Quilt-as-you-go

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This was my second 'real' quilt - I thought the 'quilt-as-you-go' technique looked easy (until i had to work out how to put all the blocks together...) I am very proud that I finished it and that it fits our bed perfectly (more out of good luck than good management). What advice would you give someone starting this project? Projects that provide a degree of 'challenge' are often more satisfying in the end.

Q&A with quilt-a-lot

TerryChase asked:
You did a great job. I agree, the system SEEMS easy when you first look at it, but assembling the blocks and all that top stitching when I did it nearly drove me batty. You can see mine under my projects. It's an African themed yellow and blue design.

Thanks - i looked for yours but wasn't sure which one it is - would you tell me the name of the quilt so i can find it please? Your projects are lovely - i'm sure you get heaps of enjoyment from them.

I must be missing something. Are there supposed to be a pattern and instructions for this method? I think it would be great, but need help, please. Thank you.
quilt-a-lot answered:
Hi, I didn't include the pattern - I found it in an old magazine (Quilter's Companion - Aust) so thought it would breach copyright to post it online. this link may help you: http://www.completecraft.com.au/?p=7216

quilt-a-lot answered:
Yes! that's the one - well done for tracking it down. I turned my 'on-point' for interest but either way looks good. Enjoy making it and post it when you are done - i'd love to see it.
