Penny from Sewtakeahike recently completed an awesome quilt using the "Quilt as You Go" technique. Not only did Penny document her progress but also provided several informative tutorials detailing how to "quilt as you go".
Of course, I had to try it for myself.
And I have fallen in love with this (new to me) technique. Each block is quilted as it is constructed, which gives me the freedom to quilt exactly as I have always wanted without carrying the bulk of the entire quilt.
The blocks are wonderfully big at 14.5 inches, which makes a nice change from small HSTs. Choosing fabrics for these blocks has been fun and relaxing in an otherwise busy week (so far).

Thank you Penny!
