Quilt As-You-Go Made Modern, book Giveaways!

Before I begin, I have to get this off my chest… 🙂 …A heartfelt thank you to all that support my blog and facebook. I
don’t have many quilty-friends (this is honestly my alter-ego!), so this blog really has been a creative
‘quilting’ outlet for me. Without your comments and support, I most likely would not have kept up my blog. I love sharing my quilty-endeavors
with you all – thank you for your support and enthusiasm! Much love for that.This giveaway has ended and the winners have been contacted. Thank you all so much for participating! In another world, I’d give each and every one of you a book (i wish!) 🙂 happy quilting!

Okay! Now on to some fun stuff! To celebrate the launch of my new book, I’m giving away three free signed (by me 😉 copies to you lovely peeps! To enter to win:

1. Leave a comment to this blog post.
2. Include a way for me to email you. 

This giveaway will end on Tuesday (September 16), after I draw the names of 3 winners. I will then contact the winners directly for shipping information. 🙂

The rest of this blog post is to share some beautiful Quilt As-You-Go (QAYG) projects that will be in the book. Let me start by telling you how I got started on this adventure that became this book…

It began with my blog, www.QuiltingInTheRain.com, which I started four years ago as a creative outlet from my 9-5 job, and as a way to share with the world that quilting doesn’t have to be as daunting as it appears! It was actually my husband who encouraged me to start a blog.  I’m a self-taught quilter – the first quilter in my family! My motto has always been to “let your creativity Rain!” That being said, when it comes to quilting I like to bend the rules. I find quilting more enjoyable and creative when doing so. 🙂
After having my son (who is now 2.5 years old!), I found myself quilting in the wee hours of the night when handling a rotary cutter and trying to cut precise measurements from a pattern just wasn’t happening. Not to mention that my crafting room became my son’s nursery so I was ‘downgraded’ to a little sewing nook in my dining room. That’s when I started quilting as-you-go.
I started with making QAYG pillows and table runners and then decided to try
making a whole quilt. I was enthralled with this technique because I was able
to complete a full size quilt on my smaller sewing machine, from start to
finish! It feels good when you can say that. Also, it’s a truly creative way to
quilt that doesn’t always require a precise pattern.
You can easily accomplish intricate quilting on a basic sewing machine because you’re quilting onto smaller, and therefore more manageable batting blocks. Once all your blocks have been quilted, all you need to do is assemble them, add backing and bind it, then you’re done!
People always ask how I crank out so many quilts so fast
having a part-time job and a kid, and it’s all thanks to this technique. I set
totally doable goals and try to quilt at least 2-3 blocks/day. You don’t need a
lot of space to lay out your fabrics/blocks because you’re quilting directly
onto the batting, so it’s easy to start and stop. By the end of the week I
typically have enough blocks for a whole quilt and since I’m literally
quilting-as-I-go, I have a nearly finished quilt!


I started teaching QAYG classes and it was a hit because it’s such of a practical technique. If you don’t have along-arm sewing machine, gone is the frustration and physical strain of trying to quilt and pull a big quilt sandwich through your sewing machine. And no more unfinished quilt tops lying around!
I am truly thrilled to be sharing this technique with you.
It’s a great technique for a new and seasoned quilter. In my book I discuss how
you can follow a traditional pattern and still apply this QAYG technique, or
you can make a quilt without a pattern using an improvisational style of QAYG,
as shown above and below. It’s a really creative and way to quilt, and it’s simpler
than it sounds!


Below is a preview of some of the quilts that will be in my book (if the exact quilt is not in there, the pattern will be!) Once you learn the technique discussed in the first chapter, you’ll be able to look at any pattern and figure out to finish it using QAYG.
Also, a fun little tid bit: I’m from Seattle so I’ve named all my quilts Seattle-themed. The strip quilt above is called Solstice Parade (named after a parade that takes place every summer in Fremont, a neighborhood in Seattle) and the one below is Portage Bay (a bay located near the University of Washington).
(Above: Paige modeling ‘Ballard Blocks’ from Quilt As-You-Go Made Modern)Oh! And for all of you fans of my furry-child and quilting buddy Paige (pictured above), you’ll be happy to hear that she has a whole page (no pun intended!) in my book dedicated to her, because she’s a diva like that. 😉

Thank you for stopping by! Don’t forget that you can also find me on Facebook and Instagram as well.
I hope this book brings you lots of creativity and many finished quilts! I am so happy to be sharing this simple and fun technique with you all!
Let your creativity rain, and happy quilting-as-you-go!

    CONGRATULATIONS! The book looks great! I did a couple of quilts way back when I started using the QAYG method of the 90s,I don't know if I could even remember so I'll enjoy getting an update to this great technique!

  3. Terri nana of 2 September 8, 2014 at 11:09 pm #

    I adore your quilts I could really use this as I make really large quilts for people and it's so hard to quilt them pretty on a regular machine. Always love seeing your adorable son and dog on Facebook. Just joined instagram so I'm following there too. So attracted to the fabrics you use. Wish you the best of luck with your book!

