" sample book front - I started making this sample book many years ago. I have cut up old bits of domestic hand embroidery and sewn them into a book. I find it a useful reference tool when I am stuck for a stitch. In some cases I have deliberately sewn the fragment in back to front as I find the random marks on the back just as interesting." ~By Thread and Thrift Mandy Patoullah
Love this idea! Each square is individually machine quilted with a different design and then the squares are joined using a quilt as you go method. The back of the quilt is just as pretty but all coordinating solids, which really highlight the quilting designs. Pretty and beautifully textured.
Hello Everyone. When I cut my quilting fabric, I save all my fabric strings. Then use them to create my "End of Day" Quilters Baskets. This is another basket in progress. Great for storing quilts and quilt projects too! ✂️ Free Tutorial susies-scraps.com..Cute! kf
Quilt-as-you-go (QAYG) is a style of block-making that combines piecing your block with quilting. Why? Because when making a large quilt, quilting can be quite a challenge for those of us sewing on normal, home machines. QAYG is a more enjoyable way to finish a quilt, particularly if your quilting pattern is complex. And quilting around lots of ticker tape scraps definitely qualifies as complex. If you're newer to quilting, I recommend QAYG!
