Quilt as you go made modern

I received a copy of Quilt-as-you-go made modern by Jera Brandvig.

While I have tried some of the QAYG techniques before – see video below – the book is very thorough  and detailed. Jera not only describes the technique but she also offers alternatives to the basic block by block quilting.

The book also has lots of diagrams that make it particularly easy to follow the patterns.

To top it all up you get to try the techniques in 13 different projects.

  1. Teresa, Any chance that you have done a tutorial on making a clamshell quilt? I’m trying to figure out how to put the uppermost row ‘partially’ together, as it will be trimmed away in the final stage. It just seems like there would be a way to cut just the lower portion of the clamshell, stitch upward a tad bit, then be able to attach the next row. AND I see people sewing the next row on left to right and right to left, some put the concave on top, some put the convex on top. I realize it becomes a personal preference, but I’ve watched your YouTube videos and I can understand your methods. So, if you have done a video, point me in the right direction and I’ll go view it. Thanks for all that you share with us. Luann

  2. With the quilt as you go is there a way to add the backing and not have it show the sash part?
