New QAYG Experiments from The Free Motion Quilting Project

QAYG is short for quilt-as-you-go, the quilting term we use for connecting quilted blocks together. I've been playing around with machine embroidery this week and decided it was also time to experiment with some new quilt-as-you-go methods.


I'm giving myself permission to play and not worry about turning these into real finished projects. I've played around with these quilt-as-you-go techniques before, but never really gave them a chance.

Either I'm very practical or super lazy because once I found my favorite quilt-as-you-go method, I pretty much stuck with that ever since. But I've gotten a ...

"Critter Comforts #2", (another QAYG) from Elaine Adair Pieces

I still had more animal prints, more kids prints, more batting scraps, and more fabrics for backing squares so I'm making another QAYG, this time, a bit more girly, (more pinks).  Finished blocks (trimmed) are 8.5 in.  They are 6 x 8, a good size kids quilt.  Honestly, this has been pure fun!   It only me about 1-2 weeks.  I put one row together with sashing in less than one hour this morning.  I was VERY neat and precise, and the stitches on back fell neatly OFF the sashings, like I wanted.   If you've made this version ...

Workshop Wednesday: Two Quilt-as-You-Go Methods from McCall's Quilting

Not only are quilt-as-you-go techniques great for making projects quickly, they’re perfectly suited for anyone who’s ever wondered how to stuff a large quilt sandwich through the throat of a domestic sewing machine to be quilted.

With quilt-as-you-go (QAYG), you do the quilting in smaller chunks, then join the chunks, or rather, blocks at the end of the process. You can also combine QAYG with a string-piecing approach, which is particularly well suited for small home-dec projects made with strips.

Here are some tutorials on those two main techniques and some different projects you can make with them ...

Quilt-As-You-Go Chinese Coins from Pink Doxies



Chinese Coins
A Roman Stripe Variation
Also Reminiscent of Amish Bars


Moving right along with the theme of Roman stripe or Chinese coins, and adding a dash of scrappy goodness in both fabric and batting, I whipped up this delicious, little baby quilt! It took only a few days to complete, and not only did I have a top, but a completed quilt using the Quilt-As-You-Go Method. 

*In full disclosure, I am using the term loosely as I have never read the actual method, but seen a few You Tube videos using a  similar method. I blended everything I saw ...