    So excited for you! I am also super excited about this book too. I love to quilt, but can't afford to send my quilts out to be quilted, so I have been quilting them on my extremely small home machine. Sometimes quite frustrating, actually frequently frustrating. I have been just starting to look at this technique, so your book is coming at an excellent time. I can't wait. CDahlgren at live dot com

    I am a quilter-wanna-be, but I'm so intimidated by the whole process. My grandmother made quilts, and I want to continue the tradition. I have a great sewing machine, and plenty of material. I just need help to get going. I would love a copy of your book to help me create beautiful quilts like yours. They are so different from the standard, boring, blah quilt patterns that I see everywhere. Congratulations on your book! Thanks!

    I haven't tried the QAYG method yet; but I've been wanting to. The mystery to me was how you joined the blocks without them being too bulky. But the quilts always look so beautiful. I'd love to have your book and see how you do that! Thanks!

    Congratulations on the book !!!! I am a big fan of QAYG since taking my first quilting classes WAY back in the mid 1980's …… those classes were based on Georgia Bonesteel's "Lap Quilting" method ( basically QAYG but she did all hand quilting). Anyhow, I'm happy that QAYG has a new generation of followers …… and I'd LOVE to win a copy!!! My email is maryannedrury@gmail.com

    My first quilt made 20 years ago is a sampler I made in a class where we used the quilt-as-you-go method. I loved it for the same reasons you mention. I also lost my sewing room to babies, but now my first baby has moved out and I have a new sewing room and would love to try some of the more modern quilts in your book.

    I preordered your book and can hardly wait for it to arrive. I've only been quilting for about one year. You've been such an inspiration for this 62 year-OLD woman!
    I would love to have a signed copy of your book as Seattle Washington is geographically undesirable to be at your book signing for a Georgia gal. LOL! My daughter is also a quilter and I would love for her to have a copy!
    Thank you for writing your book and patterns. Writing a clear, concise pattern is truly a gift! I hope to teach my granddaughter with some of them.
    Best wishes for a huge success at your book signing!

  107. Lisa Davis September 9, 2014 at 2:59 am #

    Amazing! I cant wait to learn QAYG. I am 9 months into self teaching sewing and quilting. I have made many of your patterns from this blot. I wish you success on this book and hope it opens many more adventures for you and your family. Lisway 1 at Yahoo dot com

    The quilt-as-you-go method makes so much sense! I love to hand quilt, but getting the quilts done this way is time consuming. Your quilts are very happy and cheerful! Great color selections. I wish you great success in your future!

    I think it ate my comment when I had to log in. Ooops. Anyway, I'm so excited about this book! I'm a newbie to quilting (heck, sewing in general for that matter) and the idea of quilting as you go sounds a lot less daunting! Especially since I'm lacking space. I'm so happy I found your blog!

  123. MrsKelly September 9, 2014 at 5:44 am #

    I read your blog for some of the same reasons you write it- no quilty friends or family. I'm a longtime sewist, but very new to quilting. I love that a small amount (read: affordable) can go so far.
    Thanks so much for sharing your creativity, your family, and yourself with us.

(By the way – love all the Seattle theme names! I moved from the Seattle area about 12 years ago and miss it like crazy!)

    Congratulations on the new book, and I'm hoping I am one of the fortunate winners of this giveaway. Some year back, I made a quilt as you go quilt and gave it away to our daughter. I loved it, especially since I'm petrified to attempt anything but straight line quilting on a large project. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity.

    Hi and thanks so much for the chance to win one of your wonderful books. I could afford it on a lay-a-way but not so much on a senior fixed income, so hoping I will luck out and win one. IF not…an early congratulations to the ones that win. I've always wanted to do a quilt as you go project.

    in addition,for any concerned, I make and give away (postage included) dolls for kids with cancer and other devastating diseases. this is not a corporation and is non profit so has been dependant on donations. So far 198 have been given out since 2007, and we shall continue as long as possible. check out http://www.dollsforverysickkids.com for further information.. wordpaintervs@live.com to write me and my name is Vickey Stamps

    the dolls are 2 foot tall, and meant to comfort a child in need of that, during a bad part of there life. contact me if you know of a child like this. Receiving a doll DOES NOT DEPEND ON A CONTRIBUTION AT ALL

    Really beautiful quilts and a great technique which I would love to learn – fed up with hauling my quilts through the small throat opening of my machine. Fingers crossed to be one of the chosen ones.

  248. Clothkitty September 10, 2014 at 8:23 am #

    Can't see my last comment so I'll try again. Would love to learn this technique to save my shoulders while quilting. Love your designs and fabric choices. A long time reader of your blog from over the pond I am always a little sad when I see mentions of your classes in Seattle as I know you're justt toooooo far away for me to get to one 🙁 Winning one of your books would help with that.

I bought and finished the low-volume disappearing 9 patch kit and I love it!! Would love to try QAYG…it looks a little intimidating but beautiful. My daughter texted me from Portland and said "mom, have you heard of this QAYG thing?" I said…absolutely, that's Jera in Seattle 🙂

    I am just getting into the "modern" movement and would love a copy of your book. It's getting much more difficult for me to maneuver large quilts on my home sewing machine. Thanks for this opportunity. phoebewolf5@hotmail.com

  341. quiktemper September 16, 2014 at 6:15 pm #

    Your quilts are so lovely! I have two goals these days: to learn to QAYG and to sew my first modern quilt. Your book is perfect for this!

