Quilt as You Go

Description: Learn two quilt-as-you-go methods to make quilting a large quilt on your home sewing machine more manageable. The quilt-as-you-go method of quilting produces completely quilted blocks first and then attaches them together to form the entire quilt. Choose to straight-line or free-motion quilt. Your simple blocks will blossom as your quilt comes to life.
