Quilt as you go (QAYG) video tutorial

Quilt-As-you-Go video tutorial

I came across this technique recently and I decided to give it a go. I have to say it’s probably the easiest QAYG technique I’ve tried so far. And it has lots of potential too.

Are you going to give it a go?

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.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

  1. Hi Teresa
    I have made eight quilt as you go Covid quilts since August using the method of strips to sash my blocks together and strips to bind the quilt edges. Slow but accurate.
    Your method is appealing. When sewing the different coloured strips onto the batting, how do you maintain accuracy knowing when to stop stitching so you don’t stitch into the backing? Do you mark or go by feel? Does the batting ever stretch and put it out of square?
    Thanks! (I have your book and love your videos!)

  2. I will try this for sure. I like the idea and the ease of utilizing the backing for the back and front binding. Time saver!! Thanks you Teresa

  3. Thank you Shelah. I go by feel when stopping sewing the strips. I haven’t noticed the batting stretching but If it does you just need to trim it off.


  4. This is a great qayg book full of amazing patterns. For myself as a beginner quilter Jera’s instructions and patterns are easy to follow. Teresa I love your posts and your patterns, can’t wait to get your book in the mail. Cheers Janice