    Congratulations on your book! The very first quilting lesson I took when I first moved to Seattle was with you, which was a private binding lesson. You were so sweet and patient. Can't wait to see your book in person!

  346. Leslie Bower September 17, 2014 at 1:39 am #

    I am always looking for new ideas and shortcuts to make quilts for the Santa Train and our wounded military men and women. I could really put this book to good use. Thank you for the chance to win.

    My book came in the mail today! I am so excited! I quickly ran all my errands for the day and am settling in the big ole Papa bear chair with my sweet tea to read from cover to cover! I have never anticipated a book (other than the Harry Potter series) as I have this one! Congratulations on your first book.

    Just received Quilt As You Go Made Modern in the mail today Jera. It's a beautiful book and I cannot wait to start using the techniques you use!

  354. Debbie Reid February 21, 2016 at 11:42 pm #

    Hello Jera, I bought your QAYG made modern recently, but am having a problem getting quarter inch seams through the batting, evenwith my walking foot.
    should I use more than a quarter inch to compensate?

    • Quiltingintherain February 23, 2016 at 7:28 pm #

      Do you mean your needle is having trouble getting through the batting? Try putting your stitch width at 3.5. If the stitch width is too small, you will have issues getting through the batting. Also, did you use needle punched batting?

  355. Burise-Lantz July 11, 2016 at 12:49 pm #

    I would love to learn more about this technique. I am a teacher and don’t have a lot of time but I love to quilt! This sounds like a great idea. I would love to win your book!

  356. Karen Lowrance August 13, 2016 at 4:00 pm #

    Love your twists on some old favorites! can’t wait to try them, congrats.

  358. Betty McCullough August 27, 2016 at 2:38 am #

    I love the quilt with bright colors and your new book is beautiful. I would love to make a quilt out of your book. I’ve been collecting reproduction prints from 30’s & 40’s. After falling and breaking my leg I’ve done a lot of appliquéing. Thank you for your blog.

  359. Linda Noon September 14, 2016 at 2:54 pm #

    I have never tried QAG but after reading your blog and seeing all your lovely quilts i would love to have a go. Thank you for sharing.

  360. Pamela Sutton January 4, 2018 at 6:48 pm #

    I love your work! It’s clean & fresh & your book (QAYG Made Vintage) is wonderfully pictured & easy to understand. I love fabrics that have rich colors & roses, full thick lush roses or florals are my fav. Loved your spin on designing fabric from tea cup patterns. Can’t wait to see what you come up with next. Am going to use one of your methods to QAYG one of my projects. Also, love your videos!

  361. Gini Hernandez January 26, 2018 at 6:51 pm #

    Thank you so much for creating this wonderful book in the midst of your full life! I currently live in a small apartment and am teaching myself quilting. It’s amazing therapy and your creative approach has opened so many doors for future creations. Your little boy is adorable! I well remember my grandsons at that precious age. Warm wishes, Gini

    Would love to learn more about your QAYG technique. The book sounds great! Thanks.

  365. Linda Kosarski July 5, 2019 at 1:49 am #

    I am 77 and would like to do these quilt as you go patterns you show. Love the cottage shabby and chic look although there is nothing shabby about these quilts. On a limited income,can’t always get the books and other things I enjoy, so hope I win one.

  366. Pat Davis July 10, 2019 at 3:42 am #

    I watched some of your videos and loved them. I volunteer for a charity that has a quilting bee every year and those quilts are put into a quilt closet to be given to those in need who come in for help. This last year was our 23rd year and we have made and donated over 6000 quilts. I have been hesitant to try the QAYG method but would love to try it after watching your videos and would love to have one of your books. My email is pdavistx@hotmail.com

  367. Jo April 1, 2020 at 6:46 pm #

    This concept of quilting as you go sounds like something I would really like to try! The quilts that you have displayed are beautiful!


  368. Andi May 14, 2020 at 12:08 am #

    Hi there! I realize this post is old, but I was curious about the quilt pattern for the 5th (corgi laying on the quilt) and 6th photo on this post? It looks really similar to what I have in mind for a floral/strawberry quilt. I am new to quilting and just curious! Thank you so much!

    I will also be checking out your book!


  369. charlotte adams June 27, 2020 at 1:51 pm #

    Hello, I love you quilts. I have quilted for many years and it is so fun to see new methods and designs.

  372. Wendy Ford November 1, 2020 at 6:33 pm #

    You blog is nice and your quilt projects are beautiful. I found this page from a link on Facebook. However i was disappointed to see that your blog is now 6 years out of date. the free book give away is long over. Have you abandoned this blog or are you going to update it ?

  373. Jannett November 2, 2020 at 3:09 am #

    I was so looking forward to get your book, but have you stopped doing the book give aways and your classes ??

  374. Carrie McKay September 10, 2022 at 11:35 pm #
