A Great Quilt-As-You-Go Method for Showcasing Just About Anything!
Do you have a collection of embroidered squares or vintage hankies you’d like to make into a quilt? This method is a super easy way to do that.
You can also showcase just about anything, like pretty fabric squares, orphan blocks and even doilies attached to background squares. This method works nicely when you don’t want to quilt inside the blocks, and even when you do.
Jenny, from the Missouri Star Quilt Company, demonstrates how to put those special blocks together. It’s a quilt-as-you-go technique that works beautifully for any time you want to put blocks together quickly.
In this case, 10″ layer cakes squares are used for the backing and sashing. Cut larger squares for larger blocks.
If you want to quilt inside the blocks, just do that before you stitch the backed blocks together.
Jenny does a lot of eyeballing, but feel free to measure for more accuracy between blocks.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
