because I was mimicking the serger stitches in the videos where I saw this method originally.
