This is my truly first QAYG tutorial to assemble a quilt without sashing. And I’ve tested it with my latest quilt and it works great!
The video demonstrates block by block but you can do it strip by strip, half quilts, quarter quilts, you choose how big the pieces to assemble.
How to QAYG without sashing
Fabric collection on the video Valori Wells collection Murmur.
Would you like to try these techniques with some beautiful projects?
I received a copy of Quilt-as-you-go made modern by Jera Brandvig.
While I have tried some of the QAYG techniques before – see video below – the book is very thorough and detailed. Jera not only describes the technique but she also offers alternatives to the basic block by block quilting.
The book also has lots of diagrams that make it particularly easy to follow the patterns.
To top it all up you get to try the techniques in 13 different projects.
My book Turnabout Patchwork“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
