A while back I started a quilt-as-you-go project. I had never done one before and thought I should try this method.
Making up the blocks was a breeze and they were fun to quilt, especially as I could turn the block as I quilted - the only benefit to making a quilt this way- I discovered.
The blocks measured 18.5" square and I did a 3 x3 arrangement. The trouble started when I decided to add borders. It was time consuming and fiddly work having to splice wadding, then backing fabric and finally quilt.
A mistake I think as the quilt has turned out to be pretty heavy.
I needed the extra support of my ironing board whilst quilting it.
All the coloured fabrics I used are gorgeous batiks. I get them from a shop in Southport, UK.
Twice a year they come to the quilt show, so I get to stock up. They are called Crafts and Quilts. You can find them on Facebook too.
I'll be keeping this quilt for myself just because I love the batiks.
Enjoy your weekend quilty friends :)
