I've been intrigued with the notion of Quilt As You Go, and on a whim, I decided I would give it a try. I read over the posts at Sew Take a Hike and followed those in general principles, although I wanted to make blocks with a larger scale.
I made seven blocks over the course of the weekend.
You start with a square of batting and basically cover the front with pieces, stitching each one down with rows of straight line stitching, before you sew the next one. These blocks are roughly log cabinish in construction. The jury is still out on what I think of this approach. It will probably come down to how onerous it is to put the back on it. We shall see.
