Quilt as you Go Strip Quilt

Update 3/18: Here are some recent photos of this quilt as-you-go strip quilt. The pattern and technique can be found in my first book, Quilt As-You-Go Made Modern.)

Original post:

I was going through my camera and found all these beautiful photos I had taken of my quilts and thought I need to get these up on my blog! What better way to archive my quilts ๐Ÿ™‚ For those that follow me on Facebook and Instagram, sorry for some of the repeat pictures.

This is one that I made last month using my modern Quilt as you Go
method. The pattern will be in my book which comes out in September.ย  The book couldn’t come any sooner! I’ve found that one of the hardest parts about doing my book is not being able to share this technique with you all until it comes out. It’s such of a fun, simple, fussy-free and best of all, creative technique – I absolutely cannot wait to share it!

In the meantime, I will have a sample quilt as you go tutorial coming soon on my blog. I couldn’t leave you all hanging! I promised the tutorial last week, but there were some delays as I’m working with Pellon brand to get the tutorial out. Also, if you’re in the Seattle, Washington area I teach classes (check my blog for details).

I’m obsessed with this red biased binding – this is the 2nd quilt I’ve binded with it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Being a mama that takes countless photos of her munchkin, you’ll see this cutie pop up in my quilt photos a lot.

…now isn’t this a cute bundle? ๐Ÿ˜‰


ย He’s my pride and joy… my life. ๐Ÿ™‚


A quilt plus chubby baby feet. You can’t go wrong!

The fabric I used is Scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille for Moda Fabrics. I love their fabrics and am excited to use their latest collection called April Showers. It has that vintage retro look to it – absolutely love!

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my quilts. I’ll work on being better about doing more blog posts this year.

Happy quilting!

    Jera: When is your book coming out. I live in Florida so Washington is kind of far to learn your technique!

    I'm also a Florida girl — waiting for your book. I've been following you for a while and I love your quilts and have used several of your tutorials. My youngest son has moved to Seattle–I'm thinking a visit and a quilting class might be in my future.
