First of all, my apologies for posting this so late!!! If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you will have seen my progressive photos of me finishing this quilt. With Seattle’s dark weather lately, I’ve had trouble getting final pictures of this quilt, so I will have to settle with these. Sorry if it’s a little dark looking!
I wanted to thank all of you that went along on this journey for my very first quilt along! Whether you made the quilt or were following along, thank you for being here! I’ve truly enjoyed seeing everyone’s progress!
I hope you enjoy these pictures, and hopefully these (and everyone’s photos this past week!) will inspire you to make a quilt. For details on this Quilt As-You-Go (QAYG) technique, you can find my book, Quilt As-You-Go Made Modern here and here, for signed copies, or here for a kindle version. Thank you for your support!
My hope for this quilt along was to show you that quilting doesn’t have to be as daunting as it seems. You can finish a quilt from start to finish on your own, even without a ‘fancy’ sewing machine. 🙂 Also, I wanted to share with you a fun and creative technique. It’s a different way to quilt that doesn’t require a precise pattern; however, if you have a quilt pattern you can also finish it via the QAYG technique! There’s so many possibilities with this method. I hope it brings as much creativity and finished quilts to you, as it has for me.
Please share with me your finished QAYG projects! Please post them on my Facebook wall, tag me (and hashtag #quiltasyougomademodern) on instagram, or email me. I’m planning to do a blog post to share everyone’s completed quilts! Thank you!
Finally, I wanted to announce that with Thanksgiving around the corner, I have decided to auction of this quilt (plus a signed copy of my book!) on my blog. 100% of proceeds will go towards http://www.northwestharvest.org/, Washington’s statewide hunger relief agency. Please stay tuned for details!
I heartfelt thank you! And happy quilting as you go!
You have a lovely quilt! I've enjoyed following the progress while I've worked on my pile of WIP's. I have your book & hope to do one in the new year.
I buyed your book yesterday.
Greetings from italy 🙂
Beautiful quilt ~ I love the binding you chose! I'm still working on mine, but I can't wait to finish! Thanks so much for the inspiration!
Even though I didn't get my book in time to follow along I enjoyed following everyone's progress. Debbie
Your work is stunning!
I didn't make 5 blocks a week, but did get 9 done, enough for a small baby quilt. Very bright and very NOT me, I'm more comfortable with precise piecing 😉 Thanks for doing the QAYG Quilt Along 🙂
Loved following along, and I admire your generosity 🙂
I am anxious to get your book… I love your fabric choices
