Review of 'Quilt-As-You-Go Made Modern
'Quilt-As-You-Go Made Modern' by Jera Brandvig shows you how to put your quilt together after it has been pieced and quilted. You can do your piecing directly onto needle-punched batting for a quick project or make your quilt more traditionally by sewing your fabric onto the batting and piecing the batting together. Then, quilting can be done using the walking foot or using free-motion quilting.
I like the variety of patterns offered for the quick piecing directly onto the batting. Most of the patterns are good for scraps, too.
Brandvig offers a couple of different methods for putting the quilt together, including using the traditional method of sashings between the blocks, but also sewing the batting all together, pressing well, and adding a back, as for traditioanl quilting.
I have known about quilt-as-you-go quilting, but this book offers so many more patterns and ideas, and cements my ideas into concrete steps and methods that I can use. This book will also help the beginner, as the steps are easily demonstrated here. This is a fun book!
