Today marks the end of Week 3 for my Quilt As-You-Go Quilt Along!
By this point, the goal was to have 15 blocks completed (5
blocks/week). If you’re not quite there yet, that’s okay! I’m thrilled
to have you quilting along. If you’re on track, that means you only have
5 more blocks to go!!! Only ONE week left until we assemble our (already quilted) quilts! You will LOVE how fast these Quilt As-You-Go quilts come together.
Goal: Today (Monday, November 3rd) marks the start of Week 4 for my
QAYG Quilt Along. The goal is to complete an additional 5 blocks within
the next 7 days (by Sunday, November 9). I will be checking in on social media to see people’s progress, and will do a follow up blog post this weekend.
How satisfying is this stack of 15 quilted blocks?! That’s what’s so
addicting about QAYG. It’s a practical and fast way to quilt. And you
don’t need a ‘fancy’ sewing machine to finish a quilt all on your own.
Working with smaller blocks is easy, creative and very forgiving. I hope
you’re all enjoying using this method! It’s not your traditional way to
quilt, but it works and there’s something to be said about being able
to make a quilt on your own, from start to finish. Good job everyone!
If you’re seeing this for the first time, you can find details about my QAYG Quilt Along from my Introduction and kickoff post to help get you started. You’re welcome to jump in at any time as I will keep this quilt along up on my blog. This quilt along is an excellent way for us to quilt together as a community and share our progress and work. It’s really been a blast seeing everyone’s progress! Check out my Facebook and Instagram for live updates and pictures on people’s progress (hashtag #QuiltAsYouGoMadeModern or tag me)!
Below is my book, Quilt As-You-Go Made Modern, available online or your local bookshop/quilt shop. 🙂 It’s temporarily out of stock on Amazon, but lots of people are finding it at Connecting Threads on sale! You can also find the e-book version here.
Good luck quilting your last 5 QAYG Quilt Along blocks! You’re almost there!!
As always, feel free to leave me a comment at any time!! Happy quilting as-you-go!
Doing Rainy Days from your book. Love how tidy and neat the blocks are once they are squared. All my blocks are done now and sewn into rows. Love this method!
Just brought your book. Really looking forward to starting one of your quilts x
Hi Jera…i am following your progress ..But due to time constraint i am not able to quilt in between the blocks but merely stitch into the ditch to catch the backing fabric..Mine is done..I will be making more of this to come..Thanx again !
I have your 2 books and this one is one of my favorite quilts but I am a beginner and it is very difficult for me to understand the instructions on the book. Do you have a video that I can watch ? It is much easier that way for me… thabks !
