Quilt As You Go Log Cabin

I’ve been blog-hopping in search for a pattern for the quilt I am planning to make for my DH. Then it dawned on me…how am I going to machine quilt such a big quilt on my home sewing machine?

I remember reading about this Quilt As You Go method. Off I go again to ‘research’ from fellow bloggers…isn’t Blogville such a wonderful place? Bloggers are the most giving, sharing and generous people on earth!

Did you know that there are so many methods to this Quilt As You Go method?! Anyway, I finally chose this Quilt As You Go tutorial by Julia @ Julia’s Place.
Her pictorial tutorial is crystal clear. Thanks Julia.


I made this ‘prototype’ yesterday. It was quick to stitch. What’s taking most of my time is cutting the strips. Can someone give me an AccuQuilt GO! ?
Great as a table runner or placemat too.

  1. Certainly saves a lot of time, doesn't it? Even if you have to slow down a bit to cut the strips. Well done! ~karen (kaholly )

  2. If we lived close, you could use mine.

  3. Wish I had one too. I'm imagining all the perfect 2.5" binding strips I'd cut with it....

    Beautiful fabric selections for your runner. :)

  4. That gives me inspiration to try quilting. :) Very pretty!

  5. Love it! I really want to try a quilt as you go!

  6. Looks so great! And I agree, there is so much to find in blogland! I have been wanting to sit down and read some of these quilt-as-you-go methods myself, I'll go check Julia's out.

    Thanks for linking to Fabric Tuesday, see you next week :)

  7. Love the colours in this. It will be beautiful as a table runner. I have to admit, I am somewhat in awe of anyone who quilts! I have never been able to get the hang of it. I'm visiting from TRH, I'd love to have you visit me too!

  8. Very pretty!

    Found you through Tea Rose Home.


  9. Wow - wish I could sew so well !
