Quilt-As-you-Go without sashing – video tutorial

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.

My book Turnabout Patchwork
